Role Opportunity - Vice-President, Trustee Director, BCS Learning & Development Limited 2019 - 2022

BCS has over 70,000 members, with growing influence across government and industry. We are a ‘not for profit’ charitable foundation, operating within a Royal Charter, yet with strongly performing business activities. Our ambition is to “Make IT Good for Society”, achieved through our many initiatives, from education to commercial and public service. We are a voice respected world-wide for independence and influence.

Candidates should have experience at a senior level of a sizeable organisation (turnover >£20M). Relevant experience in the education and examination sector at Board level and non-executive directorships in the IT sector would be relevant. They should have a proven track record in commercial leadership, business development together with experience in product/service assessment and development.

Candidates must ensure the coherence of vision, mission, and objectives between the Board and its sole shareholder the BCS group. The ability to devote sufficient time to the duties of BCS’s Learning & Development Limited Board and as a member of Trustee Board is vital.

The appointment does require commitment in time - typically an average of 1-2 days per month (but flexibly). You are expected to be a Professional Member of the Institute. The role is not remunerated, but reasonable travel and out-of-pocket expenses will be paid.
