Person Specification

We are seeking Governor candidates drawn to the Charterhouse's charitable focus of care and community, and with the personal qualities to play a leadership and governance role across all aspects of the Charterhouse community. New Governors will help build upon recent achievements whilst playing a strategic role in leading further change.

We are very keen to attract a broad range of candidates for these roles to reflect the community we serve and the London boroughs we live amongst.

An excellent relevant track record is expected and the ability to demonstrate charitable governance and rigorous compliance with a commitment to service and a clear appreciation of the charity and / or the health and care sectors is beneficial. We are also committed to strengthen our links with Charterhouse School by including some Old Carthusian (former students of Charterhouse school) as Governors.

For this phase of recruitment we seek individuals with skills and experience in the following areas:

  • Finance (ideally as a qualified accountant)
  • Legal
  • Those who have a strong interest in the work and mission of the Charterhouse

For these skill-sets please apply using the information on the ‘How to Apply’ page

We are committed to on-going excellence in our Governing body and welcome expressions of interest from individuals who may be interested in serving as a Governor in the future. We expect to require experience in the following areas over the coming years: Property, Care of Historic Buildings, Commerce, IT, Technology and Digital.
