Much as we have been reflecting on how our strategy needs to adapt, we have been reflecting on the skills and experiences we need to lead New Horizon in the years ahead. Central to these plans of course is our Board of Trustees. 

As the organisation moves into a new era, and with several long-standing Trustees with terms about to expire, we want to recruit four new, diverse Trustees to help guide us. We very much hope that you will be interested in becoming one of these new leaders and if so, the application pack details more about the process, which is being led by Inclusive Boards. 

 

Any new job listings or opportunities will be posted here and on our social media so we recommend following us on LinkedIn to be among the first to hear about any upcoming opportunities. 

"Our staff - whether full time, locum or volunteers - are absolutely crucial to the work we do. The relationships they build with young people who may have had no one to trust growing up are essential to the huge positive changes we see amongst those we support"
