The Big Draw is seeking a new Chair of Trustees to lead its Board.

Following seven years of outstanding stewardship the current Chair, Christopher Goodhart is stepping down and we are looking for a new Chair.

We are seeking an energetic, visionary and committed individual to help take the charity to the next level in terms of its sustainability, partnerships and profile - both in the UK and with our overseas partners and event organisers.

The successful individual will complement and strengthen our existing board and offer outstanding leadership, acting as a spokesperson and negotiator when required and Board Chair,steering the organisation through an exciting time of ongoing transition, change and development. Our new Chair will inherit a small and very passionate team/organisation, which punches well above its weight.
