Keith Rose, Chair of Trustees

Chair of Trustees Vacancy

After many years fruitful and successful service our current Chair, (Keith Rose pictured), is retiring soon as our Chair.  To allow some time for handover we're looking for a new Chairperson for our Board of Trustees to lead us in the next stage of our journey

We invite applications from those with the experience and qualities needed to chair a Board strategically and work with an Executive Director (ED) who manages operations.  Our Christian charity provides industry commended chaplaincy services to rail staff and those affected by railway operations.


You’ll be passionate about expanding our chaplaincy services in quality and coverage.  An organised, energetic and reliable leader, you’ll be dedicated to leading and supporting the Board and ED in achieving our vision.  A fluent and persuasive communicator with leadership and chairing skills, you will represent the organisation publicly and internally and build relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders, including engagement with senior figures across the rail industry to maintain and grow support for the RM’s work.


The role of Chairperson is a voluntary, unpaid, non-executive appointment. The role requires a commitment of approximately three to six days per month, with the capacity to flex upwards should the need arise.  The post holder can be based anywhere in England, Wales or Scotland.  If you are interested in exploring this opportunity further please email jon.smith@railwaymission.org by 20th February 2021 with a one-pager setting out your suitability and with your CV and contact details.
