Chair Elect - join our trustee board!

Are you ready for something more and looking to make a difference to a worthwhile charity that makes a difference to many people’s lives?  Look no further!  Yellow Submarine, an award-winning Oxfordshire charity that enables people with learning disabilities and autism to live life to the full, is on the look-out for a new Chair of Trustees.  We welcome applications from individuals who share our values, meet the criteria in the role description, and are committed to helping Yellow Submarine thrive.

Yellow Submarine is in its 12th year.  It started as a niche charity offering holidays for children and adults and now also offers a range of activities, training and work opportunities through the cafés, and an especially designed skills development programme.  We’re unashamedly ambitious to make things better.  With a financial turnover of £800,000 (Y/E June 2020), we currently support over 500 members and their families through 20 members of full-time staff and 100+ members of sessional staff and volunteers.

If you are committed, passionate and strategic, we would love to hear from you.  If you also have experience in either fundraising or business development and/or have links to the local business community, do get in touch.

It matters to us to ensure everyone, from whatever background, and regardless of sex, gender, race, age (as long as you are over 16), sexuality, belief or disability has an equal opportunity to be considered for the role.  If you are interested in the role, we would love to hear from you.
