Job Description

Catalyst Science Discovery Centre and Museum is a unique science centre focused on the chemical sector and the UK’s only museum of the chemical industry. It plays a vital role as a communicator of STEM education, skills and knowledge and also, in preserving the heritage of the chemical sector and making this publicly available.
The Trustees wish to appoint a new Chair of Trustees to take this successful Centre and Museum forward. We are looking for a new Chair to provide inspiration, leadership, strategic guidance, and ensure effective governance of the Charity. Along with the Trustees, the Chair will support the Operational Team to achieve Catalyst’s mission, vision, and strategic priorities. The Chair will lead, with the Trustees, CEO and senior leadership team, the development of a new 5 year strategy for Catalyst that builds on its current position, the extensive work of the outgoing Chair, and its 35 year reputation.
The Chair should have enthusiasm for STEM and the chemical sector, and be an advocate for Catalyst, acting as an ambassador and the public face of the charity on occasions.

 

The Board are looking for an individual with proven senior leadership and strategic development skills. With good communication skills, governance experience, and who is a strong relationship builder. Ideally, someone with the ability to challenge the organisation to be bigger, bolder and better.
This is a part time voluntary role. Applicants are expected to have the experience to undertake this post, the time to commit to the work involved, and be happy to travel to Catalyst for meetings. The Board would welcome applications from as diverse a group of people as possible.
