Job Vacancy: Thames Life Governance Manager

Thames Life Governance Manager

At Thames Ward Community Project we believe that long-term sustainable change is only possible when it is defined and led by local people, who initiate their own agenda and build it from within the local community.  Our vision is to be a catalyst for sustainable community-led change and our mission is to bring together schools, community groups and residents from across the Thames Ward of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to develop initiatives that will ensure residents have a strong voice and can influence change in the area.  Our objectives are to achieve better health outcomes and quality of life for residents and increase residents’ skills and job opportunities and improve the local environment.  We have established a resident-led Community Development Trust to develop this work. 

The Governance Manager will play an integral part in the day to day running of Thames Life. Working closely with the CEO and Chair of the Trustee Board, they will act as a source of governance advice and manage all aspects of Trustee Board and Council meetings and other committee meetings as required. The Governance Manager will also support the internal operations of the charity including confidential HR matters and compliance with relevant charity legislation.
