We are currently inviting notes of interest from people who would like to hear more joining the Cornerstone Board.

As a member of our Board, you can help to guide the strategic future of the charity, ensuring exemplary governance and fiscal control that is in the best interests of our stakeholders and most importantly the people we support. Our Board ensures that the organisation’s strategy and policies are adhered to in line with our charitable purpose and ensures that Cornerstone complies with all applicable rules and regulations. The main Board meets four times a year and members support our key strategic subcommittees, as well as acting as ambassadors for Cornerstone.

We are particularly keen to hear from those with skills, knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas who feel they can make a positive contribution to our charitable activities:

   Management experience in social care compliance, quality and standards

   Senior management experience in the social work/ social care sector with strategic planning skills

There is no remuneration attached to the role but expenses are reimbursed.

We’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer and value the diversity of our workforce. We work hard to create an inclusive environment where each individual can bring their unique skills, experiences and ideas to the table to help us grow, bring creative innovative solutions and develop our people. We are therefore really keen to receive applications to the Board that reflect and enhance the diversity of the organisation.
