Vacancy for the Chairperson of the Board – Non-Executive Director (Voluntary)

The CRC is one of the largest voluntary organisations in Ireland working with people with disabilities, their families, advocates and supporters since its foundation in 1951. Through the provision of services, at both local and national level, the CRC aims to make a real difference to people with disabilities – adults and children – by providing a range of medical, therapeutic, social, educational and rehabilitative supports and interventions.

In 2014 a major revitalisation of the governance structures took place with the appointment of a competency-based Board and has since been the basis for
continuous improvements. This has been recognised in the achievement of the following awards.

  • Charity Excellence Awards 2019: Best Charity Board Award
  • Good Governance Award 2018: Best Governance Improvement Initiative

As the current Chairperson has served two terms on the Board she will be stepping down in March 2020.

The CRC is seeking a Chairperson who shares the organisation’s values of integrity, professionalism and valuing people. Bringing demonstrably high standards of
personal integrity and enthusiasm for disability services, the successful candidate will also have a strong record of providing strategic direction, knowledge of delivering organisational change and effective stakeholder management.

The CRC Board are seeking interested candidates from a broad range of diverse backgrounds who can add to the exceptional work achieved to date by the CRC
Board.

Applicants must submit a CV and supporting statement to demonstrate how they meet the criteria for the post to Therese Allen, CRC Company Secretary at tallen@crc.ie on or before 5.00pm, Monday 30th September 2019.
