Role No: 993 

A Non-Executive Chairman is required for a UK Retail Shareholders membership organisation which supports individuals who invest in the stock market, based in London.

Our client is looking for a Chairman with stock market experience to scale the business.

The Non Exec Chairman will be expected to contribute up to 4 days per month pro bono with no remuneration. Expenses will be paid.

Business Concept and the Market:

  • Our client supports individuals who invest directly in the stock market. They do this by promoting individuals rights to quoted companies and by seeking to influence Government and regulatory policy. By doing so they help to protect member’s investments.
  • The organisation ensures that shareholders have their proper say as owners of the businesses in which they invest.
  • Our client also provides information including informative newsletters, various digital news channels, in-depth company reports, educational events, networking opportunities and company presentation seminars.
  • Their objective is to help retail investors make money by protecting their interests and making sure they stay informed.
  • Our client is a not-for-profit organisation, created by investors for investors.
  • The Board believe that there is considerable potential to both expand the membership and influence of the organisation as European retail shareholder orgnaisations are considerably larger than the UK's.

The Non-Executive Trustee Requirements:

  • Knowledge of stock market investment including AIM;
  • A background in the finance industry.
  • Experience of Chairing Boards of Directors.
  • Strong leadership skills and ability to contribute to the strategic direction of the organisation. 
  • Experience of working within the City and talking to senior industry and government representatives.
  • Some experience of not-for-profit or charity organisations (or Government bodies or quangos) would be helpful but not essential.
  • Sufficient time to be able to make the required commitment.
