Job Description

The Criminal Justice Alliance (CJA) is looking for a Chair to lead the Board of Trustees and the charity into its next exciting chapter and further grow its impact.

The CJA is a network of over 160 organisations working across the criminal justice system from prevention to policing, prisons to probation and beyond including victim-services. Our members include charities, professional associations, think tanks and research bodies. We work to influence policy and practice for a fairer and more effective criminal justice system.

The Board is currently made up of nine people with varied professional and personal experience of the criminal justice system and expertise in advocacy, charity governance, communications, equality and diversity, finance, fundraising, lived experience leadership and research. Our current Chair is due to step down from the Board after six years of service, and four years as Chair.

The Chair is responsible for leading the Board of Trustees, ensuring that it fulfills its responsibilities for the governance of the organisation. The Chair’s role is also to work in partnership with the Director, helping them to achieve the aims of the organisation and to optimise the relationship between the Board and staff. As a micro-charity, we are looking for a ‘hands-on’ Chair who can work closely with the Director to help realise the charity’s ambitions to grow its impact and ensure a sustainable financial future.
