Exciting Opportunity: Non-Executive Directors


We are seeking to appoint new Non-Executive Directors to the Board of Expert Citizens CIC.  Our organisation is a new and innovative Community Interest Company.  We are dedicated to ensuring that people with lived experience of multiple needs have an amplified voice as creators of their services.  Multiple needs means combinations of homelessness, mental ill-health, offending, and addiction.

Our suite of products and services are primarily aimed at public, voluntary, and community sector organisations.  We conduct consultancy, research, and evaluation projects designed to provide key insight in to the experience of people using services.  Our main focus is helping organisations to connect with people that may be considered as ‘hard to reach’.  We aim to work with people of lived experience so that they play a leading role in evaluating, improving, designing, and commissioning services.

We are seeking to appoint further Non-Executive Directors to broaden and deepen the knowledge and experience of our Board.  While we are open to a broad range of skills, we would be particularly keen to receive applications from people with senior level experience in the following disciplines:

  • Financial Management

  • Commercial Legal Services

  • Service Procurement and Commissioning

  • Bid Writing

  • Broadcast Media or Journalism

  • Human Resources


Individuals joining the Board will be expected to bring independent judgement to bear on the issues of strategy, policy and performance as well as offering high level advice on the development of the business, our work programme, and other business activities.

For a more detailed briefing and further information on how to apply or merely for an informal discussion, please call Darren Murinas on 01782 450760 or email chair@expertcitizens.org.uk.

These posts are voluntary, but we will pay reasonable travel expenses.

The closing date is 16th June 2017.

We are committed to valuing diversity and encourage applications from all sections of the community.  We value lived experience.
