Brewster Partners Recruitment Group is working in exclusive partnership with Real Life Options (RLO) to recruit two Non-Executive Directors. Real Life Options is a registered charity in England and Scotland who support people with learning disabilities and autism, some with complex or age-related needs, to have a strong voice and a real choice in the way they live their lives.

RLO have 2,000 colleagues supporting more than 2,000 people in having greater control in their lives and enabling them to truly achieve their potential. RLO's work over the last 25 years has established them as one of the leading care support providers in the UK and they are now looking at the next exciting stage of this journey which will see their services expand to more people than ever before whilst using leading care methodologies and the increasing use of innovative technology to further improve the lives of those they support.


Real Life Options are looking to appoint two new enthusiastic and committed Non-Executive Directors to its Board; individuals with the right skills to help RLO continuously improve performance, strengthen their ability to meet ever changing needs and to further expand services. Non-Executive Directors will help guide Real Life Options and will hold a formal governance position and play a key 'challenge and support' role for Real Life Options' executive, staff and volunteers.

This is a genuinely exciting time for Real Life Options and they are looking to identify individuals that share their commitment to providing ever greater levels of support to those who need it despite the increasingly difficult funding environment that the sector has experienced.


With a proven track record in senior management, applicants will be strategic thinkers, able to contribute effectively to meetings and have the time and skills to commit to this important role. RLO are committed to diversity and inclusion and believe that our differences are what make us stronger. We welcome applications from anyone with the empathy and inspiration to give their time to RLO and we are particularly keen to hear from candidates with skills or experience in one or more of the following:

Finance and Accountancy/Governance
Social Care - community support, children's services or domiciliary careThe role of Non-Executive Director is a voluntary position and as such is unremunerated - reasonable travel and subsistence expenses can be reimbursed. Time commitment is approximately 8 days a year.
