English Heritage (EH) cares for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places. Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year.

Our Non-Executive Trustees and Independent Committee Members bring valuable expertise and strategic insight to help our Executive realise the untapped potential for the organisation.

As we continue to progress through this important chapter of transformational change, we're seeking an exceptionally high-calibre Independent Member of our Audit and Risk Committee with significant experience of technical accounting at a senior level, auditing, and understanding of the finances and risks associated with major capital projects. In addition, it would be highly beneficial if the successful candidate had experience of the governance and risk-management associated with the following areas of priority investment for English Heritage:

  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Environmental Sustainability.

The Audit and Risk Committee meets three times per year for approximately three hours and the commitment involves attendance and active contribution at these meetings as well as adequate preparation and reading time. A sub-group of the Committee also meets annually to consider the draft annual budget. A willingness to engage, on an ad-hoc basis, with Executive Directors of the Charity, e.g. Chief Financial Officer, Chief Executive, and other Committee Members, is expected.

This post is un-remunerated, but all reasonable travel expenses are paid.

If you are excited by this opportunity and have the experience required to help us become a thriving, independent charity, then we would be delighted to hear from you. Please see the attached pack for details of how to apply and whom to contact for an informal discussion.
