*Please note this opportunity is now closed to further applications. Should you be interested in similar roles and wish to have an exploratory discussion, please contact Douglas Adam at [email protected].


Amma Birth Companions (Amma) is a Glasgow charity that provides information, care, and advocacy to those who face barriers to support during pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood. Their services include birth and postnatal companionship, peer support, and education.

Amma believes that everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, language, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, or socioeconomic circumstances, should be supported to birth and parent with confidence.

Having recently recruited a new Chief Executive, they are now looking to identify a new Chair of the Board who will provide inclusive leadership to the Board of Trustees as well as supporting and, where appropriate, challenging the Chief Executive to ensure the achievement of agreed strategic priorities and objectives. Overseeing the process to develop and embed a new strategic vision for the charity, you will develop a more robust approach to governance, ultimately ensuring the long-term sustainability of the charity. This includes the ongoing evolution of our fundraising strategy and continued diversification of revenue streams to support our future growth.

With direct experience of charity governance having worked with or as part of a Board of Trustees, ideally at Chair level, the successful candidate will have demonstrable interpersonal and relationship-building abilities and a strong commitment to the aims and objectives of Amma. With strong leadership skills and the ability to motivate staff and volunteers alike, you will bring a clear understanding of managing the performance and effectiveness of an organisation to ensure it meets its operational, business, and financial goals, coupled with significant experience of building effective networks, relationships, and partnerships to further organisational objectives.

If you share our ambition and aspiration that no-one should face their pregnancy or birth alone, please review the role profile below or contact Douglas Adam at Livingston James, the retained recruitment partner via [email protected].
