IoD is recruiting for new chair for Cambridgeshire

Could you be the next Chair for the Cambridge IoD?

The Institute of Directors (IoD) is looking to recruit a new chair in Cambridgeshire, as it strengthens its post-pandemic support for directors. Other Ambassador roles are also available with the East of England.

The successful candidate will support local directors to rebuild and thrive following a challenging 18 months. The IoD creates connections, delivers professional development courses and influences policy makers at the highest levels.

Biplab Rakshi, chair of the IoD East of England region, said “These are exciting times for Cambridgeshire directors, who are accelerating out of the pandemic and looking to expand and employ.”

“Cambridgeshire is a leading hub for the science and technology industries. Cambridge itself is one of the country’s top science cities with nearly half of all city workers employed in the sector, from aerospace to architecture and environmental consulting. Research conducted here is leading the nation.

The voluntary position has a three-year term and is open to all members who live or work in Cambridgeshire. Applicants must have a demonstrable track record in board or senior management roles, with established business interests and a strong network of contacts within Cambridgeshire.

IoD members range from start-up entrepreneurs to directors of large SMEs and international companies, as well as the public and third sectors.

The Institute secured vital support for directors during the pandemic, including financial assistance for wage bills and changes to insolvency rules.

Candidates should send their CV and covering letter to by 7th December  2021.
