As a Chair of a technical community, you will be responsible for managing and organising its Leadership Team to deliver value for IOM3 members in terms of technical content, networking, and events within its remit. You will also have a role in representing your technical community in other parts of the Institute and externally. Technical community Leadership Teams meet between two and six times a year, depending on their desire and workload, in the main these meetings are held virtually.

Any member with relevant interests can apply, whether or not they have already been involved with a relevant committee or Leadership Team  or elsewhere within the Institute. Please submit a CV and a statement of what you propose to do as Chair  including what you plan to do to support members and to improve equality, diversity, and inclusion in this role to Anita Horton, [email protected] by 08.00 GMT on 22 April 2024.

We are particularly keen to improve the diversity of our volunteer cadre. We are happy to arrange informal conversations for anyone who wants to find out more about any of the posts and the process.

Don’t meet every requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At IOM3 we are building a diverse and inclusive Institute. If you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the role description, we encourage you to apply anyway. You may just be the right candidate for this or other roles.
