Posted by: Jenny Carter on February,5th,2018

The Bridge Renewal Trust is a unique and ambitious charity based in North London.

We are going through exciting times and need to ensure that we are organisationally ready and well positioned to build on the great successes of the last 9 years and deal with future opportunities and challenges.

The ideal candidate for Chair of the Bridge will have the strategic and people skills to work with us and key stakeholders to make the greatest differences to the health and wellbeing of Haringey residents.
