BUSINESS IS DONE BETTER TOGETHER
The Black Country Chamber of Commerce is a friendly and pro-active place to work. A Black Country Chamber career can offer training and development opportunities for ambitious and talented individuals with a passion for helping businesses in the Black Country.
Celebrating its 20th year in 2021, the Black Country Chamber of Commerce is the successor organisation to a legacy spanning across three centuries and remains the leading business support organisation for firms operating across, based within or seeking to do business in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton; providing a range of services and products which make the process of doing that business easier and help members to overcome barriers and limitations to growth as a powerful voice for the business community.
This is a dynamic and exciting time for us following an intensive period of modernisation and restructure in order to become a contemporary and forward-looking organisation with the ambition to be one of the best Chambers of Commerce in the UK and at a time when our members are doing business in a vastly different trading environment following the UK’s exit from the EU, the worst economic downturn on record and the lingering shadow cast by COVID-19.
The Black Country Chamber of Commerce is looking to recruit a new, independent Chair of its board following the end of the previous Chair’s term.
We are seeking a strong leader who will help to develop the skills of the board, ensure we have robust governance processes and who is passionate about the business and work proactively with the Chamber’s Executive Team to deliver its vision and commitments.
The Chair will serve a three-year term to be eligible for re-appointment for one additional term. In addition to chairing the main Board meetings, the Chair has the right to attend the sub-committees.
