Trustee Vacancy – Admiralty Governor

24th May 2019

Would you like to be involved in helping to run the charity which helps serving and former serving naval and RM ratings and their dependants in times of need and distress? 

RNBT has a vacancy for the Admiralty Governor Trustee.


The governance of the Trust is delivered through the 17-strong Central Committee (CC) – the Board of Trustees whose role is to provide strategic direction to the charity, exercise high level oversight of its operations and provide appropriate support to the executive. One of the trustee positions carries historical title of Admiralty Governor and dates back to an earlier time when the Royal Charter allowed for the Admiralty Board to appoint a retired senior officer onto the Central Committee. This process no longer happens but the trustees decided to retain the title recognising it as part of the RNBT’s history and heritage.  The position requires that the volunteer be a retired senior officer of the Naval Service i.e. a Captain Royal Navy or Colonel Royal Marines or above. RNBT is committed to creating an inclusive environment which encourages diversity of thought in its decision-making processes. To achieve this applications are encouraged from all eligible people.

The current incumbent’s term of office expires 20 August 2019, and the Trust is looking to recruit a successor. If you are interested please contact Rob Bosshardt (Chief Executive) at the RNBT’s Portsmouth-based Head Office (02392 690112).  You can also email a request for an application pack via: rnbt@rnbt.org.uk

The closing date for applications is 3rd July 2019
