Head of Governance

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) is the trade union and professional membership organisation for the UK’s 58,000 Chartered Physiotherapists, support workers and students and one of the largest representative bodies in healthcare.

Having completed and implemented a major governance review in 2018, it is now time to take the transformational impact good governance can have on an organisation to a new level. The CSP is seriously upping its game in terms of its operating model by 2023! As the Head of Governance you would be fundamental in developing a new operating model to make us future proof, with fit for purpose structures, processes and ways of working. 

You will be working directly to the CEO and lead and manage a small governance team to deliver a high quality and comprehensive governance support service. You will also have a significant corporate role with the other Assistant Directors and Directors to transform the CSP to ensure we provide the very best service to our members and exert even greater influence going forward.

As an expert in your field, you will be degree educated, or have equivalent experience. Although a recognised, relevant qualification in corporate governance is desirable, more important is your proven track record of leading change in this field and in a similar organisation. You will be a confident leader who leads by example and has experience of managing teams, working in collaboration with others and who has excellent communication skills.

Our Values

At the CSP our goal is to create a culture which is characterised by innovation, respect, encouragement, passion and teamwork.  We all strive for continuous improvement and to be the best at everything we do.  We aspire to work in a way that embodies our values of learning, courage, inclusive and integrity.  Our shared values are part of our organisational DNA and reflect the expectations we have of ourselves and others. They guide what we do and how we do it to have the greatest impact for our members.  Please click here for further information.
