The RSA‘s search for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees is announced


  • Arts and culture

Today we launch our search for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees in succession to Tim Eyles OBE, whose second term in the role will conclude this year in line with charity byelaws.

The Chair of the RSA provides leadership to our outstanding Board of Trustees and our Chief Executive, Andy Haldane. The Chair is also responsible for ensuring the good governance of the organisation and keeping a detailed focus on budgeting, risk management, and legal compliance.

In 2024, we celebrate 270 incredible years at the forefront of social change, and our search for a new Chair of Trustees comes at a very exciting time as our social impact mission continues to gain momentum.

Over the course of our history, we have been at the centre of landmark innovations, drawing on our role as a convener and innovator to make lasting impact to society. This has included: initiating The Great Exhibition of 1851, projects to abolish child labour, the world-famous Blue Plaque Scheme, and placing public art on Trafalgar Square’s iconic Fourth Plinth. The RSA remains at the heart of public discussion, placing people, places and planet centrally in its work through the Design for Life mission to create a world where everyone can fulfil their potential and contribute to more resilient, rebalanced and regenerative futures.

We are looking for a new Chair who will support the RSA as we look to the future, build on the successes of our mission and grow our global network of changemakers represented by our international fellowship community.

We welcome applications from candidates with complex leadership experience and a passion for the arts and social action. Candidates will have experience working at the highest level of public or commercial life and an understanding of the key challenges and opportunities facing the not-for-profit sector.
