Chair, Coal Authority
The Coal Authority An exciting opportunity to lead our board has just been advertised, which may be of interest to you or your networks. This is a key strategic role at an exciting time for us as we work to support government priorities across the UK around the green recovery. Our new chair will play a pivotal role in making strategic projects – such as our work on mine energy – a reality. Mine energy has the potential to heat a substantial proportion of homes and businesses in the coalfields by using the warm water that sits deep in the country’s abandoned coal mine network – providing the UK with clean energy from the coalfields. They will also help us move forward our exciting new sustainability programme, to further protect Britain’s environment for the future and contribute to the UK’s Net Zero ambitions. As part of our commitment to be a great place to work, we’re looking for someone who’s committed to inclusive leadership of our board – and who’ll help us drive forward our EDI agenda. We’re committed to being a more actively anti-racist organisation and are keen for our leadership to be representative of that. If you, or someone you know, would like to help us make a better future for people and the environment in mining areas please: • see details of the role on the Cabinet Office website here – where you can also sign-up for details of an open webinar • view a video from our current Chair talking about the role here • get in touch with me for a chat in confidence or to find out more We really welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds and experiences, who can help us deliver our vision for the future. Thank you in advance for considering and for sharing this opportunity with your networks and partners. With best wishes, Lisa
