The Wales Co-operative Centre is helping to build a better future for Wales.

We are a not-for-profit organisation committed to Co-operative values helping people in Wales improve their lives and livelihoods and delivering both social and economic improvement in local communities.

Our work includes leading the growth of co-operatives, mutuals, social enterprises and employee-owned businesses in Wales – working across all sectors, from small local shops to large manufacturing businesses, doing what it takes to help the social business to thrive. We tackle poverty and help build an inclusive society by supporting people to develop digital and financial skills.

You could be part of that.

Our new Chair will be a strong leader and a strategic thinker with drive and determination, excellent interpersonal skills, high level contacts and a demonstrable commitment to our values and what we do.

In return you’ll have the opportunity to give back by harnessing your knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm for the benefit of communities across Wales and supporting and encouraging the Board, the Executive Team and the staff in delivering meaningful outcomes.

If you are interested in joining our unique and ambitious organisation, you can arrange to speak to our Chief Executive Derek Walker, or current Chair David Jenkins by emailing Derek.Walker@wales.coop to arrange a call back.
