Non-Executive Director Vacancies

Could you be our new Non-Executive Director?

Are you someone who wants to use your IT, HR or Finance skills for greater benefit? Are you looking to gain new skills and experience leading a company as a member of a board? Do you care about inclusion and diversity?

If you’ve answered “yes” we would like to hear from you. We are looking for up to three experienced professionals with a commercial background in IT, HR or Finance. Appointments will always be made on the merit of the application and performance in the selection process – however, we are particularly encouraging applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates who are currently under-represented at senior level.

We can offer you the opportunity to help drive our already successful business. We are one of the largest education catering businesses in the UK with a turnover of c£40m. We provide catering services to 440 schools in Hertfordshire and neighbouring counties and London Boroughs, and we are ambitious to grow the business further. Hertfordshire Catering Limited, HCL, is wholly owned by Hertfordshire County Council, and our dividend is invested to support local communities.

This is an unsalaried position, with reasonable expenses paid and we are looking for a time commitment of one day per month with meetings in Welwyn Garden City.

For an informal discussion, please contact Ian Hamilton, Chief Executive at or telephone on 01707 292500.
