Charity Trustee

Approx 1 day per month; voluntary

We are currently looking to add a new member to our Board of Trustees, broadening our skill set so that we can provide the Trust with the leadership it needs.

At this time, we are seeking candidates who have a background in Finance and/or Accountancy.

As a member of our Board of Charity Trustees, your focus will be to assist us strategically, applying your specific skills and experience to ensure we meet all our commitments. It would be helpful if you have previous Board experience although this is not essential. We respect that your time will be limited, and so we want to be clear about our expectations. If you can commit around a day per month, this will more than meet our current requirements.

If you feel you can assist the Board to take forward its exciting programme, we look forward to hearing from you. We are committed to building a diverse Board, so we welcome applications from all sectors of society, regardless of ethnicity, age, gender, disability or religious persuasion.
