Our people are full of passion. Are you? Do you have a passion for fundraising?
You don’t have to have experience as a Trustee to join us. For us, believing in our purpose to do good is the most important thing. Just bring your positive energy – we’ll support you with everything else from day one.
We want our Board of Trustees to reflect the communities we support
It’s how we can help our community in the best way possible – by 100% reflecting them and understanding their needs.
Which is why we welcome applications from people who:
•are under 40 years old
•are people of colour
•have either a physical or less visible disability
•have experience living in a low-income household
Our Trustees get together five times a year (once every quarter for Board meetings and for a strategy day in October) as well as spending time before the meeting reading the Board papers and preparing for the meeting, a commitment of 50-70 hours a year of their time.
They’re responsible for providing strategic direction and making key decisions to ensure we’re delivering on our objectives.
• they serve on our three Committees:
o finance audit and risk (quarterly)
o service development (twice yearly)
o renumeration and nominations (quarterly)
• they might advise on particular subjects related to their area of interest or expertise
• they are appointed for a three-year term, and can serve four terms maximum (two stints of two terms each, separated by at least 12 months) - if their circumstances change they can resign mid-term
• although this role is unpaid, they can receive money for expenses like childcare costs or travel for meetings
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
