Job description

Looking for an exciting Trustee role where you can make a real difference?

At Talkback we enable everyone with autism or a learning disability to lead the fulfilling lives that they want and to actively contribute to their local community.

Our organisation began 22 years ago to provide people with a learning disability with a voice that was listened to.  Now we are a highly successful organisation that delivers a wide range of projects, diversifying and developing over the years in response to the changing needs of people with a learning disability as well as the requirements of local and national government and legislation. We work primarily across Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Reading.

Talkback has adapted and survived through difficult financial times and through the current pandemic, ensuring that the people we work with continue to be supported using new and innovative ways to offer services.

We are now looking for new trustees from a business and a social care background with skills in risk management, marketing and/or technology.  Board meetings are held  4 times per year with an additional session to review our strategy. Most Board members will also be members of one of our sub-committees and all Board members are invited to attend activities like our drama productions or sports sessions. You will be offered a full Induction into the organisation and appropriate training.

If you are interested in this voluntary role, please contact Monica Vicol by following the 'Apply here' button.
