Job description

Are you concerned by the rise in homelessness in our towns and cities? ​

Do you want to support a charity that helps others with drug and alcohol misuse? ​

We are currently looking for enthusiastic Trustee volunteers to bring their experience and knowledge to our board of trustees.  The board is our governing body, providing strategy and direction and ensuring we’re run according to the rules.​

Why become a Trustee? ​

In a recent survey it was reported that over eight in ten of those performing Trustee roles said that it made them happier and over one in five said that they got a promotion as a result of their service. ​

Why not grab some happiness and success and be a Trustee for SMART CJS!​

Set up in 1997, SMART CJS is a vibrant charity specialising in supporting those who are homeless or need help with drugs and alcohol misuse. We operate in Bedford, Milton Keynes, Oxford and Wokingham and are looking for two new Trustees to help us develop our strategy for the next 5 years for a sustainable future!​

We operate drugs and alcohol support services in Oxford and Wokingham. Our homeless services are in Bedford and Milton Keynes. ​

Applications are invited from individuals who are looking to take on a Trustee role and are particularly interested in supporting the organisation proactively.

  • Occasions to meet a diverse range of people and give back to your local community and society.

There is an expectation that trustees will wish to become actively involved in the charity which requires attendance at fundraising and other key events. ​

Trustees will be appointed for an initial period of 3 years and eligible to serve for one further term.​
