Job Description

The Severn Trent Trust Fund is a major charity serving the Midlands. Its income last year was £3.5million, donated by Severn Trent Water to help their customers who are experiencing financial hardship.

The Trust, which has been established for over 21 years, is now looking to recruit a new Trustee who will also take on the role as Chair of Audit & Risk.

The Trust wholly owns a trading subsidiary Auriga Services Ltd which, in addition to managing the Severn Trent Trust Fund, manages the trust funds of Thames Water and United Utilities. It also runs a debt advice and welfare benefits service for various clients including the NHS.

We are looking for a Trustee with the ability to lead the Audit and Risk Committee. Knowledge of charity law and finance is desirable but not essential.

Most of all we are looking for someone with the time and energy to devote to being a responsible Trustee, to ensure good governance and to oversee the running of the trust.

You will need to attend four half day formal meetings per year and take on the Chair role for four Audit and Risk meetings. There may be other ad-hoc meetings.

Your application should be in the form of your CV and an accompanying letter stating why you would like to be a Trustee of this particular trust, and the specific skills that you will bring to the Audit and Risk Committee.

Please apply by 5th January 2019, though early applications are welcome. Interviews will be on 8thand 17th January 2019.
