Job description

Milestones Trust - up to Four Trustees

Milestones Trust is a charitable organisation with a 36-year history of offering safe, person-centred support to people with learning disabilities and enduring mental health needs.

A lot has changed since we began supporting people; but we still need talented and committed people on our Trustee Board to shape the organisation’s direction, as we develop and implement our new strategy.

We are a values led organisation running services throughout Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset, which support around 750 people in specialist residential, nursing and supported living services, along with respite services, day opportunities groups and community projects.

Owing to the retirement of several longstanding members, the Board seeks to recruit four new trustees to provide guidance to the Executive Team and hold them to account.

On this occasion, we are especially interested in hearing from candidates with a background of working in the property sector and from people with lived experience of using social care. Those with commercial experience and financial knowledge are also welcome.  We are always keen to extend the diversity of our Board and particularly welcome applications from under represented groups.   Full training will be given to all new Trustees.

The Board meets eight to 10 times a year. In addition, Trustees can expect to join one or more of the standing committees – Finance & Resources, Support and Development, Governance and Risk – and participate in ad hoc committees that take on specific and less frequent tasks. You will also visit some of our services, and participate in Trust events.  In general, you should be able to commit 10 to 15 days to board work.

The full brief can be downloaded from the Trustees Unlimited Website where you will be able to apply by submitting your CV/application, alongiside a covering letter.
