Become a Trustee

Use your skills and experience to make a vital difference to the lives of local families every day.

Closing date: 17 June 2022.

Our Trustees, who are also Directors of the Company, are all volunteers and act as a corporate entity through the Board of Trustees. The Board oversees all strategic, tactical, and governance aspects of the organisation’s operation and future direction. It delegates most of its functions to five committees, each with their own clearly defined terms of reference.

We currently have vacancies on the Board of Trustees and would welcome applications from those with experience in any area but would be particularly interested to hear from applicants with the following backgrounds:

  • Legal
  • IT
  • Marketing/digital marketing
  • Finance
  • Retail.

The Board of Trustees meets six times a year, and Trustees also usually sit on at least one Committee, the frequency of these meetings can range from monthly to quarterly. In addition there may be the need for occasional input to ad hoc projects for example a governance audit or review of a service.

Should you wish to find out more about this opportunity, without commitment, please contact a member of the Personnel Department. Your details will be passed to one of our current Trustees who will in turn contact you for an informal discussion. You may also wish to view the video from one of our former trustees below.
