We are seeking a Trustee with a senior-level background in HR or organisational development, with a strong track record of successful change management who can offer guidance and support to the organisation.
This is a great opportunity to strengthen the board and help the organisation remain focused on its mission to support unpaid carers in Wiltshire and Dorset.
About the Role
The Trustee will add capacity and expertise to a vibrant team of a local charity that supports all carers in Wiltshire. The aim of the organisation is to create carer friendly communities where carers are recognised, valued and supported. As a member of the Board of Trustees, you will contribute actively to the Board's role in giving strategic direction and vision to the organisation, its governance, agreeing overall policy, defining goals, agreeing targets and evaluating performance. There will be the opportunity to make a real difference to carers’ lives through supporting the staff team and volunteers as they deliver in all areas of Carer Support Wiltshire.
Trustees will need to demonstrate passion and enthusiasm for the vision, mission and values of the organisation and work well as part of a committed team.
The average time commitment of a Trustee is one day per month. This includes 5 full board meetings per year, and subcommittees, most of which meet quarterly. In the first couple of months, induction will require some additional time. All successful candidates are expected to sit on at least one relevant sub-committee.
As Trustee, you will have a connection to Wiltshire or Dorset and experience or expertise of issues faced by, and support needs of carers. So if you want to support the organisation in its commitment to grow its reach and influence on behalf of carers and to help it manifest its vision to create a caring community for all, apply today!
