Chair of the Board of Trustees / Directors

We're seeking a new Chair to provide effective leadership and management to the Board of Trustees/Directors, ensuring the Board fulfils its responsibilities of overall governance and strategic direction of the charity. We'd love to hear from you if you are able to:

  • Question, discuss and debate issues to ensure the governance of the charity is robust and the Board makes good decisions about how to fulfil its mission and responsibilities.
  • Have an enquiring mind, and are interested in the challenge of changing demography and how a local charity might influence things in the county of Gloucestershire.
  • Are effective at working as part of a team, but who are confident in voicing their own views even if these are not the majority view.
  • Champion Age UK Gloucestershire and our approach, acting as ambassadors for what we do to a wide range of audiences.
  • Have a connection to Gloucestershire and its many communities – we are a Gloucestershire organisation and seek to be relevant to people from all backgrounds living in all the districts.

Treasurer Vacancy

We’re also seeking a new Treasurer to join our board and help us on our vision to make Gloucestershire the best county in the UK to grow older. You’d be joining a small, but ambitious organsation with aims to challenge negative stereotypes of aging, create positive age-friendly communities, help older people retain a sense of purpose, and offer help and support to older people and their families when they don’t know where to turn. 

We’re looking for someone who can share their wide range of skills and experiences and want to be involved in helping us make the biggest difference possible to the older people of Gloucestershire. You’ll need to be able to commit to attending six board meetings a year, as well as the potential for some further working groups. In return we can offer training, a chance for someone who is maybe looking for their first board experience to get involved, and a supportive environment for anyone who wishes to join us.

If you are interested, or know anyone who could be, please download the information pack below to find out more – including how to apply.
