About the role

It is an exciting time to join our Board as we are executing our current strategy and next year will be creating our next strategic plan. We appointed a number of new Trustees to the Board over the last number of years and we are now looking to grow our Board in terms of skill sets. We are looking for a mix of people, people who have been Trustees before and those who are new to the role.

In particular, we are looking to appoint:

  • finance professional, we have appointed a new Finance Director, and we are looking for a new Trustee with finance expertise who can join our Treasurer on the Finance Committee. This person could come from a variety of sectors with experience in accountancy, financial strategy, audit and risk.
  • A professional with experience of working with older people and/or health or social care. It could be someone who has delivered services in the NHS, private or charitable sectors. We would welcome anyone with experience of dementia.
  • In addition to this, we are looking for a professional with expertise and/or an understanding of fundraising; this could be in philanthropy, development, major donors, and/or events.

We are open to other skill sets and experiences as we look to grow and develop our Board. In particular, we are keen to attract those with a background in HR/people management for our HR Committee.

We are committed to ensuring our Board Members have a connection and understanding of the Borough.

We are keen that our Board represents the diversity of our borough and we encourage applications from people from diverse backgrounds and experiences including LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities and people from global majority backgrounds.

We are a values-driven charity and older people are at the heart of everything we do in our community, so we are looking for someone who is committed and dedicated to supporting older people and is passionate about our Borough.

We would welcome our new Trustees throughout the year to attend our events and services for our older people, such as walking football or events such as our Valentine’s celebration which attracts over 400 older people.
