Age UK Mid Mersey is governed by a Board of Trustees who generously volunteer their time and commitment to serving the Charity. We benefit greatly from their expertise and knowledge, drawn from varied career history in public and private sectors as well as invaluable life experience.

Our Trustees ensure that there is a clear strategy, that the charity is sustainable for the future and that decisions are made in the interest of our beneficiaries. They oversee governance and provide strategic leadership to the organisation.

The Board of Trustees work closely with the CEO and Senior Management Team, combining their skills and expertise to deliver the very best services for older people across St Helens, Halton, Knowsley and Warrington.

Why become an Age UK Mid Mersey trustee?

As a trustee, you’ll help set our direction and guide a charity that is focused on helping those who need it most. You’ll join a valued Board of Trustees with a huge amount of professional and personal experience in public, private and third sector organisations. You’ll be warmly welcomed, supported to develop your skills and participate fully in the governance of our charity and all that entails.

 

We value and celebrate the diversity that exists among our workforce and are committed to creating a working environment in which everyone can take full part. We believe our organisation will be a better, more creative and innovative place to work as a result of managing our people in a way that gets the best from their diversity; values their different perspectives and individual backgrounds; and integrates fairness and equity into every aspect of our employment practices.

 

Who are we looking for?

Regardless of your professional experience, we would love to hear from you. You don’t need to have any previous experience as a trustee. 

 

Empathy towards the challenges of ageing would be an advantage, but not essential… passion, fairness and a genuine commitment to helping older people in our community are far more attractive to us.

 

We are looking for skilled people of any age with a range of professional and life experience and it would be an added bonus if you:

 

  • Have professional experience in legal, finance, health, local government, social care, HR, marketing or fundraising.

  • Have experience working in governance

  • Have experience working or volunteering with older people

  • Qualify as a ‘young trustee’ (aged 18-35)

 

What is the time commitment?

You will need to commit to attend bi-monthly Board meetings and sub-committee meetings, our Annual General Meeting and planning day, as well as contributing to projects and events throughout the year.
