We wish to recruit new voluntary trustees to our Board of Trustees.

for an initial three-year term

Age UK Northamptonshire is an independent and local charity, dedicated to making Northamptonshire a great place in which to grow old.  Age is different for everyone and its challenges and demands are individual.  At Age UK Northamptonshire we are many things to many people – a source of advice, information, companionship and support.  We put the interests of older people living in Northamptonshire at the heart of everything we do, helping them to achieve and maintain their independence and wellbeing.

Age UK Northamptonshire has been supporting older people across Northamptonshire for over 70 years, especially those who are frail, vulnerable or have no family living nearby.  We are at a pivotal stage in our journey.  We are shaping the future of the charity to review and update our services to ensure we meet the changing needs and expectations of older people.  We are also looking to build a network of funding streams to secure the longer term sustainability of the organisation.  By joining our Board of Trustees, you will play a critical role in forming our strategy and the roadmap for the next five years.

We are looking for Trustees who have a range of skills and experience including leadership and senior management in the commercial sector or health sector or have senior legal or financial professional expertise.

Ideally, the successful candidates will be able to demonstrate:

  • A track record of meaningful roles in the private, public or voluntary sector
  • The ability to operate at Board level effectively in a significant organisation.
  • The ability to think creatively and strategically; the skills to challenge current thinking at Board level.
  • The time commitment needed to make a difference to the charity – meeting twice quarterly, attend the annual away day and AGM as well as aligning with one of the services the charity provides.
