Do you want to make a difference in your community and keep up to date about issues affecting older people?

Age UK Wiltshire is looking for dynamic people with a passion for supporting older people and strong strategic thinking skills to join our Board of Trustees. 

 

We are looking for people with strategic vision, independent judgement, a passion for helping older people; and a willingness to give time and commitment to represent our organisation and its values.

We are particularly interested to hear from people with skills and experience in the following:

• Commercial and business awareness
• Fundraising
• Marketing and Campaigns

We are also underrepresented in the Swindon area and would be keen to hear from applicants with connections in the Swindon Borough Council area.

As a Trustee you will provide a strategic lead and oversight for the direction of Age UK Wiltshire, this is not an operational role.
All reasonable expenses are reimbursed and training is provided.

Trustees are expected to:

• attend up to six meetings a year including Board meetings and an annual general meeting;
• get involved in support work including fixed term projects;
• contribute advice and support to the Chief Executive Officer on an ad hoc basis; and
• represent us at events.

The post of Trustee is unpaid but will provide you with a great deal of experience and satisfaction. It’s a chance to really understand the issues affecting older people today and be part of a dedicated team that is helping to make a difference in their lives.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Daphne Pullen, Chair of Trustees at daphne.pullen@ageukwiltshire.org.uk for further information.
