We are seeking additional trustees to help shape the future of the organisation through a period of significant change, growth and development. We are looking for skilled and committed individuals to join the unpaid Board of Trustees. The Board is collectively responsible for the governance and strategic direction of BEACON. Successful applicants will be expected to take an active role in ensuring the organisation’s work towards its key missions, objectives and goals.
We are especially interested in applicants with board-level experience and expertise in one or more of the following: fundraising, legal issues, equal opportunities, HR, marketing, strategic planning, issues facing asylum seekers and campaigning.
Trustees are asked to commit an average of 1- 2 days each month to the organisation, which will include attending board meetings, possibly sub groups and occasional events. They will be expected to remain well informed about the organisation and its activities and take a personal interest in and collective responsibility for its development and sustainability.
Ideally new board members will have previous experience in a similar role and some understanding of the voluntary sector and small charities.
How to apply
Interested candidates are asked to make initial contact with Katy Armistead (Team Leader) firstname.lastname@example.org 01274 727 525 for more information. Applicants will then be asked to send the Chair of BEACON: a CV, details of two references and a short supporting statement setting out why they want to become a Trustee of BEACON; what skills and qualities they would bring to the Board; why they are interested in the position and what qualities make them a suitable candidate. Applications will be reviewed by the board of trustees at Trustee meetings.
