Board Trustees for Carers FIRST

Location: Various

Date Posted: 02/07/2019

Closing Date: 24/09/2019

Job Description

Carers FIRST is a growing charity providing tailored information, advice and support to young people and adults who look after a relative or friend who could not manage without their help. We currently serve carers in six areas in the South East, London, East Midlands and East of England. Due to the expansion of our services and a review of our governance arrangements we are now looking to strengthen our board of trustees.

As a member of the board of trustees you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives by helping overall governance, development and monitoring of our strategic goals, and supporting the team and volunteers in the delivery of our programmes.

Applicants will need to demonstrate that they have appropriate skills and experience, enjoy a collegiate working style and support the charity’s mission to support carers. Applicants will evidence that they have the personal skills to contribute successfully at a strategic level as an effective Board member, contributing to discussions and helping the charity think of new and improved ways of doing things.

The charity is especially, but not exclusively, looking for individuals who can offer functional experience in the following areas:

• Carer support or social care

• Fundraising/marketing

• Human Resources

• Legal

• Hard-to-reach communities

Please Note: Trustee positions are not remunerated. Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.

For more information about the role, please request a Job Description and Person Specification.

If you believe you have a valuable contribution to make in our work to address the needs of carers and would like to apply for this role, please email a CV and supporting letter with the names of two referees to recruitment. This is not a competitive recruitment process – as applications are received, they will be considered on merit until the board skills shortfall is met.

Carers FIRST is keen to achieve greater diversity among our Board of Trustees so we welcome applications regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation or age.

If you would like an informal conversation about the role, prior to application, please contact us and we will ask the Chairman or Vice Chairman to contact you.
