Trustee for The Fifth Trust

Location: Canturbury

Date Posted: 30/08/2020

Closing Date: 15/10/2020

Job description

The Fifth Trust is a charity that supports adults with learning difficulties.  Based in the Elham Valley, near Canterbury, in Kent, we are looking for new Trustees to join our Board.

Our Trustees play a pivotal role in setting the strategic direction of our organisation and in supporting and monitoring the management of the Trust, ensuring we deliver the best for our students every day.  We are looking for Trustees who are passionate about our vision to provide a safe and fulfilling way of life for our students, helping each individual to achieve their full potential.  Ideally you will have experience in one of the following areas:

  • Adult Social Care / Commissioning / Policy
  • Digital platforms / Information Technology
  • Entrepreneurship / Business acumen
  • Fundraising / Campaigning
  • Governance / Legal
  • Human Resource Management
  • Marketing / Public Relations

Annually we usually have four two-hour Board meetings and one ‘away day’ to formally consider/review our strategy. There are also opportunities to work within smaller groups on areas of development.  If you are an experienced Board member that is great, but if this is your first Trustee role, don’t worry, we will ensure you receive support to enable you to become an effective Board member.  Ultimately, we want our Trustees to enjoy working with us to improve our services and support our students and staff.  This rewarding and stimulating role is voluntary, but travel and subsistence expenses will be paid.

To apply, please send a cover letter, and a brief CV to the Chairperson of the Board, Suzanne O’Brien  You may also post your information to Suzanne at The Fifth Trust, Elham Valley Vineyard, Elham Valley Road, Breach, Barham, Canterbury, CT4 6LN.

If you would like to have an informal and confidential discussion, please contact Nikki Marley, CEO The Fifth Trust,
