Are you interested in becoming a Trustee of our vibrant local charity?
The Trustee Opportunity
PiP’s recent success has been underpinned by strong leadership, with the development of a skilled management team over the last few years, and by sound governance and oversight from the Board of Trustees.
Our Board comprises 6 committed Trustees including the Chair. They have a mix of backgrounds, across the voluntary and private sector; but we are keen to supplement the Board with appropriate skills and experience.
A passion for the sector and for improving the lives of young adults with learning difficulties is the overriding qualification. Experience of operating at Board level or as a Trustee is obviously helpful as is any specific expertise or experience in relevant fields – finance, project management, social care and the learning disability sector, fundraising, marketing and communications. We expect all our Trustees to be actively involved in our fundraising efforts and to use their networks, contacts and enthusiasm to generate support and/or funds for PiP.
If you want to contribute to a vibrant local charity, have relevant skills and experience, together with strategic vision and a creative approach, and can commit up to 10 days a year, we would like to hear from you.
