Due to a number of Trustees stepping down this year, we will shortly begin looking for new team members to join the Board of Directors that runs the charity.
We are looking for a new Treasurer and a new Company Secretary, as well as other Trustees (Directors). We are particularly keen to increase the diversity of the charity management – in terms of ethnicity and other protected characteristics, but also in terms of life experience and ways of looking at the world.
If you have never considered yourself a manager or a director, fear not, there is plenty of help and support on hand. As a community based charity serving thousands of families needing emergency food aid, our Trustees must understand our clients and the challenges they face.
Perhaps you already volunteer with us or support us as a fundraiser, perhaps you have used a foodbank previously yourself or have direct experience of living on benefits, interacting with the immigration system or family services.
Or perhaps you can offer professional skills and experience that would benefit the charity through fundraising, networking, media and communications.
A role description will be published shortly, and you can register your interest by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
