SummaryAre you searching for a role where you can give back to the community using your life experience and business skills?
We are looking for people to join us with a view to progressing to full Trusteeships in due course. People from all backgrounds are welcome to apply.
The roles may suit someone who is retired, semi-retired or who works flexible hours. You will be community-oriented and have a positive/can-do attitude. You will live in Hertfordshire which is the charity’s area of operation.
If you have worked for a large business or run your own business, then many of the skills you have acquired will also be valuable to a charity such as ours. We are particularly looking for people with expertise in the following areas:-
· HR and staff workplace policies
· Governance – operating policies, risk assessment, business continuity, compliance with Charity Commission, HSE etc.
· Social Media
· Fundraising and events
· IT and data management
What you will gain
You will be volunteering with a well-established countywide registered charity which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2022. And you will be joining a small but friendly Board of Trustees. You will have the opportunity to meet new people and gain satisfaction from helping to run the charity in an efficient and effective way, putting forward your ideas for future development. You will be able to take part in fundraising events and attend awareness raising events across the county. Having an existing knowledge of domestic abuse is not important as this can be learned and, indeed, training will be given.
We anticipate the role necessitating 3-5 hours per week. In addition, our Board meetings are held 5 times a year. As well as contributing to the overall governance of the Helpline we will ask you to lead on one work area for the Board matched to your expertise and experience. We do ask for a minimum 3 year commitment and a DBS check will be undertaken. You won’t be required to liaise with victims/survivors of domestic abuse.
