Job Title:

Wednesday, 10 November, 2021 - 09:00

The Charity Service has been managing charitable funds and making grants to voluntary organisations for over 20 years. Our mission is to support philanthropists to give with ease and confidence. We do this by providing a donor-advised fund account management service. We will also be introducing an enhanced range of services in 2022, including a philanthropy advice service.

We are seeking to appoint two new trustees to our board. Our board currently comprises seven trustees, one of whom will be standing down in November. Trustees are responsible for the governance of our organisation. They play an influential role in shaping the charity’s strategic direction and monitoring and evaluating organisational performance.

We are looking for new trustees whose skills and experience will broaden the diversity of our board. In particular, we would welcome applications from individuals who can make a contribution in at least one of the following areas:

  • Marketing and business development: to advise on the development of the charity’s marketing strategy.
  • Strategic communications and public relations: to advise on how the charity communicates its messages to key audiences, including the use of social media.

The board meets four times a year in Manchester (although we are currently holding meetings online). Between meetings, trustees may be asked to provide advice and support to the charity’s staff, especially on matters relating to their areas of expertise, although the level of time involved is unlikely to be onerous.

We are committed to attracting and recruiting excellent and diverse trustees because it’s important that our board reflect the communities we serve. Whatever your background, we will make it easy to join, participate and share your expertise in your role as a trustee. We welcome applications from individuals without prior trustee experience.

The role is voluntary but reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
