Ever thought of being a Charity Trustee?
Trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time, to charities who require assistance and guidance at a strategic level. Being a Trustee is a vital role in the voluntary sector and can be very rewarding, as well as offering personal and professional development.
As a Trustee you have a say in shaping the strategic direction of a charity and inform charity employees on best practice according to your specific skill-set. Credible Trustees offer specialist knowledge and experience that complements the other Trustees within the team.
Charities often look for skills in specialist areas to help the running of the charity, these include:
- Human Resources
Government guidelines for Charity Trustees say:
"Trustees have independent control over, and legal responsibility for, a charity's management and administration. They play a very important role, almost always unpaid, in a sector that contributes significantly to the character and wellbeing of the country." (UK Government)*
If you want to be part of a team where you have the opportunity to use your skills and experience, learn from others, all whilst working for a common purpose, being a Trustee could be a great opportunity for you.
