CLEAR are seeking new trustees
CLEAR are seeking new trustees who will contribute to the board with their experience in HR, financial management and corporate fundraising.
Sue Brown, Chair of the CLEAR Trustees, said: “We have a great Board of Trustees at CLEAR and in planning for the future we have identified a number of areas where we want to further strengthen our skill base.
We would like to hear from people who would like to help us make a positive difference in preventing, reducing and helping children, young people and adults to heal from emotional trauma, in particular trauma that is linked to domestic abuse and sexual violence. We are looking for people who have skills and experience in HR, financial management and corporate fundraising.
Thanks to funding from the Lloyds Bank Foundation Reach Volunteering are supporting us in this important step forward for the charity.”
The key duties of a charity trustee is to ensure that the organisation complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations. Each trustee should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the board of trustees reach sound decisions. This may involve scrutinising board papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, or other issues in which the trustee has special expertise.
We are fully committed to increasing the diversity of our board. A more diverse board will understand better the needs of all sections of the community, offer a broader range of perspectives about issues, and be more creative in generating ideas and solutions. To this end we want to recruit people with different skills, life experiences and from different backgrounds. We would especially welcome applications from male candidates, BAME communities and young trustees who are all under-represented on our board.
Applications should be made via Reach Volunteering in the first instance.
In order to submit an application, please provide an up to date CV and a cover letter, explaining why you are interested in joining CLEAR’s board of trustees, how your skills and experience would add value to the organisation and any other relevant details.
