London rough sleeper charity ‘The Simon Community’ seeks new Trustee with legal skills
We support the hardest to reach rough sleepers on London’s streets.
Our commitment to support those people for who no other adequate provision exists depends on do-ers like you, with drive, energy and skills.
We seek the Simon Community ethos and approach to be reflected in not only our services but also our strategy, leadership and Board of Trustees.
We aim to maintain a balanced set of experience and expertise on the Board of Trustees in order to deliver strong and effective governance, strategic development and decision making. To this end the Simon Community is currently looking for new members of the Board of Trustees.
New trustees will preferable offer skills in, and experience of, one or more of the following areas the Simon Community would benefit from:
- Therapeutic communities
- PR and Marketing
- Property development / acquisition
If you are interested in becoming a Simon Community trustee but offer expertise in other fields, please still consider to submit an application.
The Board currently meets six times per year at a Central London location as well as at the Community Meeting and the Annual General Meeting, with the trustee role also requiring some hands-on involvement at this stage of our development. Trustees need to understand our ethos and be willing to learn about therapeutic communities. We ask new Board members to familiarise themselves with the community and our approach by visiting or helping out with some of our services as part of the trustee recruitment and induction process.
