The Management Committee (MC) of Wandsworth Community Transport (WCT) are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the charity and for overseeing and supporting its implementation.  The role of the WCT MC includes the following:

  • Giving clear direction, leadership, guidance, and advice to the WCT staff.
  • Safeguarding the good name and values of WCT and acting as an ambassador for the charity.
  • Providing vision, inspiration, and support to the WCT staff.
  • Ensuring effective and efficient administration of the charity.
  • Ensuring the financial stability of WCT.
  • Appointing staff as needed and monitoring their performance.
  • Using specific skills, knowledge, or experience to help the Board of Trustees to reach sound decisions.

The role would include, reading board papers prior to Board meetings and contributing to or leading discussions in these meetings.  There would also be scope to act as a board champion for a particular area of WCT work, identifying and focusing on key issues and guiding new initiatives.

The WCT MC meet bi-monthly, and the last meeting was in person, in Balham.  Further meetings will be either at ShopMobility, in Sainsbury’s on Garratt Lane or on zoom (in line with whatever the current government guidelines are at the time).  There are currently 7 members of the WCT MC, and the aim is to have up to 10.

We are specifically looking to recruit member of the WCT MC with the following career backgrounds, HR and Legal.

We are also looking for Trustees that can speak additional languages to assist us with our community reach.  Members of the MC report directly to the Managing Director of WCT and the MC Chair.

This is a voluntary charity trustee role that would be brilliant for someone who cares about community, community transport and accessibility for all.

Preference will be given to applicants that live in the Borough of Wandsworth.
