Action in Rural Sussex seeks new Trustees – law experience sought

Closing Date
27 May 2022
Lewes, BN7 2PE
Time Commitment
Attendance at 8 meetings a year required

As some of our Trustees are retiring, Action in rural Sussex (AirS) is seeking talented individual(s) to join our Board.

AirS is an independent charity that exists for all people living in the rural areas of Sussex but especially those who are at risk of isolation and/or disadvantage, and for whom rural life brings an additional challenge and cost to their daily lives.

Established in 1931, we are very proud of the work that we have done to build stronger and more inclusive communities and to help people overcome the challenges caused by their rural location.  Members of the Board are appointed on a voluntary basis (but expenses can be reimbursed) and reflect a variety of professional backgrounds but all care deeply about making a positive difference in rural communities.

What are we looking for?

We are particularly looking for people with experience in some/all of the following areas:

  • Accountancy and Finance
  • Fund Raising
  • Rural Matters
  • Affordable Housing and Estate Management
  • Partnership Working
  • Marketing
  • Law
  • HR

We are also looking for people who can work as part of a team, can challenge and be challenged to get to the best answer and will support other Board members and the AirS team to deliver on the purpose and objectives of AirS.

What difference will you make?

As part of our board you will support and shape our work and strategic direction, as well as help us achieve our purpose to improve the lives of all those living in rural Sussex.

Members of the Board are expected to participate in the main Board as well as specific sub-committees and therefore the minimum commitment is likely to be at least eight meetings per year but we welcome people that can contribute more time than this.

A full induction and training where necessary are offered.

If you are interested in making a difference and would like further information, please reach out – we would love to talk to you.
