ASCEND’S VISION AND WHAT WE DO

Trustee 

ASCEND is seeking to appoint a Trustee to help lead the charity by setting strategy and assuring the quality and focus of the services we provide.  You will share ASCEND’s values, our commitment to social justice and our empathetic and person-centred approach to our clients.

As Trustee you will join a group of dedicated colleagues on the Trustee Board and ASCEND Management.  You will contribute to Board discussions including setting policy, budgets and goals, evaluating performance, keeping abreast of and meeting our legal, governance and quality standards.

We are seeking people of good judgement and strategic vision who can contribute positively to the Board’s discussions.  We particularly welcome applications from people with experience of delivering education or training programmes, experience of fund-raising, marketing communication or expertise in legal or human resources issues.

The Board meets monthly and Trustees should be able to commit themselves to the work of the Board for at least five hours a month, including time for training and engaging with ASCEND staff.
