Closing Date

Time Commitment
3 meetings a year

This is an exciting opportunity for two trustees to join The Maypole Project’s Board of Trustees.  The role of a trustee is highly rewarding, its key responsibilities being to:

  • ensure that the charity and its trading subsidiaries are governed effectively
  • work in partnership with the Chief Executive to ensure that the organisation has a clear vision, mission and strategic direction and that the organisation, the trustees and the Chief Executive are focused on achieving these
  • work within the Board of Trustees to ensure future sustainability, in terms of the impact of activities against assessed need, and financial sustainability
  • ensure that the Board of Trustees is monitoring performance through reports provided by the Chief Executive and senior staff
  • take a particular interest or, by agreement, a lead role in any areas of specialist expert knowledge

The successful candidate will demonstrate leadership and management skills, with the ability to take a considered and clear view on strategic issues and vision. The successful candidate will have an understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship.

This is a role that requires strategic vision, willingness to devote the necessary time and effort, strong independent judgement, and the ability to lead and work as a member of a team. As a member of the Board of Trustees, you will carry the duties of the post with tact, diplomacy and confidentiality.

Although we are keen to strengthen our Board in general, we are particularly interested in applications from people who have experience in the following:

  • communications/branding
  • legal experience
  • governance experience
  • charity leadership experience
  • HR experience
