We’re looking for new Trustees

UPDATE: We’ve now closed this recruitment (as of 21st February 2022). Thank you to everyone who helped us spread the word. 

We’re looking for 3 new volunteer Trustees to join our governing Board of Trustees.

Our Trustees find being a member of the board a rewarding experience where they get the opportunity to contribute to, shape the direction of, and oversee the governance of a long established and dynamic organisation. It’s an opportunity to give back to Battersea and the wider Wandsworth communities by using their skills and experience in another setting. They are a committed and passionate group. This is reflected in their meetings being engaging and serious fun.

We’d very much like to hear from you if you’re interested in joining us at this exciting time in our history.

We have identified a particular need to recruit Trustees with experience of:

  • Community service – specific understanding of issues such as disability, discrimination, elders, refugees, adult social care, to complement and challenge the plentiful expertise within the staff.
  • Fundraising – from the perspective of either charitable trusts or high net worth individuals or both, to help maximise our chances of success in fundraising activities.
  • Lived experience – Ensuring the perspective of volunteers, members and alumni is represented in decision making. The Trustees have agreed to seek potential Trustees with this background from within its existing networks.

Although the Board is very effective, it lacks significant diversity, which diminishes its capacity to be even more effective. The Trustees would therefore particularly welcome interest from those from UKME/Global Majority Heritage backgrounds, younger people and people with disabilities, all of which are under-represented on the Board.
