Could you be one of our new Trustees? We’re looking to recruit new members of our Board including a Treasurer and a Secretary.
Our Board of Trustees set the direction of Nottingham Women’s Centre and oversee the finances and service delivery to make sure we keep on track. They review and agree policies and lead on big projects, like the one to find us new premises.
This is a really exciting opportunity to become a key part of one of the oldest Women’s Centres in the country as we continue to develop our vision for the future.
Trustee positions are voluntary, but out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
What it involves
The role of the Board is to be an effective, accountable governing body which provides leadership for Nottingham Women’s Centre’s activities and performance. Trustees are all individually responsible for contributing to our strategic direction.
Board meetings take place monthly at Nottingham Women’s Centre, usually the first Thursday of the month in the early evening. Trustees are also encouraged to attend other events and/or training from time to time.
What we’re looking for
Last year we empowered 2000 women through one to one support and 500 through our courses and activities. 30% of these were Black, Asian or from a minority ethnic group. We’d like our leadership team to better represent the women we serve, so would encourage women from ethnic minority communities to apply to join our Board.
Trustees should have:
- Commitment to the vision, mission and values of Nottingham Women’s Centre
- Understanding of and commitment to equal opportunities.
- Ability to work effectively as part of a team
- An ability to think creatively and strategically
- An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties and responsibilities of being a Trustee
- The time to commit being a Trustee
