We are a relatively new organisation that is looking for dedicated trustees that will influence and support the direction of the organisation.

As a womens' organisation we will be delighted to have a female trustee in board who will be heavily involved in strategically supporting the organisation going  forward. She will also help market the charity and help in keeping it financially  viable with fundraising and grant funding ideas as well further our organisation's aim to empower women in all respects.

She will ideally have some experience in fundraising, grantfunding and be able to make sound grant proposals and assist in sourcing financial resources for the betterment of the organisation.  She will also be able to represent our organisation to potential investors when the time arises.

She will also be involved in the professional maintenance of a favourable public image for the  organization, maybe not solely but certainly assist in the process. A knowledge of campaigning and commissioning will be desirable but not necessarily essential
