Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

Actively recruiting for 3-4 Lay Trustees who would ideally come from a background in Fundraising and Donations, Law, HR or from within a Senior Leadership role in the Charity, Industry, Finance or Public Service Sectors. 

What will you be doing?

Trustees will be expected to attend 3-4 meetings per year (one being in-person) and travel and out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.  This is a unique opportunity to offer your expertise and skills to a global membership organisation dedicated to furthering the scientific communities from which our members come from. 

What are we looking for?

We are now actively recruiting for 3-4 Lay Trustees who would ideally come from a background in Fundraising and Donations, Law, HR or from within a Senior Leadership role in the Charity, Industry, Finance or Public Service Sectors. We wish to be able to draw on their unique skill sets to offer a broader range of views in order to take the Society into the future with a revised mid to long term strategy.  

What difference will you make?

Lay members bring an independent viewpoint and scrutiny, which is vital for good governance and can support your personal growth and adding to your CV. 

 The Board of Trustees (RMS Council) are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, developing the organisations aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document and legal and regulatory guidelines.
