Being a charitable trustee is a position of responsibility within an organisation and a great way to build managerial level experience as well as giving something back. Many employers offer volunteer days which you could use if deciding to take on a Trustee role with us. All trustees work with the Coordination Crew and stakeholders as appropriate. We ask that you come to your role with an open mind and shape the role to optimise the expertise you bring to the Board.
