At Umbrella we enable children and young adults to realise their full potential in an integrated society. We are looking for skilled and supportive people to join our Board of Trustees.
Umbrella needs Trustees who can bring the experience, insights and passion to help us realise our potential and build a sustainable future. We want people who can bring creative and different ideas to help us continue to develop, including a new building project.
We are looking to extend our strong Board of Trustees, in the following areas, though we welcome applications from all sectors:
Additionally, our Trustees must:
The Trustee roles are voluntary and unremunerated.
Duration: 3 Year term, potential to extend by 3 years. Location: Mackworth, Derby
Time Commitment: Bi-monthly board meetings and attendance at board away days (maximum one day per year). There is an expectation that Trustees will also contribute and play an active role in Board sub groups, and other relevant events where they will act as ambassadors of Umbrella.
We welcome expressions of interest in the form of a one A4 page outline of why you want to join Umbrella and the skills and experience which you would bring to the board. Applications and requests for further information, should be sent via the Reach Volunteering platform.
Closing Date: 30 March 2020
We want our Trustees to be representative of diverse communities so we actively encourage applications from ethnic minorities, disabled people and anyone who identifies as part of a community that is under-represented in the charity.
Trustees are a fundamental part of Umbrella, without their support and guidance, Umbrella wouldn't be able to continue the high standards of services.
Being a Trustee for Umbrella is really rewarding. You not only work closely with the other board members, you work directly with the young people on many occasions.
