Sunday Assembly London’s Board plays an instrumental role in ensuring the Charity is sustainable, taking the lead in decision making and strategic direction of the organisation, as laid out in our governing document.
Sunday Assembly is seeking two volunteer Trustee Board members with drive and enthusiasm to assist in the delivery of its charitable aims. You will attend and contribute to our monthly Board meetings, on the second Monday of each month.
You will be able to apply your individual strengths on the Board as well as learn new skills; defining a specialist role, projects and activities where you will take the lead and focus your time.
Our board members are responsible for providing oversight to the operations of the charity in accordance with their obligations as trustees. They are required to review Board papers and play a key role in decision making in relation to:
To achieve this, we request a minimum commitment of 6-8 hours a month. This includes attending meetings and assisting with the effective administration of charity business and, where possible, attending our events.
We’re particularly interested to hear from people from minority and under-represented groups and open to making reasonable adjustments. We are also committed to our meetings being accessible remotely.
Desirable / Nice to have
Now is a challenging time for communities like ours, given the impact of COVID-19 on our operating model. We are therefore looking to recruit additional skills to our Board of trustees to assist navigating these challenging times.
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. Our new trustees will be working 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.
