Visitors from building boards in a digital age

The charity above is registered with Reach Volunteering and is looking for a volunteer to fill this opportunity. Reach Volunteering is a community (and registered charity) that connects people, skills and good causes.

KDC - a charity with a strong reputation locally providing support services to people with disabilities. The challenge is to manage the ever-increasing demand for our services whilst improving our long-term sustainability.

What will you be doing?

The Opportunity 

We are currently seeking to increase membership of the Board to improve the mix of knowledge, skills and attributes available to further KDC’s vision and ensure the charity is effectively led.

We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals who have creative or digital backgrounds.

The Time Commitment

Trustees must be willing and able to attend four Board Meetings a year. Wherever possible, these meetings are organised outside of the normal working day. In addition there is an annual ‘business planning day’, which the Trustees set aside to discuss long term strategic issues outside of the board room.

Opportunities to participate in workshops and training and development activities can be taken up at the discretion of the individual Trustee.

What are we looking for?

As a Trustee, you must have:

 

  • Commitment to the human rights of disabled people, and to the mission of disabled people achieving equality.
  • Recognition of the value of diversity.
  •  Strategic vision and ability to think both strategically and creatively.
  •  The ability to listen to/read/assimilate information quickly and effectively.
  •  Good, independent judgement and the ability to contribute constructively to discussions.
  •  An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship.
  •  An ability to act corporately and not in the interests of particular groups.
  •  An ability to work effectively as part of a team and accept collective responsibility and authority.
  •  The ability to engage effectively with a wide variety of people and organisations and the ability to act as an ambassador for KDC.
  •  Commitment to the seven principles of public life: Selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.

 

You will also have demonstrable evidence of achievement in the area of expertise you will bring to the Board.

To be sure we have suitable skills on the Board, we are particularly looking for applicants who are:

  • disabled people who are at the top of their chosen fields;
  • individuals who have high-level corporate or public sector experience;
  • experienced in the area of using and maximising the effectiveness of Digital interface

What difference will you make?

You will be helping KDC maintain their position locally and expand our services nationally to meet the ever changing world of social care support services.

What's in it for the volunteer?

  • Opportunity to share your knowledge and the skills and experience you have developed. 
  • Take part in events, promotions and fundraising activities
  • Chance to engage with and support the community
  • Opportunity to contribute to our valuable work.
