The new Trustees will assist the strategic development of a fast growing organisation and will work closely with the main Board of SATEDA to spearhead the development of the new CIC.

What will you be doing?

SATEDA will be creating a new Community Interest Company (CIC) which will be named SATEDA Trading. This will be a trading subsidiary which will be governed by SATEDA Ltd, and will share 1/3 of the SATEDA Ltd main trustee board. 

We are looking for two trustees, with business start up experience, charity retail and/or marketing and advertising background.

This will be an exciting opportunity for someone who enjoys developing brand new initiatives – if you are enthused by making things happen and would like to be involved in a journey from the very beginning, this could be the voluntary role for you.

What are we looking for?

  • The ideal candidate would have a marketing/PR/communications, business start up, entrepreneurship and/or retail backgrounds in either corporate or charity sector contexts or both
  • Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties and responsibilities of being a Trustee
  • Ability to deal with the challenges of long term planning
  • Have an understanding of the charity sector
  • Commitment to the organisation
  • Willingness to devote the necessary time and effort
  • Ability to work as a member of a team
  • Experience of being a trustee is ideal but not essential

What difference will you make?

SATEDA provides a journey of support for survivors of abuse and their children; in addition to delivering preventative programmes for adults and young people enabling them to recognise the signs of abuse and helping them make safe choices in their relationships. Your role will help us with our plans to continue expanding our services to reach more people in Kent that need our services.

What's in it for the volunteer?

This is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in an ambitious new venture and you will play a pivotal role in its development and growth. We offer you a friendly and supportive space for you to thrive and make a difference in people’s lives using your skills and experience
