We are a national charity based in communities across the UK. We believe that everyone can play a role in their community, and make real change happen, so we build projects and programmes to support them, with volunteering at the heart of what we do.

With over 20,000 volunteers supporting over 85,000 people in over 100 community programmes, our volunteers drive real change in society, by helping people overcome social isolation and loneliness, improve their health and wellbeing and gain new skills along the way.

We are looking for a number of trustees who reflect the communities that we work with and that have the shared goals of growing our organisation, supporting even more people and ensuring our volunteers have the best possible experience.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from young people, black and minority ethnic people and those with connections to the communities in which we operate.  This will help ensure our board is increasingly reflective of the communities and people we support, giving them a voice around the boardroom table. Additionally, if you have a financial focus, please do get in touch, as we are also looking for finance people with a deep commitment to make change happen in the communities we serve.

The board meets four times per year. In addition, trustees are expected to sit on one board committee – these also meet four times a year.

If you want to make change in society happen and believe passionately in the power of volunteering to do just that then please contact jamie.scoular@volunteeringmatters.org.uk with your CV and covering letter explaining why you’d be a great trustee.

Closing date: Monday 13 January 2020 – 5pm
