Trustee recruitment drive

20th January 2022

Here at Accommodation Concern we are starting the year where we finished the last, incredibly busy! We are having a recruitment drive and we are looking for candidates across the board.

We are currently looking forward to welcoming up to three new trustees to our board. The Trustees are jointly responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, its financial health and developing the organisation’s aims, objectives and goals. This is an opportunity to be part of a regenerating charity with a key role in the town focused on alleviating poverty locally.

We have identified that our organisation will particularly benefit from skills in fundraising, marketing and an understanding of the challenges around the running of a small charity and we are also fully committed to increasing the diversity of our board. We are also keen to appoint a Vice Chair to support with succession planning of the board.

A more diverse board will:

  • understand better the needs of all sections of the community
  • offer a broader range of perspectives about issues
  • be more creative in generating ideas and solutions
  • improve decision making

To this end we want to recruit people with different skills, life experiences and from different backgrounds. We would especially welcome applications from those who have experienced homelessness in any form or are from an ethnic minority background.

We are looking for individuals for the following roles:

  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Fundraising Trustee
  • Marketing Trustee

Think you could be the right person for any of the roles? Why not download our trustee recruitment candidate pack for more information.
