Trustee 2018 (Voluntary Role)
The UNA-UK Board is searching for trustees who can help the charity improve its ability to respond to the challenging funding environment in an increasingly unpredictable global context. Trustees are looking to ensure that the Board has the skills, experience, contacts and diversity needed to sustain UNA-UK.
The Trustee will work in partnership with the Chair, Executive Director and UNA-UK’s small, dynamic team to help achieve the aims of the charity. At present, the Board is particularly keen to appoint trustees who can provide guidance and, where appropriate, hands on support in one or more of the following areas:
Fundraising, in particular corporate, government or philanthropic – our top priority
Media/PR to reach wider audiences and maximise UNA-UK’s global impact
Legal/HR/finance to ensure best practice and good governance
All trustees are also tasked with promoting and strengthening the reputation and impact of UNA-UK. They are expected to represent the charity externally, to raise our profile and help build relationships with key stakeholders. Trustees also provide strategic direction for the charity and ensure that appropriate financial and legal checks and balances are in place.
This is a voluntary (unremunerated) position. The initial term of appointment will be three years, with the possibility of reappointment for up to one further term of three years.
UNA-UK strongly encourages candidates from all backgrounds to apply. At present, the Board is particularly keen to receive applications from women and ethnic minorities.
