We are 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. 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

Skills

 Fundraising/income-generation knowledge OR  Marketing and PR/Communications expertise.  Commitment to Accommodation Concern’s objects, aims and values and willingness to devote time to carry out responsibilities.  Strategic and forward looking vision in relation to the charity’s objects and aims.  Excellent networking skills, influencing and communication skills.  Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of Trusteeship and adhering to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
