Job Details

AgeUK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent exists to safeguard and promote the welfare of all older people in Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent.

The Charity needs volunteer Trustees who can guide and influence it and to enable it to provide benefits for the community. As members of the Board, Trustees use their skills and experience to enable the Charity to set its policies and to function lawfully within its objects and powers.

 

Person specification

We are seeking candidates with skills and experience in any of the following areas:

  • Financial management
  • Income generation
  • Business development and marketing

What’s in it for the volunteer?

Age UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent exists to support some of the most vulnerable of our elders as well as helping others who simply might not have all of the skills and knowledge to make their own way through the later stages of their lives. By working with and for the Charity you will be contributing to the wellbeing of others whilst at the same time giving yourself the satisfaction of being a valuable and valued member of society.

 

Time commitment

There are six scheduled board meetings a year (3 hours’ duration in working hours) plus one all day strategy meeting, usually in Uxbridge. In addition, trustees are encouraged to join a subcommittee or working group to further the work of the board and support the Senior Management Team. Meetings are usually held in Hayes (teleconference facilities available). They are expected to keep up to date with Board and other documents and contribute to email discussions. Occasionally Trustees may be invited to participate in induction sessions, staff and volunteer events, external gatherings with stakeholders.

 

How to apply

Please apply via the Reach Volunteering site.

Potential candidates would be invited to attend for formal interview but would be welcome to make contact beforehand for any further information. Deadline: 10 Mar 2021.

Company

Reach is the leading skills-based volunteering charity in the UK. We are the single biggest source of trustees for the voluntary sector in the UK. Connecting people, skills and good causes is our mission and our passion. 

What we do

We help charities and other non-profits find the skills they need to thrive. Every year hundreds of charities recruit volunteers through our service. These volunteers share their skills as trustees, advisors or mentors, carrying out short term projects or ongoing operational roles.  

Our goal is to create a step change in the quality, range and scale of skills-based volunteering and trusteeship in the UK. We are proud of our growing impact.

Why we do it

Charities can boost their capacity, increase their effectiveness and innovate / find new ways of doing things when volunteers donate their professional skills. Trustees play a crucial role in leading charities and overseeing their work. When the trustee board of a charity has a good mix of skills and professional experience, it can govern more effectively.

By supporting charities to recruit volunteers and trustees with valuable skills, we help charities increase their capacity and strengthen their governance.

How we do it

Our online community inspires people to use their skills for social good. We help organisations to make the most of those skills, to think through their needs and to attract the right person. We believe that communication is important in recruiting trustees and volunteers, so our service encourages dialogue between organisations and individuals. Our service is free to volunteers and to most charities. Find out more about when we charge.  

For volunteers and charities

Whether you are an organisation that wants to find a volunteer with particular skills or a new trustee, or an individual who has a skill you want to offer, you can:

  • join the community as a volunteer or as a charity and create a profile
  • explore roles and profiles
  • make contact and talk through what you're looking for 
  • make a match.

Our guides and resources help volunteers and good causes make the most of skills-based volunteering.

Other organisations and partners

We also work with other organisations including:

  • businesses, supporting their staff into rewarding volunteer or board positions
  • funders, supporting their grantees.
