Job Details

SATEDAs vision is to end domestic abuse, enabling people to end the cycle of domestic abuse with education, support and advocate for victims of domestic abuse and their families. Through one to one support, drop in and one stop shop provision, counselling, freedom programme and follow group programmes, support2court project, a telephone call back system and an employability programme, we strive to offer a service which increases choices and gives victims a voice  – enabling them to live a life free from fear.

The charity are looking for new trustees to join their committed and dynamic board. The new Trustees will assist the strategic development of a fast growing organisation and will work closely with the main Board of SATEDA to spearhead the development of the new CIC.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in an ambitious new venture and you will play a pivotal role in its development and growth. We offer you a friendly and supportive space for you to thrive and make a difference in people’s lives using your skills and experience.

Role summary

SATEDA will be creating a new Community Interest Company (CIC) which will be named SATEDA Trading. This will be a trading subsidiary which will be governed by SATEDA Ltd, and will share 1/3 of the SATEDA Ltd main trustee board. 

We are looking for two trustees, with business start up experience, charity retail and/or marketing and advertising background.

This will be an exciting opportunity for someone who enjoys developing brand new initiatives – if you are enthused by making things happen and would like to be involved in a journey from the very beginning, this could be the voluntary role for you.

Person description

  • The ideal candidate would have a marketing/PR/communications, business start up, entrepreneurship and/or retail backgrounds in either corporate or charity sector contexts or both
  • Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties and responsibilities of being a Trustee

  • Have an understanding of the charity sector
  • Commitment to the organisation
  • Willingness to devote the necessary time and effort
  • Ability to work as a member of a team

Time commitment

The Board meets quarterly at a time agreed by the majority of the Board. The Trustees are also required to attend one annual away day. The meetings will take place predominantly on Teams, with an annual away day taking place at a physical location. There are subcommittees the trustee can join voluntarily – these committees will mostly meet online.

How to apply

Please see the candidate pack for further details about this opportunity. In order to apply please send a CV or similar, (eg LinkedIn Profile) along with a short supporting statement outlining: why you are interested in joining our board, your relevant skills and experience and how you think you could apply your skills and experience to strengthen the board.

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.
