Job Details

We are looking for a number of individuals who can strengthen our board of trustees during a period of growth and transition. 

Role summary

York Steiner School is seeking a number of additional trustees to help broaden our skill sets, increase operational bandwidth and drive best practice in a number of areas. 

We are keen to attract new trustees with experience in areas including:

- finance/accounting
- design/web
- education
- business management
- HR
- fundraising

…but we are very open to discussions with candidates with skills in other areas. 

Person description

As we are a school, candidates with an interest or passion for developing children would be fantastic. 
We have some huge changes ahead of us and outside of the listed skills we would be delighted to hear from any candidate who feels able to be involved and be an active member of the team. 

What difference will you make?

Our school creates amazing educational outcomes for our pupils. 
We deliver an education that is very different to anything the state system can offer. 10 minutes on our website will show how different we are. 

What's in it for the volunteer?

Taking up the role of trustee with our school will be a fun, interesting and rewarding challenge. 
The role can be hard at times. It can tug on your heartstrings. But when you spend time in the school and see what it’s all about, it quickly becomes worth it. 

Time commitment

Mostly outside office hours

Estimate of time needed: 0-3 hours / week

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.
