Job Details

Ashford Place

Ashford Place provides support services to single homeless people as well as vulnerable people in our local community. Moving away from a single issue agency, the charity is keen to work with its local community and statutory partners to improve the lives of vulnerable people in Brent.

We provide our services from our wholly owned Community Resource Centre. We are spearheading a significant change in the way support services are designed and delivered with an emphasis on personal responsibility, community cohesion and long term positive impact on individuals/communities. We have achieved Investors in People, Matrix and Customer 1st quality standard awards.

 

What will you be doing?

As a Trustee with HR experience we are looking for someone to 

  • Ensure highest standards of governance in policies and practice related to employee relations, recruitment, retention, reward and recognition as well as staff and trustee development.
  • Develop an employee and Volunteer wellbeing strategy
  • Assessing risks and measuring the impact of HR interventions in the light of changing legal requirements and best practice.
  • Implementing company policies and practices in the context of furthering charitable objectives and evaluating how they impact beneficiaries and staff.
  • Ensuring long-term strategic oversight of the organisation’s personnel and staffing requirements in relation to the overarching goals of the charity

 

What are we looking for?

We need someone  with

  • the kind of HR background that helps us create a healthy and productive staff team.
  • who has a good track record of success at an operational and strategic level.
  • An understanding of the UK charity sector, good governance, Charity Commission, relevant legislations and statutory requirements

  • Working effectively as a Trustee team member and demonstrating a willingness to learn and develop
  • Excellent networking skills, influencing and communication skills.
  • And someone who believes in what our charity  is doing

 

What difference will you make?

  • We want a happy, productive staff and volunteer team who already work over and above their hours, and so deserve to work in an environment that respects, protects and supports them. We do but we want to do it better. 
  • We want to achieve a high level of Investors in People quality framework

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.
