SJMT is a family of charities & community of people supporting those most in need in the West Midlands. This is an extremely exciting time to join the Trust. Our family of charities have been providing services to local people in need for over 370 years and whilst our history is important to us, we have a strong vision of the future we want to help create. Over the past 5 years, we have been through an exciting period of transformation and growth which has led to an increase in services, the size and reputation of the organisation. In 2023, we will launch our new 5-year Strategy which will see us further improve and expand the work we do.

We're looking for Trustees with experience in finance, housing development, working with older people or IT to join our historic, yet forward thinking charitable Trust at an exciting time and development and growth!

Trustees fill an essential role in ensuring our Trust improves the lives of vulnerable people in the West Midlands. We have space for up to three new Trustees and we are particularly looking for people who have knowledge, skills, and experience in Finance/Accountancy, housing development, working with older people or IT.
