Seeking new trustees
The Board is seeking to appoint new trustees to assist MiD with its development.
Candidates will need to show interest in our work. They should be able to think strategically, to review and question management reports and financial information, to assess and manage risk, and to help develop strategic objectives to ensure that MiD is able to continue with and where possible expand its important work.
General attributes required of all Trustees include:
- A demonstrable understanding of the issues pertinent to successful governance of a charity
- An ability to think strategically and to constructively question and review management reports, finances, forward plans, overall objectives, major resourcing issues and potential risks
- A clear interest in MiD and the importance of its work
- Sound, independent judgment and integrity, avoiding any conflicts of interest
There are up to five Board meetings a year, usually held in the early evening in Hampton. Trustees are expected to be available during the year to either participate in occasional specialist meetings or to provide guidance to the Executive Director.
Induction sessions led by the Chairman and the senior leadership team will be organised to familiarise new trustees with the work of MiD and the challenges it faces.
This is an unremunerated role though reasonable expenses will be reimbursed, if required.
If you are interested in applying for a Trustee Position please could you send your CV and a covering letter through to: firstname.lastname@example.org
