Apply now to be a trustee of UNISON’s own charity.
Being a trustee of ‘There for you’ (working name of UNISON Welfare) is a challenging but highly rewarding role. Trustees are responsible for directing the charity in line with our mission and ensuring the organisation is managed effectively.
We are now looking for members with a variety of experience, knowledge and skills – either personal and/or professional to join the Board of Trustees and fill the 6 elected trustee positions. Balance is just as important in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability.
Trustees act in a voluntary capacity and, whilst there is no remuneration, out of pocket expenses are paid. Trustees also benefit from induction training, ongoing support and, will attend approximately 6 meetings a year.
Applications are welcome from full members who are actively involved in UNISON either as a branch welfare officer and/or member of a regional welfare committee. Trustees serve for two years and can stand for re-election at the end of their term.
Interested? If you feel you could make a valued contribution, phone 020 7121 5620 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application pack which contains all the information you need to consider the role.
The closing date for completed applications is 7 May 2018 5.00pm.
