Since being established in 1995, Carers in Hertfordshire has built a reputation on high quality services, led by carers; for carers. We are now seeking a number of individuals committed to our purpose, objectives and values to become Trustees.
Slava Budin-Jones, Chair of our Board of Trustees, said: “Being a Trustee is a rewarding and valuable role and we are looking for passionate, committed and enthusiastic individuals who are invested in carers needs and can make a positive contribution to the work and development of the charity.”
We are looking for people that can introduce new experiences and perspectives to our current Board and add to the existing variety and diversity of our work.
Whilst we are open to all applicants, we are particularly interested in hearing from people, aged 18 or over, with strategic management experience in the following areas:
• Property/ estate management/ asset management;
• Public relations & communications; and
• Human Resources.
To ensure we are a diverse and responsive organisation we are also keen to receive applications from ethnic minority communities, women, younger adults, people identifying as LGBTQ+, and those who have experience of supporting young carers.
We also take into account if you have experience of caring as our policy is that at least 60% of Trustees are or have been carers or have a real empathy with caring roles.
Trustees have legal responsibility for the charity and set its strategic direction and ensure that it is managed in a way that meets its charitable objectives. It is a rewarding role and you get to meet a lot of people and use your skills and knowledge to help others.
Carers in Hertfordshire is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety and welfare of staff, volunteers and carers and all roles are subject to a satisfactory DBS check.
