The board of trustees has recently created two new trustee posts, following a skills audit. The board was aware that it needed more expert knowledge in IT and in trans issues. The board is seeking one or two people to join as trustees who have at least one of the following:
- A high level of IT capability. NFS uses Salesforce, WordPress, Freshdesk, Gmail, Vertical Response and Adobe Formscentral.
- A high level of knowledge surrounding issues relating to trans people.
We know that there are lots of very talented members with a lot of enthusiasm and a wide variety of experience to offer NFS.
Trustee meetings are held every two months (on the second Monday of the month). All the meetings are held via conference call so you can attend from home. There are two away-days each year, which are normally held on a Saturday, when the board meets face-to-face. All expenses are paid.
You can find information from the Charities Commission about the duties and responsibilities of Trustees here. Any member who has reached at least the stage of being approved to adopt or foster and feels able to meet these duties and responsibilities is eligible to apply.
Please note that these posts are not for election. The board will co-opt the one or two people whose skills best match those needed.
Anyone putting themselves forward should apply by emailing Tor by Monday 6th October at the latest and include a brief profile detailing your background skills and experience, and a statement on what you could bring to NFS.
Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
