DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO LEAD A CHARITY?

Did you know….

One in five Charities are crying out for new Trustees to join their board?

Becoming a Trustee is an incredible way to rocket-launch your career, while making an active difference to a cause that really matters.

You don’t need a lot of time (around 30 hours per year is all that’s generally needed).

This role is about STRATEGY, VISION and the DRIVE to lead a Not-for-Profit into the future.

Being a trustee is an extremely responsible role.  Before taking the plunge, there are various different things to consider.  Please  find below some useful resources.
