Vacancy Details

We are seeking four new Trustees to expand our Board in readiness for the next phase of our development. In the coming years we expect to significantly increase our range of services and sources of income. As part of this new strategic focus, and to ensure a balance of skills and experience on the Board, we are particularly looking to recruit Trustees with a background in one of the following areas:

  • Human resource management knowledge and expertise.
  • Digital transformation experience, and good IT skills and expertise.
  • Legal experience, particularly within the social care, health and voluntary sectors.
  • Experience of fundraising, commissioning or bid writing.
  • Marketing and/or Public Relations.

If you don't have these skills but you believe that your background could be useful to us and you are interested in joining our board, please do still get in touch. We particularly welcome applicants from black and minority ethnic groups, to address under representation amongst these groups.

If you share our ambition of improving the lives of people caring for others in East Kent, and would like an opportunity to develop your own skills and experience at Board level we'd be delighted to hear from you. If you are, or have been a Carer yourself, your understanding and experience would be especially valuable.

Trustee roles are voluntary but out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.
