Young Trustee needed for Adviza Board
11th Feb 2016
Adviza is looking to recruit an additional Young Trustee. This is an opportunity for a young person to get involved at Board level with a local charity, acquire some experience of high level meetings and have something different on their CV.
Candidates will ideally be aged 16+ and resident within the Thames Valley. This role is to represent the views of young people in the Thames Valley on the Board and you should therefore be confident and happy to join in discussions at Board level.
The Board meets three times a year at our Support Centre in Bracknell (on a Tuesday afternoon) and you should be able to attend most if not all meetings. These dates are set at the beginning of the year and are normally in March, June and November.
Discussions at this Board centre on the strategic direction of the organisation: we review the progress of our contracts with local authorities and schools, we look at projects we are running in the community and we often try to incorporate a presentation from young people as part of the meeting. Other important items include talking about the structure of the organisation, fundraising, business plans, marketing, governance, finance and accounts.
Our Board includes two other young people, voluntary sector CEOs, representatives (at a senior level) from the local authorities in which we work, College Principals, our own staff and management trustees as well as our Chief Executive, the chair of Connexions Buckinghamshire, and a number of co-opted trustees.
This is not a paid position, but reasonable travel costs are reimbursed for attending our Board (and other) meetings: our young trustees also have the opportunity to attend policy briefings in Westminster, our annual company awayday (along with all our other trustees), in-house workshops and to get involved in our marketing and evaluation activities.
If you are interested in applying for this position, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
