Teens and Toddlers is looking for new Trustees
In particular we are looking for people with Education and Government expertise. The Teens and Toddlers Board aims to cover the following skills, experience and networks:
Skills and experience:
- Organisational growth and development
- Marketing and communications
- Financial management
- Evidence and evaluation
Access to people and resources:
- Funders and commissioners
- Academics and experts
- Charity sector
- Strategy and governance
- Education sector
Not all trustees are expected to have all the skills and experience. We place a high priority on identifying Trustees who are good team players and able to work collaboratively with each other and the executive team.
Trustees are normally appointed for three years, and may be reappointed for a further term of three years. Trustees need to be wholeheartedly committed to Teens and Toddlers’ work and are expected to be advocates of what we do, promoting the charity externally and providing support and challenge the charity to ensure its aims are being met appropriately and effectively.
Board meetings are held six times a year and Trustees are expected to commit time to studying papers, preparing for and attending meetings. Trustees will also be expected to attend other fundraising events, follow-up on specific tasks with other board members, and liaise with the CEO or other staff at the CEO’s request. This is an unpaid role, however, reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.
We encourage and value diversity and are keen to encourage a diverse range of backgrounds to the Board.
