Come and join the board of an organisation full of amazing people, doing amazing things, every day.

Alternative Futures Group is one of the largest not for profit Health and Social Care charities in the North West and has been changing lives, creating independence and achieving great outcomes for the brilliant people we support. Next year we are making plans to celebrate our 30th birthday.

We are proud of what we do and the difference we make in people’s lives, and our new strategy includes the aim to raise our profile and elevate our clients’ voices in the public sphere.

In order to support our plans and enable and empower our people to do amazing things, the Board is now looking to appoint two new trustees with financial expertise to replace those whose terms have come (or are coming) to an end.

Who we’re looking for

We are seeking individuals with a fundamental alignment to our charitable purpose and mission. With exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, you will bring sound judgement, the ability to think strategically and offer constructive challenge and debate to the Board and senior officers.

While new Trustees do not necessarily need to have held previous non-executive roles, they will be able to demonstrate a successful track record in wide reaching senior leadership positions.

Specifically, to complement the strengths of our existing team, we are looking to appoint two Trustees with experience at a strategic level in Finance.

One trustee will Chair our Audit and Risk Committee and one will sit on our Finance and Performance Committee.

For both roles we are seeking qualified accountants who can take an overview of our finances, provide challenge/support and ask difficult questions when required. Above all, are seeking trustees with a strong social conscience and alignment to the values of AFG.

In order to help drive our organisation forwards whilst maintaining our strong reputation with our regulators and commissioners we are ideally looking for new Trustees with a strong profile and connections to networks across the North West, and the ability to promote and boost awareness of Alternative Futures Group and our philosophy.

Time commitment of circa 1 day per month. In addition to board meetings, each Trustee will have membership of one subcommittee.

Closing date: Monday 10th January 2022
