Job Description

ECT is looking for four new trustees who share our ambition to provide top-quality, safe, affordable and accessible transport services for every community we serve.

Our new CEO and dedicated Board of Trustees are forging exciting plans for the future, alongside our top-notch team of committed, professional managers, drivers, assistants and administrators. As new trustees, you will help steer our charity on the next stage of its important journey. 

ECT has been providing journeys for our communities for over 30 years – but we are much more than just a bus service. We use transport to help people who may be a part of the growing loneliness epidemic, for example, in both urban and rural areas. 

Whether it’s taking somebody for their weekly trip to the supermarket, a visit to the GP, a minibus for a local youth group, SEN school runs or a day out with friends and family – wherever people need a hand, we like to be there to help. We make journeys possible, across the communities we serve.

We are a ‘forward looking’ charity and recognise that the world in which we operate is changing. This means we are always keen to look at opportunities for innovation and working together; we know the value real partnership working can bring to help people combat their own issues.

It’s the difference we make to individuals and their families that really demonstrates our positive impact – but we have some pretty impressive facts and figures to share too:

  • We drive our 130 buses over 1.25 million miles a year 
  • We deliver over 300,000 passenger-trips each year 
  • During Covid-19, we still managed to cover over 900,000 miles, took more than 3,000 people to get their vaccine and delivered over 30,000 emergency food packages to desperate families.
  • And during pre-pandemic years, we developed a reputation as the go-to provider of best-in-class, accessible transport for major sporting events, including the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics and the Rugby World Cup.
