Job Description

Age UK Bradford District is working to value everyone’s future, develop age friendly communities and put people first.

We are looking for new volunteer trustees to join the board of directors to oversee the delivery of our exciting strategy - focussing on providing the support and services that older people tell us they want. This is an exciting time to join the Charity as it continues to extend its reach and impact and enable and empower older people to live their best possible life.

Our compassionate, dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers are committed to our new strategy to enable, empower and support people to live well as active, engaged and influential members of their communities promoting their independence, inclusion, choice and control, through our community- based services in Information and Advice, Wellbeing and Engagement and Integrated Care.

As a Trustee you must be inspiring, energetic, and commercial, able to provide support and challenge in equal measure. You will be sharing the benefit and experience of an accomplished career and we are actively seeking candidates who bring experience operating at a board or strategic level within a broad range of sectors. We are particularly interested to meet with people who have one of more of the following attributes:

•Demonstrable success in retail management, marketing, strategic planning, programme management or IT in either healthcare, charitable, public sector or commercial organisations

•Identifying as having a disability or coming from a BAME background

You’ll have a genuine empathy for the charity’s activities, values and work and be committed to the importance of the not for profit sector.

Further details and information can be obtained in the first instance from the CEO, Mark Rounding email: mark.rounding@ageukbd.org.uk  or phone: 01274 391190
