We are looking for a new trustee who is a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA or CIMA). Some experience of fundraising would also be valuable, but is not essential.

The role involves:
• Guiding the overall direction of the charity
• Ensuring GMS complies with its constitution and with the law
• Advising the board and organisation according to your particular expertise
• Taking responsibility as a member of the board of trustees for key strategic decisions

We are looking for someone who:
• Is committed to the mission and values of the organisation
• Is prepared to be proactive in helping the charity achieve its vision
• Can discuss positively, arrive at collective decisions and take responsibility for such decisions.

The time commitment will be between three and ten days a year, including three meetings a year and providing advice and guidance to senior staff as required.

This is a voluntary position.

Previous experience as a charity trustee is not required.

An enhanced DBS check and S128 check is required for each trustee due to potential contact with children.

Closing date for applications: 16/1/2020
