Shannon Trust – Join our Board of Trustees
Shannon Trust supports thousands of prisoners a year to transform their lives by unlocking the power of reading. We inspire and train prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can’t.
We are seeking an inspiring individual to become member of our active, committed Board of Trustees.
You will be joining a forward looking, national charity that supports prisoners across England, Wales and Northern Ireland via our simple and effective peer mentored approach. You will be part of a wider team of Trustees, employees, and volunteers who provide the framework in which prisoners teach other prisoners to learn to read.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for governance, strategy, performance management, and leadership of the charity.
We welcome applications from people with a range of different backgrounds and knowledge. In particular, we are seeking applications from people with
Senior leadership experience in a corporate environment, a background in enterprise/business development or an understanding of income generation/fundraising.
This is an unpaid role, but reasonable expenses will be paid for travel to meetings and agreed out of pocket expenditure.
If you are interested in joining the team at Shannon Trust as a Trustee please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an application pack.
Completed applications must be received by 7th April 2019.
Interviews will be held on 2nd May 2019.
