Job Description


Steering the charity on its next stage of development

Dartmouth Caring is a local charity that exists to help those in need, the elderly and the vulnerable within Dartmouth and surrounding villages. We’ve recently celebrated our 30th Birthday, and through our 100 or so volunteers and the equivalent of 6 full time staff provide a wide range of services aimed at improving health and well-being within our community.

We are seeking additional trustees who will actively contribute their skills and experience, with an enthusiasm to enhance the services we provide.

This is an opportunity to be part an inclusive and thriving charity.

The principal responsibility is to contribute to steering the charity on its next stage of development. Additionally, there are the normal governance responsibilities that apply to any trustee role.

There is more than one vacancy, and we hope to bring to the Trustee Board additional skills in Health and Social Care, and in Leadership and Finance.  General requirements are empathy with our charitable aims, good judgement, an ability to think creatively and to work effectively within a team.

The role is voluntary, meetings of the Board are quarterly and Trustees are involved with other matters throughout the year.

If you have such skills and the time and energy to devote to the charity, please submit your CV and a covering statement expressing why you are interested in joining the charity, how your skills would add value to the board and any other relevant information.

Closing date:  5th September 2018

Informal interviews: 18th September 2018 tbc
