Job Description

We are recruiting talented women to join our Board of Trustees

Saffron Sheffield, formerly Sheffield Women’s Counselling and Therapy Service (SWCTS), was established 30 years ago to provide a service by women for women in Sheffield. At Saffron, we deliver a much needed free counselling and psychotherapy service to women who have experienced trauma or abuse.  We provide specialist one-to-one psychotherapy and wellbeing courses as well as therapeutic group activities.

The women we support have often experienced several episodes of trauma over many years and our service aims to help them  rebuild their lives. To this end, we offer up to a year or more of support for those clients with the most complex and severe trauma symptoms.

Whether you are an experienced Trustee or want to take your first step into the role, we would love to hear from you. We welcome applications from women of all ages and backgrounds. 

We are looking for new Trustees with a range of skills and, in particular, in the following areas;

  • Clinical Practice

  • Human Resources

  • Income Generation

  • Finance / Accounting

The expected time commitment will be 11 monthly Trustee meetings per year (on Mondays between 7 - 9pm) including 1 AGM. There may also be some ad-hoc participation in working groups and other activities. Trustees are asked to serve a minimum of one year. We are an established and committed Board with a range of backgrounds and experience and we are seeking to expand our numbers to support the further development of Saffron. Reasonable out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.  

Application Deadline : 5pm on Tuesday 31st August 2021

Informal Interviews will take place between 20th - 30th September 2021
