We are looking for someone with experience of not for profit governance, or an enthusiastic person with knowledge of ME/CFS who is keen to learn about governance, to join us as a Trustee.
Trustees are asked to contribute to Board discussion and decision making. Orientation and support are provided and further training is through the participation in Board meetings.
We are a small trust with big plans! Our work helps people with ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia to live a better life while navigating the challenges of these long term illnesses. Our aim is to open a dedicated respite for people with ME/CFS to provide a sanctuary for safe regeneration of body and spirit, as well as providing carer respite, and we have a number of projects we are implementing on our journey towards opening the respite.
Our new Trustee will preferably have personal experience of ME/CFS, and will bring skills in one or more of following areas: Governance in Not for Profit, Fundraising and Sponsorship; Senior Management; Networking.
A medical or legal background would be an advantage. If you have experience in all or most of the areas above, please make contact to discuss your involvement.
As this is a small team, we are proposing a trial period on the working group before coming on board as a Trustee.
As there will be decisions made on finances of the group, a Police Check will be required.
Meetings are remote and are usually of 1 ½ hours duration. Plus any work to further the Trust’s mission.
