Voluntary Roles

We are looking for volunteers to join our board of trustees and complement the skills of our existing board members.

We are looking for people with skills, knowledge and expertise in the following areas:

  • Fundraising, Events and Communications
  • Facilities Management

What will you be doing?

As a trustee you have ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of our charity, shaping its strategic direction, ensuring that it is well run, safeguarding our assets and maintaining oversight of our risks and finances. You will be using your specific skills, knowledge or experience to help the board of trustees reach sound decisions.

What difference will you make?

Your expertise will be vital in ensuring we can sustainably deliver our services. You will be pivotal, along with your colleagues on the board, in helping us reach our vision to be a beacon of excellence and a lifeline to everyone affected locally by multiple sclerosis.

What’s in it for you?

You will get the opportunity to work with other professionals at our amazing facility nestled in the Chilterns Hills.  What better way to use your skills and experience than becoming part of a local, independent charity where over 300 people with MS rely on us each week to deliver treatment and therapies that make a real difference to them on a day to day basis. This type of support is not available on the NHS.

This opportunity comes at an exciting time in the charity’s over 30 year history when we are revitalising our strategy and service offering, and exploring additional revenue streams.

Commitment

  • Attend monthly Board meetings (last Thursday of any month 6.00 to 8.00pm)
  • Attend Sub-Committee meetings Quarterly (approx. 2 hours)
  • Ad hoc phone calls/emails each month
  • AGM once a year 4 hours on a Sunday

For an informal discussion, please contact Catherine Golds our Vice Chair on 01296 696133 or send your CV and a covering letter by email catherinegolds@chilternsmscentre.org

Closing Date: Monday 6 May 2019
