We are seeking new members to join our Board of Trustees who provide governance, leadership and strategic direction to the charity, and ensure it continues to meet its aims and objectives.
Trustees are vital to the success of Family Care. They are responsible for controlling the management and administration of the organisation to ensure it is run effectively, efficiently and within legal and regulatory requirements.
Family Care positively shapes children’s futures through its adoption services and emotional support to children and young people. Could you work with the team of Trustees to ensure Family Care’s future vision is planned and achieved?
As a Trustee you would also have a role as a guardian of Family Care assets taking due care over their security, deployment and proper allocation. We are particularly keen to hear from those who have specialist knowledge and experience in HR.
We are seeking someone who can bring their skills and experience to the Board in a stimulating, well-rounded and carefully considered way to achieve strategic decision-making.
An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of Trusteeship will be particularly beneficial, together with good, independent judgement, political impartiality and the ability to think creatively in the context of the organisation and external environment.
Good communication and interpersonal skills, balanced with a willingness to challenge and constructively criticise in order to further the aims of the charity are particularly welcome.
The Board meets at least four times a year and a further four meetings a year are also held by the Finance sub-committee. Trustees are expected to attend the majority, if not all of these meetings which are usually held in the day time/early evening at our premises in Nottingham, and attend additional training and development days as required (usually one per year).
