Want to become a VASL Trustee?

TRUSTEES– VASL (Voluntary Action South Leicestershire)

Do you want to make a difference to those in need in your community?

Do you have some time to give to your local charity?

Do you have skills and experience that you can share with us?

VASL is a thriving charity based at Torch House near the Leisure Centre in Market Harborough. We provide a range of excellent services to the communities of Harborough District – including social transport for those with mobility problems, Community Champions for isolated older people and groups for young carers. We also have a contract with Leicestershire County Council to provide Support for Carers; we support over 5,000  family Carers across Leicestershire.

We are looking for new trustees to join our small, committed and friendly Board of Trustees/ Directors.

We particularly need new trustees with expertise and knowledge in Finance and Governance. But, if you can offer other skills, we would like to hear from you.

We are committed to diversity and aim to ensure that the composition of the Board of Trustees reflects the community at large.

All potential trustees should be able to commit time to attend a full Board meeting every two months and an annual Strategic Planning event. Trustees are also encouraged to join at least one sub-committee (currently Finance and HR) and participate in joint working groups with the staff.

These posts are unpaid but reasonable expenses will be paid.

Applicants will be asked to submit a CV, complete an application form and a short skills audit.

For an informal discussion please contact our Chair, Linda Jones, on l.jones2k@btinternet.com


For further information and to apply please call Jo Pateman on 01858 433232 or email hr@vasl.org.uk
