Are you thinking of being a Trustee? Urban Partnership Group (UPG) are looking for a new candidate to sit on the Board of Trustees to provide support in UPGs development and to challenge constructively in decision making. The successful candidate will use their networks and knowledge to support UPG’s development and success. They will ensure that we are delivering good outcomes, and using our funds appropriately. The chosen candidate will have a good grasp of the risks, and suggest effective plans that we can put in place to manage them.
The Board meets four times a year for meetings which last up to 2 hours, and we do our best to work these flexibly around our Board’s other commitments. We ask Trustees to commit to attending these meetings and to read the papers which are sent out in advance. We also encourage Trustees to visit our services occasionally, to meet our service users, volunteers and staff.
If you share our values of inclusion and empowerment, have the time to commit to this, and some relevant experience that will add value to the Board, we want to hear from you.
We particularly welcome people with experience or skills in any of the following areas:
- Growing an organisation/fundraising (voluntary or private sector)
- Human Resources
- Marketing/Public Relations/communications
If you are interested in this position, or want to find out more information, please email the Chair of the Board of Trustees Kamini on email@example.com with a short paragraph outlining why you are interested in this position and what you bring to it. Please use the reference UPG Trustee in your email subject heading.
We hope to have our new Trustee confirmed before our next Board meeting which is scheduled for 20th July so do get in touch as soon as possible.
