Charity Trustee Opportunities

Do you have time to spare and want to utilise your skills and experience to help a homelessness charity? If YES we would like to hear from you, as we are currently looking for new charity trustees to join our team at Emmaus Gloucestershire.

Like all charities, Emmaus Gloucestershire relies on a diverse group of people to become trustees and deliver good governance.

We aim to maintain a board of trustees which has people with individual expertise in leadership, organisation development, housing, marketing, fundraising, health and safety, legal and finance.

Alongside the usual duties of a trustee – including giving long term strategic direction to the charity, setting overall policy, ensuring effective and efficient administration and financial stability – Emmaus Gloucestershire’s trustees are expected to play a role in the life of the Emmaus Gloucestershire community.

It’s a unique community of people, with a shared goal in delivering financial sustainability and success for and with our companions.  Trustees are encouraged to visit and maintain regular contact with the community, and where possible, spend time working alongside companions and join companions, staff and volunteers for lunch.

The Emmaus Gloucestershire Board of Trustees meet quarterly in the evening, from 6.30pm, allowing those trustees who work during the day to participate and attend meetings.  There are also occasional away days and potential opportunities to represent the community on a local, national and international level.

This is an unsalaried volunteer role; however, we can pay travel expenses if required.
