Could you be a Trustee of the Foundation?

We have a number of vacancies on the CdLS Foundation UK & Ireland board of Trustees. We are looking to recruit, in line with our policy, three individuals who can add the required skills to the board.
They are voluntary positions but reasonable out of pocket expenses will be paid, travel and accommodation being the main ones. The areas of expertise we would like to find people for are:

  • Social Media skills
  • Accountancy/general financial skills
  • Knowledge/understanding of Ireland’s specific social welfare and health systems

Trustees are responsible for the good governance and financial health of a charity. You would be required to attend a maximum of 2 board meetings per year outside of conferences – Skype is possible but face to face preferred. We do also meet while altogether at conference and it is preferred that trustees attend to help with the running of the weekend. In addition, we have conference calls at the end of each month. In helping to run the Foundation, you may be required to take on a specific role or area of responsibility.
If you feel you could add your expertise to the board of trustees, please read our Trustee Recruitment Policy and download an application form from www.cdls.org.uk/about-the-foundation/our-policies/
