Your chance to help change lives for the better. We are looking for passionate and skilled people to join Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL).
We have been helping people change their lives for the better through voluntary and community action in Leicester and Leicestershire for over 50 years.
This is an exciting opportunity for people who have a commitment to see change and can contribute their skills and experience to benefit the local communities of Leicester and Leicestershire.
VAL is a local charity and so it is important that our trustees have strong connections to the diverse communities of Leicester and Leicestershire. Becoming a Trustee means you have one of the most important and inspiring roles within the charity.
Key to our success will be to influence a wide range of stakeholders. You will be part of a strong, collegiate and committed Board, providing strategic guidance, challenge and support to our Chief Executive, Executive Management Team, and offering good governance oversight to VAL.
We want to hear from individuals from a range of backgrounds, including (but not exclusively), strategic finance; organisational development; senior contracting or commissioning experience.
We would particularly welcome applications from women, people from ethnically diverse backgrounds, people with disabilities and people from LGBTQ+ communities. The Board meets for 2-3 hours once a month, with the occasional sub-meetings outside the normal schedule.
The present Board includes individuals with a range of work and life experiences. Some have prior knowledge of trusteeship, whilst for others VAL is their first experience of a governance role. As volunteers, reasonable expenses will be paid.
