As the end of the year approaches, it's an important time to reflect on the Charity as a whole and think about what we can do in order to meet the ever increasing demand for OCD Action's services and resources. One way in which we think we can strengthen the Charity further is to grow and enhance our Board of Trustees and welcome new members to the team who can bring fresh ideas to the table and who can support our current dedicated volunteers who sit on the Board.
We need a dynamic and skilled Board to steer us through this next phase of growth and development, and would be especially interested in hearing from people who can bring high level expertise in:
- Charity governance
- Marketing and digital communications
As we are looking to expand and develop the Trustee team, we are also looking for experience in fundraising, volunteer management, working with young people, social work and advocacy.
Personal experience of OCD is not a prerequisite but a real empathy to the cause and an understanding of the value of our work is a must.
Trustees are required to be able to commit sufficient time for this work. There is an average of six Trustee meetings annually, typically early evenings held in London, with Trustees from outside London able to join meetings remotely. This is an un-remunerated role although reasonable travel expenses will be paid in accordance with our policy.
To apply for a trustee role please send a current CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your cover letter should highlight the skills that you would bring to the trustee board and your reason for wanting to be a part of the OCD Action team. If you would like an informal discussion about this opportunity please contact Piers Watson, Chair of Trustees, on 07887 995913
Before applying for the post, we ask that you read the Charity Commission's guidance on becoming a trustee which can be found here.
