Safeguarding Trustee role

The YSS Board of Trustees is looking to recruit a trustee to take the lead on safeguarding; the individual will bring experience, expertise and knowledge to the scrutiny of safeguarding arrangements and best practice within YSS. 

The Board of Trustees meet every 6-8 weeks for approximately 2-3 hours and you will also need to be available on one or two other days throughout the year to attend the staff conferences/meetings, etc.  You will need empathy for the people we work with and be as passionate and dedicated as our staff and volunteers.

Trustees are unpaid but all reasonable expenses are reimbursed. Meetings are held in Worcestershire usually at our head office in Worcester.

If this role is of interest but you are unable to commit to a full trustee role but you have the relevant safeguarding knowledge and experience we would still like to hear from you as we would consider a trustee associate role.

To arrange an informal chat with either our Chair of Trustees or our Appointments Committee Chair  please telephone Ann Winter on 01905 730786 or email [email protected]

Closing date: 9.00 am Tuesday 7 January 2020

Interviews: Tuesday 14 January 2020
