The IDAS Trustee board has up to 12 trustees and a number of committee members drawn from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors who bring a range of expertise to support the charity in meeting its objectives.
The board meets four times a year at a variety of times and locations in Yorkshire. Trustees and committee members serve a three-year term which may be renewed twice. They are unpaid volunteers but are reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses and childcare or similar costs incurred as a result of attending meetings.
We welcome new members from all backgrounds, and at the moment particularly welcome experience in the areas of business development, change management, income generation, HR, digital & IT, and safeguarding.
Trustees will usually be recruited from amongst existing committee members who have become familiar with the work of IDAS and its board. Occasionally an applicant with much-needed skills may be directly recruited to the board. All new trustee and committee members will be given an induction programme which includes training and the support of a board buddy.
Salary: Unpaid, reasonable expenses | Job type: Part time | Hours: 4-6 hours/month
