Talking Money is looking for some new Trustees to help develop and oversee the strategy for and governance of this successful money advice charity (www.talkingmoney.org.uk). If you are looking for a real opportunity to make a significant difference to local communities and have some relevant experience and perspective to offer, we would encourage you to find out more.
As Universal Credit rolls out fully in Bristol, the impact of all elements of Welfare Reform continues to bite and the cumulative effect of a decade of recession and subsequent very slow patchy recovery continue to affect a substantial number of people and their families. Talking Money works in partnership with others to give people facing financial hardship or crisis some respite and some professional advice and support, to enable them to find their feet or stay on them.
We are looking for new people to join our Board of Trustees which meets six times a year. Four of the existing trustees have been with the charity for at least four years and would welcome some fresh insight and challenge to contribute to strategic thinking and good governance.
Like all charities, attracting and maintaining funding is a core requirement and if you have significant experience, expertise or talent in relation to innovative fundraising, we would be especially keen to hear from you. Current Trustees have a range of business and financial skills and acumen. They are keen to broaden their perspective by including individuals who represent greater diversity. Applications are especially welcome from people who have personal experience that enables them to readily identify with and understand the needs of our clients.
Whilst Talking Money is always interested in an approach from a prospective Trustee, we are currently focusing on bringing in some additions and so it would be especially helpful if you could make contact by 23 February 2018.
