Independent Trust Members
The role of a Trust member is extremely important, overseeing the achievement and objectives of the Trust and aspects of its governance. The role of a Trust Member is one step removed from that of a Director/Trustee. While Trust Members have a ‘hands off’ role, they are crucial in maintaining an overview of the effectiveness of the trust structure and holding the Directors/Trustees to account.

You will be required to attend 2 meetings per year. The role is voluntary, all reasonable expenses in accordance with the Trustees and Governors Expenses Policy; including travel and childcare may be reimbursed.

We are specifically looking for people who have:

  • a passion for, and commitment to, the education and development of young people
  • experience and skills in any one of the following areas: financial management, education, business management or have community links in and around Haringey
