Mind in Bradford is currently looking for exceptional and committed people to join our Board of Trustees. This role would appeal to those who have a positive attitude to people with mental health issues, and who wish to make a direct and significant contribution to our charity, and all the people who benefit from our services.
The role of Trustee is not one to be taken lightly, as it involves hard work, dedication, and ultimate legal and financial responsibility for our organisation.
Being a Trustee, however, can be immensely rewarding and fulfilling. It provides many opportunities for personal and professional development. The areas of involvement include strategic planning, policy development, recruitment, and budget and organisational planning.
You will be joining a team of Trustees who work closely together, and whose individual skills and expertise ensure that as a whole, we are effective in the governance of our charity.
You will be an excellent team player, with determination, integrity, and an ability to communicate effectively with all. You will be ready to commit your time and energy, and to work diligently. You will be required to take the initiative and to have the ability to work autonomously, conduct necessary research, and prepare any relevant evidence according to the needs of the Board.
Above all, you will have the ability to be consistently objective and impartial, and to consider the wider perspective in all situations, in order to place the clear needs of the charity first.
The minimum commitment to this role includes monthly board meetings and regular email and phone discussions. There may also be a requirement to represent the organisation at external events and meetings.
This is an extremely important and significant role within our organisation. You will be working at the heart of everything we do and achieve.
