Hearing Help Essex exists to alleviate the isolation and loneliness that hearing loss can bring. Our award-winning team of staff and volunteers provide services across the County supporting thousands of individuals each year. We have an exciting opportunity available for two new members to join our Board of Trustees.
Trustee Role Profile: As a member of the Board, you will share the collective responsibility for the effective governance and development of Hearing Help Essex, setting its strategic direction and major policies with the Chief Executive and staff in accordance with the Charity’s mission and values. Trustees of HHE are expected to enter into a positive and proactive relationship with the Charity and its staff, as well as providing oversight and guidance for its future strategy and fulfilling the necessary statutory governance obligations
What are we looking for? We are looking for committed individuals to expand the range of Trustee skills as well as to consolidate existing skills, who can support the future growth of the Charity. We require dynamic and motivated people who are sympathetic to the aims and objectives of Hearing Help Essex to fulfil these voluntary duties. We are looking for two new Trustees with expertise in Fundraising, Commissioning, and Marketing. Our current board has 5 members who are fully committed to the charity’s objectives.
We want to have a wide range of people on the Board, and seek to be representative of the diverse population of the County and the people that we support. You do not need to have trustee experience to apply. Reasonable travel and out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
Trustees are expected to
- attend up to seven meetings a year including bi-monthly Board and an annual planning day;
- contribute advice and support on an ad hoc basis; and
- attend events.
