ABC (Assisting Berkshire Children) to read: Trustee

Assisting Berkshire Children to read are currently looking for a trustee who ideally will be able to assist them to carry the plans of expansion forward and to add their own great ideas. This would also be great for someone who has experience or an interest in the area of education and children’s development. This is an opportunity for someone to work with a great board of trustees who are dedicated to the work of ABC to read. On the board are ex head teachers, and those in business as well as a treasurer. Specific skills in Business Development and Marketing would be of use to the charity in order to develop the charity further by being able to support more children within the community. . In the current climate every charity is struggling. The trustees, staff and volunteers need someone to believe as much as they do that they should be one of the charities to continue to grow as there are many more children that we do not reach. Although the charity covers the whole of Berkshire, the office is in Reading and the trustee meetings are in Reading once a term , an AGM in June and volunteer coffee mornings are carried out each term which you are welcome to attend although not necessary. We would like to obtain presence within the East part of Berkshire and Reading. Required Skills. One trustee required to be preferably based within the East Berkshire area such as Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead area and another trustee to be available for Reading area in order to assist with missed networking opportunities and events. . Excellent networking skills, influencing and communication skills. .

Business Development and Communications would be ideal. While we have a professional and competent management team and staff in place, we are looking for Board Members that are able to provide that strategic governance, as well as practical and hands on approach to enabling the charity to grow and develop. Perhaps you already have experience as a trustee or perhaps you have relevant skills and are looking for your first opportunity to join a board and be involved in leading our charity ensuring Berkshire children are gaining a life skill. . Please send a CV and covering letter to Marcia Rowlinson Expenses reimbursed.
