Chair Trustee and Trustee with Financial Expertise
- x 2/3 Positions
- Voluntary Positions
- Attendance of bi-monthly board meetings, an annual strategic/ business planning day and periodic organisational events throughout the year.
Herefordshire Mind’s aim is that no one in our county should have to face a mental health problem alone.
For more than 40 years we have been there for people in Herefordshire with mental health needs, and their carers, helping individuals to be psychologically safe, to thrive and to be valued and contributing citizens within our communities. We have also been pushing forward frontiers in the awareness and understanding of mental health, opening up minds and conversations to reduce stigma.
Interest in mental health for all has never been greater, and we have fantastic opportunities through our wide range of highly respected mental health and wellbeing services to really make a difference to the people of Herefordshire and make it a county where mental health really matters.
We are building an organisation that lives its values and has a kind, compassionate and passionate team who are committed to being there for people who are struggling with their mental health. Our trustees are an important part of our team, and we are inviting people who share our vision and values to join our Board.
We are as busy as ever and our services continue to expand to meet the increasing demand with a real focus on community reach and provision of services across the county. Our Board of Trustees is a well-established group of 7 people with a broad range of backgrounds in operational management, manufacturing, property management, HR management, consultancy and expertise by experience. As one of over 120 Local Mind Associations affiliated to National Mind, we are proud to have been awarded Trustees of the Year 2022.
We're Looking For Someone With:
Our two longest serving Trustees, with a combined tenure of over 20 years, will be stepping down at some point in the next 12 months. To help manage this transition and build the team for the future we are seeking to appoint two or possibly three new Trustees. Rather than seeking a specific profile we have learned that what is more important is someone having a passion for what we do, a willingness to engage with challenges and a readiness to provide a light touch, but effective governance.
Our longstanding Chair of Trustees, Mark Waller, is looking to stand down after 10 years in the role and so one of the Trustee appointments will be to replace him. For the role of Chair we are looking for someone who is well established within Herefordshire with a strong local knowledge and network. We are also particularly looking for someone with finance expertise to join as a trustee, this is currently a skills gap that exists within the current board.
We are a charity who always strives to keep those we work with at the centre of all we do and provide services with a heart. We also ensure we work in a supportive and collaborative way across Herefordshire with statutory services and community organisations.
This is a voluntary position and would require attendance of bi-monthly board meetings, an annual strategic/ business planning day and periodic organisational events throughout the year. The Chair is also someone who provides invaluable support and guidance to Alicia Lawrence, our CEO.
This post will require an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.
