What does it mean to be a Gladrags trustee?
Your impact as a trustee will enable us to develop key areas, share expertise, help us reflect and move forward. Trustees meet 4 to 6 times a year, and work with our Director and management team to set the strategic direction of the organisation, monitor budgets, govern and support day-to-day operations.
Expertise in the following areas are of particular interest: finance; income generation or marketing; policy and governance; the arts industry; the voluntary sector.
Because we acknowledge the value of life-experience alongside professional skills, we are equally keen to hear about other knowledge and skills that you feel you would contribute.
Trustees give their time on a voluntary basis, as required by charity law and we are looking for people who are able to be proactive and commit time in between meetings to share expertise and give advice (equivalent to half a day a month). We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values equality. We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values equality. We celebrate diversity in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective. We feel that by creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work is the right thing to do.
If our mission and purpose resonate with you, we invite you to engage with this exciting opportunity to join us on the next stage of the organisation's journey.
