Sahir House is an award-winning charity, which provides support for people living with (or affected by) HIV and delivers a range of sexual health promotion, training and information services to professionals and the wider public. The charity is looking for up to three forward-thinking trustees to drive our next stage of development.
Trustees will work with the rest of the board, and executive team, to set a refreshed vision and strategy for the charity, which is seeking to broaden its scope, making this an interesting and exciting time for someone to join us.
We are seeking people who are committed to the values of our charity, who are fair but tactful communicators; who have the confidence to set and achieve high level goals and who can exercise fairness and good judgement. Our current trustees have a mix of skills and experience; we are seeking to recruit new trustees who will complement our existing skills base and we welcome applicants with experience in any of the following areas:
- financial oversight
- company / charity law
- business planning
- marketing, PR, communications
- knowledge/experience of health and social care services
Our board members are unremunerated, although out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed by the charity. Sahir House invests in the personal development of board members, ensuring their skills base increases according to the changing demands of the role and providing development opportunities.
Applicants should send a short CV (up to two pages) and a covering letter demonstrating how they meet each of the criteria in the person specification (another two pages max) and a completed equal opportunities form to firstname.lastname@example.org If you would like an informal chat about the role please contact Sahir House and ask for Gillian.
