The Oxford Group/IofC UK is looking to recruit up to four new trustees to help oversee the future direction and governance of our charity. We need to strengthen the Board by recruiting people of integrity, who will bring fresh perspectives and skills to the Trustee role. We are looking toward a board more representative of the people and communities we are called to serve.
What does being a Trustee involve?
Trustees are nominated by the existing Board and formally appointed at the AGM of IofC UK. The Board meets at least four times a year and there is also an annual weekend retreat. Trustees should attend these meetings regularly. The quarterly meetings cover a considerable amount of business and it is important to keep abreast of all the preparatory papers as well as any communications that are sent between meetings. The day-to-day running of the charity is overseen by the executive team.
Trustees do not receive payment, however out-of-pocket expenses incurred while carrying out Trustee duties will be refunded.
The annual retreat is a chance to stand back from short-term issues and think strategically about IofC UK’s work and effectiveness. More information about the charity can be found on our website and also in the Annual Report & Accounts, available on request.
