There for You needs you!

UNISON’s welfare charity is holding an election to find six trustees to direct its work

UNISON’s charity, There for You, is holding an election for six trustees.

We are now looking for UNISON members with a variety of experience, knowledge and skills – either personal and/or professional – to join the board of trustees and fill the six elected trustee positions.

Balance is important in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability.

Being a trustee is a challenging but highly rewarding role, responsible for directing the charity in line with our mission and ensuring that the organisation is managed effectively.

Trustees act in a voluntary capacity and, while there is no remuneration, out-of-pocket expenses are paid. Successful applicants will attend approximately six meetings a year and also benefit from induction training and ongoing support.

Applications are welcome from full members who are actively involved in UNISON either as a branch welfare officer and/or a member of a regional welfare committee. Trustees serve for two years and can stand for re-election at the end of their term.

If you feel you could make a valued contribution, phone 020 7121 5620 or email thereforyou@unison.co.uk for an application pack which contains all the information you need.

The closing date for completed applications is 5pm on 7 May 2018.
