Help us make a real difference to the lives of the local community

Care Network is now at an important stage of our development and we are seeking to grow our board of trustees.  We want to fulfil our potential as an innovative Home Improvement Agency, building on our established safe trader scheme, and we also want to develop the Care Network Hub, a central multi-agency advice and information center, that supports access to relevant health, wellbeing and independent living options. 

We already have a strong team of trustees in place and are keen to complement their skills with the addition of new trustees who could help the charity to thrive and grow.

We’re currently seeking a number of new trustee positions including a new Honorary Treasurer and other trustees to help take our work forward into the 2020’s.

We are aiming to maintain a diverse Board drawing on a broad range of skills and backgrounds. In particular, we are looking for people who have experience in the following areas:

  • Financial services or accountancy
  • Commercial business management and expertise
  • Legal
  • Links with / knowledge of the health agenda

You will need to be a sound strategic thinker with excellent interpersonal and influencing skills, and be able to demonstrate significant senior level experience. We are seeking candidates who can contribute to the overall strategy and direction of the charity, through effective participation at board meetings and who can support the charity in meeting challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

If you would like more information about this opportunity or an informal discussion about the vacancies please contact James Hadleigh, Chief Executive on 01254 507250.
