Could you be a trustee for Hunts Forum?

Hunts Forum is recruiting to its board of trustees. Do you have the skills and the passion to take on this key role and be a champion for the voluntary sector?

Hunts Forum of Voluntary Organisations supports the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in Huntingdonshire and beyond, helping to empower communities and improve the lives of residents. We are a registered charity with 128 member organisations ranging from volunteer-led community groups to county-wide charities and town and parish councils. To our members we are a trusted ally, confidant, coach, trouble-shooter and campaigner. We play a vital role in helping new organisations establish themselves, upskilling volunteers and staff, helping our members through challenging times and championing their causes to the wider VCSE sector and beyond.

Our small team of experienced staff is governed by our board of trustees, many of whom are drawn from our member organisations. The board sets the strategic direction, monitors performance and ensures that Hunts Forum delivers on its stated objects. It provides oversight of finances, legal compliance and the appointment and management of staff.

We are fortunate to have an extremely talented, dedicated team of trustees from a range of backgrounds, and we are looking to expand this team. We are appealing to you, the volunteers and staff of our member organisations, because you know more than anyone how Hunts Forum can best serve its members. We are particularly keen to hear from people with experience in HR, legal and fundraising. Trustee meetings are held bi-monthly during the day.

If you think you might be interested, please call Julie Farrow, our CEO, for an informal chat on 07809 214893 or email her at julie@huntsforum.org.uk.
