Trustee Appointments

In addition to our core business of recruitment, selection and assessment for senior posts within the charitable sector, we are able to offer 

- a systematic and objective approach to trustee recruitment 

- based on a needs analysis 

- in association with an audit of current strengths

- mentoring support for new trustees

The trustee recruitment service uses our Confidential Register of suitable and experienced candidates, all vetted by us and familiar with the general expectations of their role. 

We seek a careful match of individual skill and experience with the needs of the existing board, which may include considerations of a wider race and gender mix if appropriate. We concentrate in particular on selecting candidates with specialist and financial experience as well as business skills. We do not supply any personal details until we have the specific permission of an interested individual to do so, and we include in this service an initial briefing and whatever follow-up support may be required.

The trustee placement service is charged at a very modest fee to cover our marginal overheads. 

For more information please e-mail Mark Cummins, our Trustees Consultant at enquiries@charity-executives.co.uk

Becoming a Trustee

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee, please complete the form below to give us some idea on your interests and availability, and e-mail it to us with a copy of your current CV. This may be an abbreviated version of one you have previously submitted to us for a job application, with more emphasis on voluntary work and interests. The information will be stored on our Confidential Database. 

It is not our policy to give any information that you provide as a prospective trustee to any organisation until we have had a chance to discuss in some detail with them what sort of individual skills are needed. We would then tell you about the possible opportunity and, if you express an interest, provide you with relevant background information to consider before agreeing for your name to go forward.

We are not asked to fill a large number of trustee positions each year and frequently the charity specifies a geographical limit. We take particular care to match people to organisations, so it may be some time before we contact you.
