Job description

Avenues Group is a specialist provider of adult social care, supporting people with complex needs to enjoy life.

We take great pride in our positive attitude to risk, which enables people to actively engage in their communities, and really experience life.

But we always want to do things better, and as part of our development we are now looking for new trustees.

Our trustee group has to reflect the diversity of the people we support and the communities in which we work, and we welcome and encourage applicants from all backgrounds.

Duties include;

  • Managing the charity’s resources responsibly
  • Ensuring the charity is accountable
  • Ensuring the charity is carrying out its purposes legally and for the public benefit

Who are we looking for?

As well as a shared commitment to our vision for people, successful applicants will need to have experience in one of the areas below and are willing to undertake some commitee chair duties. Have not been a chair before; that's ok as we will provide chair development.

  • Finance
  • Audit and risk management
  • Fundraising
  • Public relations or public affairs
  • Quality assurance
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Human resources

Why join us?

You’ll be part of an organisation that instils its values at all levels of the business, ensuring the people we support are at the forefront of our decisions.

Our people love working here, and most trustees stay for many years, becoming as passionate as we are.

This opportunity will be useful for anyone wanting to learn more about being a trustee, develop a more rounded skill set, or will hold the interest of someone with many years of experience.
