Trustees (voluntary basis)
Hardie Park is a community hub, greatly valued by local residents, that offers a safe green space for outdoor recreation, a café, a cycle hub, and various free or low-cost activities and groups open to all.
We are looking to grow our Trustee team, and as such would like to bring up to 4 new Trustees on Board to help us in our work to ensure that Hardie Park is able to continue making a difference to the people of Stanford-le-Hope, and beyond.
We meet monthly – in the evening of the first Monday of each month. Historically our meetings have been held at our community space in Hardie Park (Stanford-le-Hope, Essex), but we are able to accommodate virtual attendance for anyone based further afield. Beyond our monthly meetings, we would expect ad-hoc involvement in matters relating to the charity’s governance, meetings with partners etc. Beyond that, trustees will be encouraged (although this is not essential) to volunteer time with the charity to learn more about the organisation, systems/processes, to meet park users, understand fully the impact of our work etc
We are looking for people who understand the power of community organisations such as ours, and who are passionate about improving our work. While we do have a need on the Board for a trustee with skills and knowledge of HR, we would welcome applications from anyone who feels that they can contribute their skills, and their time to our work. We are looking for people with a commitment to diversity and inclusion, who are a team player, and most importantly, people who are passionate about the work of our charity.
This is a voluntary role but all reasonable expenses properly incurred will be reimbursed.
We are considering applications on a rolling basis.
Please send a CV and a short supporting statement (maximum of one side of A4) outlining your interest in our work and this opportunity. For a confidential discussion, please contact Matt Adams, our Chair, on firstname.lastname@example.org
