Age UK Mid- Devon are looking for two new Trustees to join their Board.  The need to provide support to the older members of our communities has never been more evident that during the recent pandemic.  Age UK Mid-Devon has been supporting older people in the Mid Devon area for the last 22 years.  It has become clear that to sustain and develop this into the future, it may be that a more joined up approach with other organisations across Devon is the way forward.  We are looking for people who can contribute to this conversation and bring their expertise and knowledge to the Board.  Specifically, a background in law and/or mergers and acquisitions would be incredibly valuable.  There is also the need for someone with a background in marketing/communications at a strategic level.

The Trustee role can be very rewarding and enjoyable offering an opportunity to serve the community whilst learning new skills.  The Trustee role is to focus on the strategic direction of the charity and to ensure effectiveness and accountability.  Day-to-day operational decisions are delegated to the Chief Officer and Senior Management Team.

If you would like to have an initial conversation about Trusteeship and joining the Board at Age UK Mid-Devon, please contact Jackie Dawkins at Shine Charity  Recruitment (   01884/841751)

Location South West
Job Information

The Westcountry Rivers Trust is recruiting three Trustees. Formed in 1994, the Trust was established to restore Westcountry rivers by undertaking measures that protect river and their flora and fauna but also help save money for farmers, improve fisheries, lower costs for water companies, boost tourism, reduce the need to dredge estuaries and even benefit human health. Everything we do is informed by the best available science and our work is driven by an ‘ecosystems approach,’ which considers the function of the entire catchment, not just the rivers that flow within them

Today we work with a wide range of stakeholders from landowners to local communities, businesses, farmers and water companies to restore and protect the rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal areas for the benefit of people, wildlife and the local economy. Following a recent Governance review we are looking to re-shape the Board and are seeking to appoint people with a passion for our environment who can offer expertise in the areas of finance, HR and marketing.

Please contact Jackie Dawkins at Shine Charity Recruitment for further information.
