Hertfordshire Equality Council (HEC) wants to recruit four trustees who would like to make a difference to our Hertfordshire communities.

Do you have a passion for fairness, equality and encouraging and celebrating good community relations?

HEC is looking for trustees with experience of fundraising, communications (including websites/social media) and community engagement. A commitment to promoting equality and diversity is essential, as is communication and interpersonal skills needed to be part of our HEC Trustee team.

Previous experience of Board membership is not essential though as a HEC Trustee you will be expected to attend five or more two hour Board meetings a year and to be actively involved in HEC projects where possible.

Would you like to help us improve equality in Hertfordshire? Do you have some time, experience and knowledge to support HEC towards creating an Equal Herts? Then please apply to join the HEC Trustee Board

To apply

Please send a one page summary telling us why you are interested in being a HEC trustee and what skills, experience and knowledge you can bring to the role.

We will hold informal meeting with all applicants.

We are keen to receive applications from members of all Hertfordshire communities as we want to ensure HEC Trustees represent the diversity of the people we serve.

Please call Kate Belinis (Chair) 07940 111047 or Hemant Mistry (Project manager) 078303 75073 for an informal chat.

Viewpoint is a charity whose purpose is to use the views and expertise of people who use mental health and drug and alcohol services in Hertfordshire to bring about change for the better. We also deliver user led training and mental health promotion.

By becoming a Trustee, you will be helping to make a difference to people’s lives and their experiences of the services that are set up to support them. You will be a pioneer in promoting user led services for the future.

Charity Trustees are unpaid volunteers. However, out of pocket expenses are paid for travel. Trustees have and must accept ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of a charity, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up.

The committee meets every 6 weeks and our Trustees also try to volunteer their time to help with projects whenever they can.

In particular we would like to recruit Trustees who have the following expertise:

  • Fundraising capabilities
  • Financial experience
  • Personnel / HR experience
  • Marketing experience
  • Legal knowledge
  • Strategic planning capacity
  • Governance
  • Knowledge of mental health and / or drug and alcohol services

You can be co-opted onto the board if you miss the AGM, and if there are still vacancies for Trustees with certain expertise.

Please speak to Leslie Billy (CEO) on 01707 383641 or e-mail leslie@hertsviewpoint.co.uk for further information.

We hope you will join us!
