Simon on the Streets is looking for new Trustees to join a fantastic team. 

What does it mean to be a Trustee of Simon on the Streets?

We are a small independent charity that does rely on the Board of Trustees playing an active and engaging role. We do currently have a diverse Board of Trustees but we are looking to add skills and experience in the following areas:

  • Experience of fund application writing and/or access to charitable foundations and grant funding
  • Experience of charity fundraising through events and other income streams
  • Someone with a strong sense of the mission and values of the charity who can support in developing the culture and underpinning the ethos of the charity’s values and mission
  • Some who has charitable sector experience specifically in relation to homelessness, adult mental health, substance abuse or any other area pertinent to the charity
  • An individual with financial experience of financial reporting, forecasting and budgeting and contributing to the future strategy of the Charity
  • Somebody with great social media skills who can support with our marketing and brand strategy

What personal attributes are we looking for?

  • Integrity
  • A commitment to the organisation and its objectives
  • A willingness to devote the necessary time and effort to their duties as a trustee
  • Strategic vision
  • Independent judgment
  • Willingness to speak openly and honestly but also listen to others points of views
  • An ability to work effectively as a member of a team
