We are looking for people to join the VocalEyes Board of Trustees.
The trustees have the ultimate responsibility for running the charity, for its finances and the employment of staff. But being a trustee should also be immensely rewarding, providing opportunities for personal development. And while you bring your skills and energy to the role, we hope you would gain new experience and knowledge. For instance, you will help plan the strategic future of the charity and its work, be involved in advising and developing staff and make policy decisions. You will also ensure VocalEyes is accountable to its beneficiaries, to the Charity Commission and the public in general.
Effective trustee boards need a range of people with a good mix of skills. The best boards are also diverse, with people who have a real understanding of the needs to be met and others with good financial, business and management experience. Half of our current board are blind or partially sighted, and as we aim to maintain or exceed that ratio, we are particularly interested in hearing from people with experience of sight loss.
We are particularly interested in people who bring skills and experience in the theatre or museums sector, as well as fundraising and development, legal, audience engagement, digital.
