Looking for new trustees

August 24, 2016 by Tori Flower

We are currently seeking new Trustees to join our board and to help us meet our responsibilities in terms of governance and strategic direction for the Farm. This includes ensuring that the Farm is compliant with charity law, company law and other relevant legislative and best practice requirements and that the Farm remains focused on its charitable objects.

More specifically, we are seeking Trustees from Fundraising, Human Resources and Company Secretarial backgrounds to bolster the board’s skills in these areas.

The successful applicants will live locally to Tower Hamlets and will be able demonstrate their commitment to our vision and objectives. As such, they will have an interest in compassionate farming, the UK’s rural heritage (including arts and crafts) and the environment and they will understand the benefits our organisation currently brings and can bring to our community.

They will be willing to devote the necessary time and effort to their duties as Trustees and will be strong communicators who can demonstrate tact, diplomacy and empathy whilst also taking a stand when it is needed. Able to work effectively as part of a team, they will have a thorough understanding of the legal responsibilities and liabilities of Trustees and strong experience and skills in the areas which we need.

Ideally they will have held a previous Trustee role and / or will have been employed in a senior role in a charity. A minimum of eight hours a month, including the meetings during the evening of the second Thursday of each month. The monthly requirement can vary depending on Farm needs.

We request no contact from agencies or media sales.
