We are looking to recruit two new Trustees who can offer a background in Heritage and PR. Coldharbour Mill Trust Ltd operates the Coldharbour Mill Working Wool Museum which is housed in a Grade II* listed building, originating in the 18th century as a wool-spinning factory and operated by seven generations of the Fox family firm until closure.Charity Trustees are the people who serve on the governing body of a charity. They are equally responsible in law for the Board’s actions and decisions and have equal status as Trustees. Charity Trustees have and must accept ultimate responsibility for the charity’s affairs. They use their personal skills and experience to ensure that the charity is solvent, well run, efficient and delivering its charitable outcomes.
The Trustee role can be very rewarding and enjoyable offering an opportunity to serve the community whilst learning new skills. The Trustees 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 Executive and Senior Management Team.
If you are interested in becoming a Trustee, we would love to hear from you. Please email your CV and covering letter to the Chair, Jackie Dawkins (firstname.lastname@example.org). After an initial telephone conversation, you may be invited to an informal meeting with Jackie and the CEO at Coldharbour Mill so you can hear more about our work and we can find out more about you.
