Event description

Description

Developing leadership skills through board-level experience

A workshop about becoming a trustee for senior charity leaders

Are you looking for ways to develop new skills on your leadership journey?

Would you like to develop your knowledge and understanding of other causes and types of charity?

Do you wonder how you can gain broad leadership experience across a range of functional areas including strategy, fundraising, finance, HR, PR, impact management and governance?

Joining a charity board as a voluntary trustee is a way of gaining valuable leadership experience and of enhancing your knowledge of the charity sector, thereby supporting your career progression.

This workshop is aimed at senior leaders in the charity sector and will cover:

  • The Trustee Landscape – Scale and Opportunities
  • The Responsibilities of a Trustee
  • Common Misconceptions about Trusteeship
  • Finding The Right ‘Fit’
  • Your Relevant Skills & Experience
  • How to Find and Apply for a Role
  • The Interview and Induction Process
  • What to Expect from a Board Meeting

By the end of the workshop, you will have:

  • a better understanding of what it means to be a trustee and how this can contribute to your own professional development;
  • a clearer idea of the kind of charity and trusteeship you are looking for;
  • an understanding of how to find and research trustee vacancies, and how to navigate the interview process;
  • a better idea of how to match your expertise with a charity’s challenges/needs;
  • a draft cover letter and a redrafted CV with which to apply for trustee vacancies.

This workshop has been organised by Getting on Board and ACEVO (The Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations).
