The Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the GlamSci, developing GlamSci’s aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines.

In this role, you should be confident and vocal with good people skills and are able to work well as part of a team. This role requires great patience and understanding of the roles and responsibilities a trustee has.

What skills do I need?

The duties of a trustee are as follows:

• Ensuring that the organisation pursues its stated objects (purposes), as defined in its governing document, by developing and agreeing a long-term strategy. • Ensuring that the organisation complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations • Ensuring that the organisation applies its resources exclusively in pursuance of its charitable objects (ie the charity must not spend money on activities that are not included in its own objects, however worthwhile or charitable those activities are) for the benefit of the public. • Ensuring that the organisation defines its goals and evaluates performance against agreed targets. • Safeguarding the good name and values of the organisation. • Ensuring the effective and efficient administration of the organisation, including having appropriate policies and procedures in place. • Ensuring the financial stability of the organisation. • Protecting and managing the property of the charity and ensuring the proper investment of the charity’s funds.

In addition to the above statutory duties, each trustee should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the board of trustees reach sound decisions. This may involve scrutinising board papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, or other issues in which the trustee has special expertise.
