Are you who we’re looking for? Join our board of Trustees

Are you who we’re looking for? Would you like to make a real impact in your local community?

Sherburn and Villages Community Trust – a dynamic local charity with a big impact – is looking to recruit an additional volunteer trustee to join our Trustee Board.

This means attending monthly trustee meetings, contributing to the strategic direction of the organisation, ensuring we are carrying out our charitable objectives and managing our resources, and supporting our small team of staff and volunteers.

You will:

  • Be numerate and computer literate
  • Have good communication skills
  • Be committed to your local community
  • Understand and accept the responsibilities and liabilities of being a trustee
  • Be able to meet the minimum time commitment of ten 6pm Monday evening trustee meetings per year

What difference will you make?

We were formed in 2016 and have been successfully managing Sherburn & Villages Community Library and Old Girls’ School Community Centre & Tearoom, Sherburn In Elmet as well as developing our role as a Community Anchor Organisation. You can play a part in continuing that success.

What’s in it for you?

You will share your skills and experience and make a real impact on your local community. You will work with a friendly team of dedicated people and develop transferable skills, improve your CV and broaden your experience.

Becoming a trustee is both a rewarding way to help your community and a way to learn fantastic new skills. It’s an invigorating and active role, which puts you at the very heart of a charity and its work, liaising with a team of like-minded people.
