Organisation: Lloyds Bank Foundation
Three year term (with potential to review for a further three years). 10 days per annum (non-remunerated).
Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales partners with small and local charities who help people overcome complex social issues like mental health, homelessness, addiction or domestic abuse. Through long-term funding, developmental support and influencing policy and practice, the Foundation helps charities make life-changing impact.
Lloyds Bank Foundation is an independent charitable trust funded by the profits of Lloyds Banking Group as part of their commitment to Helping Britain Prosper. As one of the UK’s leading corporate foundations and independent grant-making trusts, they offer more than just a funder, delivering developmental support to charities including through mentoring from Lloyds Banking Group senior managers, and acting as an advocate for the small charities seeking to influence Government policy and practice.
Chaired by Baroness Rennie Fritchie, DBE, the Board of Trustees includes individuals from an array of sector backgrounds (including representation from Lloyds Banking Group) who actively bring their expertise in specialisms such as finance, audit and investment management. The Foundation now wants to appoint two Trustees with particular skills and experiences, prompted by two existing Trustees reaching the end of their terms of office.
If you bring a practical understanding of communities at a local level, or a background in social sciences research as it can affect support on the ground, these Trustee roles offer a great opportunity to join a collaborative Trustee Board and make a demonstrable contribution to the work of small charities.
You will either have:
Whatever your professional background, you will be willing to engage fully not just in Board meetings but also in supporting the executive team with your particular insights and experience in making maximum impact.
As the Foundation works with charities across the whole of England and Wales, we want to attract suitably qualified candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds particularly those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds to ensure the Trustee Board has a broad range of perspectives and is reflective of the people and charities we support.
Closing date for applications is noon Friday 20th July 2018.
