Quality trustees from a trusted source
Trustees Unlimited

Trustees Unlimited is a joint venture between Bates Wells Braithwaite, the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and Russam GMS and it is a solution to the problem many organisations face - trying to recruit high quality trustees and non executives in a rigorous and yet cost effective way.

Established in 2009, Trustees Unlimited has quickly established itself as one of the premier providers of trustee and non executive recruitment. Whether it is a trustee for a charity, a director for a social enterprise or a volunteer to sit on an audit committee, Trustees Unlimited has unprecedented access to a large group of high calibre people who are actively looking for such roles and offers a unique model of delivery. With a database and network that is both large and diverse Trustees Unlimited is making a real difference in terms of helping boards become balanced and effective.

Trustees Unlimited and its sister service, Non-Executives Unlimited, are committed to improving governance in the Civil Society Sector and through recruitment, training and mentoring have developed a unique offering that is helping many organisations strengthen their boards.

Forthcoming Trustees Unlimited Events here

Trustees Unlimited event – The Funding Economy, London

The funding landscape is constantly changing. A panel of experts will discuss the different ways charities derive income, from conventional fundraising through to contracts and social finance.  We will explore the pros and cons of each and crucially how charities in the future can ensure they are sustainable. The panel will then take questions from the floor and open up to a wider debate.

The panel will be comprised of:

  • Jim Clifford, Partner and Director of BWB Advisory and BWB Impact
  • Paul Stallard, Chair of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association
  • Gill Raikes,Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity
  • and will be chaired byRuth Driscoll, NCVO’s Head of Policy & Public Services
