Interim trustees sought for charity merger
Two leading employee support charities are embarking on a merger of their two organisations to create a new single charity and as such seek interim trustees to help manage this transitional phase and ensure consistent financial and legal compliance.
They would welcome in particular skills in business and mergers and ideally with a background in running and developing charities and some experience of the education sector would also be preferable. The possibility of being co-opted onto the new board of the charity is still up for discussion.
Like with most trustee roles, these are unremunerated and Trustees Unlimited will of course respect the privacy of any conversations around this opportunity. Closing date for applications is Friday 22nd August.
