The rewards of being a trustee
TrusteeWorks helps skilled volunteers find a challenging and rewarding trustee opportunity. We offer you information and support to help make the experience fun and satisfying. Becoming an effective and inspiring trustee is a journey and TrusteeWorks is here to help you every step of the way.
Being a trustee is a great challenge. Becoming a trustee provides the opportunity to apply the skills and experience you have gained to a totally new environment and context. Many trustees find working as part of a team hugely energising and satisfying. As a trustee you could help a charity improve people’s lives, change the environment or transform a community. Being a trustee can also build your social contacts, broaden your CV experience or get you involved in something completely new.
We can help you from the outset by clarifying the role of a trustee and explaining the duties, responsibilities and the kind of commitment you will be expected to make.
The unique TrusteeWorks service
Our unique and personalised service allows you to choose for yourself what kind of organisation you would like to get involved in, whether it be a local group or a national charity. It may be that you feel strongly about a certain area such as child welfare, the environment or the arts, or you may prefer to look at our searchable register of opportunities to see what inspires you. TrusteeWorks allows you to select your own criteria.

Our trustees are varied; some are retired, many are working full or part time. Trusteeship can fit around your work, home and other commitments. Most of our trustees have at least three years' experience in marketing, accountancy, HR, strategic planning, finance, project management, business, general management or other relevant skill areas.
TrusteeWorks is here to find you a great trustee role and support you through the challenges which you may meet along your trustee journey.
