Salary: Unremunerated, but expenses paid

Ormiston Families is a leading charity for children, young people and families in the East of England. We provide services that support children and young people manage the challenges they face and improve their life chances. Our vision is that every child and young person is loved, nurtured and valued: anything less is not acceptable.
We currently run four core programmes of work to ensure the best possible outcomes for children and families across East Anglia.
We are now seeking a new Trustee who shares our concerns and views, and who wants to play a significant role in making our organisation better and stronger over the coming few years.

In particular, we are seeking someone with strategic-level expertise in children’s services commissioning to our strong Board.
The successful candidate will have:
• Senior management experience in an organisation of comparable scale and complexity to Ormiston Families
• Current or very recent experience of the children’s services commissioning environment
• A strong, relevant sector network, and the willingness to use this for the benefit of Ormiston Families
