Being a Trustee

Being a Trustee is very rewarding. As a trustee, you are part of a team and will have the opportunity to apply your unique skills and experience while learning from others.

The clear and obvious benefit to being a trustee is the contribution you will make to a great cause, supporting the work of unpaid carers. An additional advantage for you of taking on a trustee role is the wealth of knowledge gained through strategic experience which can be hard to come by in your day to day paid role.

A trusteeship is a fantastic way of getting a head start, giving you the opportunity to develop and hone your critical thinking, problem-solving and analytical skills as well as developing vital strategic sensibilities and team working skills. The added value of a trusteeship will enhance your CV, giving you an immediate and powerful impact to progress your career, opening doors to new responsibilities and more senior job prospects.
