Would you like to be part of a well-respected Midlands charity and have the opportunity to shape its future?
Castel Froma Neuro Care is looking for a Trustee to join its Board of Trustees. This is an exciting opportunity to make a significant and lasting difference to individuals living with a neurological condition.
This role would suit a range of people, from young professionals looking to broaden their leadership experience, to senior or retired professionals looking to give something back to their local community.
Our mission is to run outstanding care and rehabilitation centres, providing long-term and respite services for people with neurological conditions. Our aim is to provide the highest standard of nursing care for individuals with conditions such as acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease, all whom have complex and unique needs.
Castel Froma Neuro Care is a standalone registered charity based in Royal Leamington Spa providing care and permanent accommodation for over ninety residents with complex neurological conditions across our two care centres. We take pride in the specialist care provided to our residents and the sound governance of the organisation.
THE OPPORTUNITY AND WHAT’S INVOLVED
As a Trustee, you will share collective responsibility for the effective development and direction of Castel Froma Neuro Care. The Board and the Senior Management team work very closely to set the strategic direction for the charity and ensure that it is delivered effectively. The Trustees participate in board decision making and specialist sub-committees, as well as providing advice and support to the Senior Management team.
Trustees have the opportunity to shape the work of Castel Froma Neuro Care and have a positive impact on individuals living with a neurological condition in the UK. You will gain valuable personal development from first-hand experiences of working at a strategic level in a large charity and working alongside highly experienced trustees and executive staff from a range of backgrounds.
In gaining an in depth understanding of how an organisation with a £7m turnover operates and adapts to change there will be the opportunity to develop your experience in board level governance, corporate risk management, strategic planning, finance, marketing, leadership and management capabilities. As a new Trustee you will develop a comprehensive understanding of a sector which may be new to you, together with the transferable skills and expertise required to conduct the role successfully.
You will receive a full induction and training for the role of Trustee, as well as the opportunity to be mentored by an experienced trustee.
