Hounds for Heroes : Board Trustees ( Voluntary)
Hounds for Heroes is a charity providing specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled UK Military and Emergency Services personnel. The Charity aims to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life, www.houndsforheroes.com
The charity has grown steadily since it’s foundation in 2010 and whilst the past year has interrupted that growth, the strategic intention is to drive further development in the coming years. To this end we have appointed a Charity Manager and are looking to increase the membership of the Board of Trustees.
We want to build a diverse and inclusive Board with varied experiences and skill sets. Overall our key requirement is to find applicants with enthusiasm for, and commitment to help deliver, the Chairty’s mission but would also particularly welcome applicants with financial expertise or fundraising or digital marketing experience. Knowledge of the charity industry would be welcome but is not essential.
As a member of our Board of Trustees you will be part of the leadership team responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the Charity, helping us achieve our vision and ensuring that the Trust fulfils its charitable purpose through the development of the organisation’s objectives and strategy.
Given the Charity’s stage of development it is important that you are willing and able to commit sufficient time, focus and input to the role. In return you can expect considerable personal satisfaction, the opportunity to meet interesting people and learn new skills and the chance to be part of a great cause.
Whilst not essential, being within an hour’s drive to the Charity’s HQ near Petersfield, Hampshire would be an advantage.
