CTA Trustee Recruitment 2021
Apply to become a CTA Trustee
Application Deadline: Friday 28 January
We’re recruiting for a new trustee from a member organisation in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. CTA has an active board made up of a mix of trustees from CTA member organisations, and co-opted trustees who are external to CTA and its membership. In line with our constitution we reserve two member trustee roles for members representing Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland specifically to ensure we gain the full perspective of our membership across the UK.
We have recently appointed 5 new trustees (3 member and 2 co-opted) and we now have one further vacancy for a member trustee who is based in in either Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. As a member trustee you will have a genuine opportunity to shape and influence the community transport sector and have a real impact on our sector!
Becoming a trustee is a fantastic and fascinating way to engage in the charity sector. It’s a role which will give back just as much as you put in and often much, much more. Though often challenging, trusteeship will reward the adventurous and ambitious with a wealth of personal and professional skills which are valuable for both work and personal life whilst empowering you with a new sense of contribution in the pursuit of a wider purpose. You don’t need previous trustee or senior charity staff experience to become a trustee and all new trustees will be offered a full package of training and induction.
We have begun to address a number of areas of Board diversity over the last 2 years of recruitment – particularly in looking at a greater range of backgrounds and experience of Board members, improving our gender balance, the range of locations, ethnic and age diversity as well as widening the backgrounds and experiences trustees bring. This continues to remain a priority however, and we are therefore dedicated to ensuring that our recruitment approach is fully inclusive and reaches a diverse range of potential candidates.
If you have a passion to support accessible and inclusive transport in the community, we would be delighted to hear from you.
