Trustee - St John's Winchester Charity

Winchester, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Closing on 22 April 2024

We are working in partnership with St John’s Winchester Charity, (SJW) which is now looking to recruit Trustees to join its Board of Trustees, which sets and approves the charity’s strategy.

SJW’s core mission is to help older people live well. It provides almshouse accommodation in central Winchester for about 105 older people with housing and other needs. It also supports older people in Winchester and the surrounding district to continue to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible; with its outreach services – Hand in Hand, established in 2018, and Dementia Support, established in 2022. 

The role of Trustee can be enormously interesting, rewarding, and enjoyable. SJW is looking to appoint several new Trustees ls to join a lively, engaged, collegiate Board. It is particularly keen to hear from people who can bring the following skills and experience:

  • Fundraising (including an understanding and appreciation of the use of social media)
  • Health and welfare of elderly people
  • Management of social housing/law and regulation of social housing
  • Property portfolio management
  • Domiciliary care – specifically the commercial aspects of running such a service.
  • Charity governance

And with the following personal qualities:

  • Commitment to SJW’s values
  • Willingness to devote the necessary time and effort using your knowledge and skills for the benefit of SJW.
  • Good judgment and the ability to think creatively.
  • The willingness to speak your mind and to work effectively as a member of a team and to take collective responsibility.
  • Commitment to act exclusively in the interests of SJW, avoiding where possible any conflict of interest and declaring any actual or possible conflict at the earliest opportunity.

You will be able and willing to work collaboratively and to contribute to discussion and decision-making across all aspects of SJW’S work. There are four subcommittees, on which trustees are invited to serve according to their interests and expertise.

Please note: Our trustees attend four board meetings a year, usually held on a Wednesday morning in March, June, August and December. Meetings are held at SJW’s offices in Winchester although remote attendance is available for trustees unable to attend in person.

For more information, please contact Sandra Smith, Associate Director. Applications should include your CV and supporting statement. 

We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, colour, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, or other category protected by law.
