Trustees x 2 required with various skills and experience - The Social Interest Group

Voluntary roles
Closing on 6 May 2024

We are partnering with the Social Interest Group (‘SIG’) to appoint new Trustees to join their board.  SIG brings charities together to work under one umbrella focusing on delivering good quality social and health care services.  They support people who are in the criminal justice system, stepping down from hospital, recovering from mental ill health and those moving away from periods of homelessness, recovering from substance and alcohol issues.

Their Mission is to create powerful partnerships and solutions that bridge the gaps in local health and social care so people can live happy, healthy, productive and fulfilled lives.

SIG (the parent company), and their subsidiaries SIG Penrose, SIG Housing Trust, SIG Equinox, SIG Pathways to Independence and SIG Safe Ground, work to tackle social and health care inequalities and fill gaps in service provision in order to ensure that people in our society have every opportunity to live fulfilled, healthy and constructive lives. 

Through their values they are committed to:

  • Delivering excellence and innovation
  • Promoting equality and mutual respect
  • A belief that positive change is possible
  • Involving and consulting service users
  • Active citizenship and community involvement
  • Valuing staff, harnessing their full potential

They are keen to have an inclusive board, therefore backgrounds and experience is less important than the need for the passion, ambition and interest to help SIG fulfil its mission, which is the primary requirement.  

As mentioned, your background is less important but if you are in IT, Public Relations & Marketing, Operations (maybe you have been or are, a COO), engaged in the medical profession with an emphasis on mental health, a service user or carer, this is of interest to the current board.

The successful candidates will demonstrate: 

  • A clear commitment to the mission and values of the Group
  • The capacity to participate actively and from an informed position
  • A willingness to use personal networks and resources of relevance to their charitable purpose
  • A passion for their work, and to promoting SIG and its subsidiaries as an organisation
  • A firm understanding and respect for the Nolan Principles of Public Life

Meetings are held in the evening at their head office in the Angel/Highbury & Islington area or virtually; there are 4 meetings plus one ‘away day’ each year. The total time commitment is in the region of eight hours per month. 

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.

Closing date for applications: 6 May 2024
Interviews: TBC
