Trustee - St John's Winchester Charity

Winchester, Hampshire
Closing on 22 July 2024

We are working in partnership with St John’s Winchester Charity, (SJW) which is now looking to recruit a new Trustee, to join their lively, engaged, collegiate Board, 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. 

SJW is looking to appoint an individual with experience in Domiciliary Care, specifically the commercial aspects of running such a service.  

Along with the specific skill set they are looking for 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.

The role of Trustee can be enormously interesting, rewarding, and enjoyable for someone who is 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 weekday 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.

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.

Hours: Meet four times a year, and hold an annual away day in the autumn

Closing date for applications: 22nd July 2024
Charisma interviews must be completed on 25th July 2024, prior to shortlisting

Interviews: TBC
