Trustee  

We are looking for people willing to bring energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to the role, and who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our board.  

Our trustees play a vital role in making sure that Disability Nottinghamshire achieves its core purpose. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity, whilst ensuring that Disability Nottinghamshire has a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision. They also support and challenge the executive team to enable Disability Nottinghamshire to grow and thrive.  

Trustee Board members have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals.  

You do not need previous experience – we will provide a full induction and training.
