Mustard Tree are one of the most established charities in the North of England supporting those facing poverty and homelessness. We have over 25 years of experience helping people across greater Manchester where our compassionate and intelligent approach, creates a safe space, a community of hope and aspiration, opportunity and belonging where together we lift each other’s confidence and skills. Our work impacts the lives of thousands of people every year, who are the most vulnerable and hard to engage with groups in our society. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with our team!
As our organisation grows, we are now looking for three new trustees to help us ensure we fulfil our duties to beneficiaries, deliver our vision and mission, and sustainably grow for the future. You will have a strong empathy with our mission and values, and will want to inspire people to change lives for those who are impacted by homelessness and marginalisation. You will have a proven track record of sound judgement and decision making in your field, together with (ideally) experience of operating on (or within) a charitable board, public sector or commercial organisation.
To be effective, Mustard Tree needs to understand a wide range of practices, sectors and perspectives, and is seeking to enhance the diversity, skill-sets and experiences of the Board. With that in mind, the trustee recruitment will be a rolling programme over the next 12 months in order to give the charity time to attract specific expertise.
