Trustees are required to join CCIL to provide support with ensuring that the organisation has a clear vision, mission and strategic direction.
Our Trustees focus is on the performance of the organisation and for its “corporate” behaviour, making sure that the organisation complies with all legal and regulatory requirements. Acting as guardians of the organisations assets; both tangible and intangible. Taking all due care over their security, deployment and proper application, whilst ensuring that the organisations governance is of the highest standard.

It is estimated that the Trustee will have to commit a minimum of 3-4 days per month in order to fulfil their role. Some of this may be in the evenings or weekends and will be spread over a number of meetings. Preparation and reading time may be additional.
The Trustee will be appointed for a fixed term of two years, renewable for a further two years.
The Trustee will receive induction training along with further training and support throughout their appointment in order to enable them to fulfil their role to the best of their abilities. There will be a 6-month shadowing opportunity with one of the current Trustees.
The Trustee will be expected to commit to undertaking regular training during their time on the CCIL Board of Trustees. This may be in addition to the minimum commitment of 4 days per month requirement.

We are particularly looking for individuals with legal and marketing experience. We are an equal opportunities employer. As an user-led organisation, run and controlled by disabled people, for disabled people, applications are particularly welcome from skilled disabled people.
