Trustee Opportunity for Autism Charity

Salary: voluntary

Closing Date: 31 Dec 2019

Company Name: Autism at Kingwood

Nature of the Company: Autism at Kingwood helps people with autism and Asperger Syndrome to live the lives they choose. We provide highly skilled support across Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire, delivering person-centred services and finding solutions for complex and challenging situations.

Responsibilities: The impending rotation of Trustees has created opportunities for interested parties to join the Autism at Kingwood Board. Whilst we welcome applications from all individuals who feel that have skills to so share, an individual with experience or interest in Human Resources, fundraising or communications, or a clinical background may be of benefit to the charity.
The Board meets in Reading four times a year and the charity’s governance also benefits from sub-committee meetings.


Experience: We are looking for someone with a track record of success in strategic and operational leadership and experience as a non-executive director, Trustee or Chair. You will have a keen understanding of governance and the ability to combine good judgement with excellent strategic and communication skills. You may already be a Chair of Trustees, or looking for the opportunity to chair your first board. You will lead the Board of Trustees to ensure that the charity is properly governed and managed with a key focus on maximising the ‘quality of life for autistic adults’.
With the capacity to think creatively and offer fresh perspective you will bring the ability to engage at all levels internally and externally.
