Job Description

The Severn Trent Trust Fund is a major charity serving the Midlands. Its income last year was £3.5million, donated by Severn Trent Water to help their customers who are experiencing financial hardship.

The Trust, which has been established over 20 years is now looking to recruit two new trustees.

The Trust wholly owns a trading subsidiary Auriga Services Ltd which in addition to managing the Severn Trent Trust Fund, manages the trust funds of Thames Water and United Utilities. It also runs a debt advice and welfare benefits service for various clients including the NHS.

We are looking for people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Specifically, we wish one person to have knowledge and experience in the debt advice sector or working in/with financially challenged communities, and another with accountancy and financial experience.

Most of all we are looking for people with the time and energy to devote to being responsible trustees to ensure good governance and oversee the running of the trust.

You will need to attend four half day formal meetings per year plus other ad-hoc meetings.

Your application should be in the form of your CV and an accompanying letter stating why you would like to be a trustee of this particular trust, and the specific skills that you will bring to add value.

Key information and specific brief document about this appointment can be found at the Severn Trent Trust Fund website.

Please apply by 6th January 2020. Please keep either the afternoon of 14th or the day of 16th January 2020 available for interview.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
