Volunteer opportunities at Beacon
Beacon is a small Bradford-based charity that runs four projects providing practical support to asylum seekers. Most of its work is carried out by teams of very dedicated volunteers. In 2015 Beacon celebrated its 10th anniversary.
Help develop and support our work – join the Trustees!
Beacon is seeking additional trustees to help shape the future of the organisation through a period of significant change, growth and development. Beacon is looking for skilled and committed individuals to join the unpaid Board of Trustees. The Board is collectively responsible for the governance and strategic direction of Beacon. Successful applicants will be expected to take an active role in ensuring the organisation’s work towards its key missions, objectives and goals.
Beacon is especially interested in applicants with board/management committee-level experience and expertise in one or more of the following: fundraising, legal issues, equal opportunities, HR, marketing, strategic planning, issues facing asylum seekers and campaigning.
Trustees are asked to commit an average of 1- 2 days each month to the organisation, which will include attending board meetings, possibly sub groups and occasional events. They will be expected to remain well informed about the organisation and its activities and take a personal interest in and collective responsibility for its development and sustainability.
Ideally new board members will have previous experience in a similar role and some understanding of the voluntary sector and small charities.
