If you have the skill, prepare to share them now!
Alpha Grove Center is a registered charity and community center based in the Isle of Dogs area of Tower Hamlets, As part of the voluntary sector, our aspiration is to be a vibrant community center delivering high quality facilities, services and projects for the promotion of the social, mental, physical and spiritual well-being of people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and faiths in the Isle of Dogs and wider Tower Hamlets community. As a well-respected community resource, we provide facilities and services for a wide range of tenant and user groups
We have recently gone through a restructuring and are actively seeking new ways to serve our community.
We are looking for new Trustees who can make a significant contribution to the Board by being able to share their knowledge, expertise and experience. Trustees are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, its financial health and the governance of its activities; acting always in the best interests of Alpha Grove; working together to exercise the same duty of care that a prudent person would apply if looking after the affairs of someone for whom they have responsibility.
Successful applicants must be able to attend 6 Board Meetings (evenings) either in person or by proxy and are encouraged to participate, lead or contribute to ad hoc working groups of trustees and staff. In addition to reading papers and preparing for meetings/conference calls, Trustees may be called upon for specific advice if they have particular expertise in a given area.
Becoming a Trustee offers the opportunity for both personal and professional development and is highly rewarding. You will be part of a team of skilled people who are passionate about giving up their own time to help others. Training will be provided where necessary and you will be reimbursed for any expenses incurred in connection with your role.
We are particularly keen to hear from people who live or work locally with a background in general management, Legal, finance and marketing.
If you are interested, please call Ugo Ikokwu on 07983964903 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
