Self Employed Counselling Supervisor – East London Rape Crisis

Trustee

key objectives:

nia, the charity for women and girls escaping male violence, is looking for new members to join our board of trustees.

For more than 40 years, nia has provided high quality, women-led services across north and east London. We operate two refuges, run the East London Rape Crisis helpline, and offer independent advocacy for victims of domestic and sexual violence to guide them through the courts.

Board members help set the organisation’s strategic goals, and provide support and oversight to the CEO and senior staff. They advise on fundraising, financial management, media relations and communication, and sit on interview panels when nia is hiring new staff. Trustees are expected to attend four board meetings a year, and may also work on individual projects or in working groups.

Our trustees work on a voluntary basis and are not expected to contribute financially to the organisation – all we want is your time.

The role of the trustee is to govern the organisation, provide leadership and overall direction; to ensure the organisation has a clear vision and aims and effective strategies to achieve these; and to ensure compliance with all relevant legislation.

We would like to develop the skills on the board of trustees and ensure that trustees are representative of the diverse communities that we service so we’re particularly looking for feminists who have accountancy qualifications, and/or women who have been subjected to men’s violence, Black and minoritised women, lesbians, disabled women and young women, but please don’t be put off if you don’t fall in to any of these categories.

CV’s will not be accepted. Applications can be returned via email to:
administrator@niaendingviolence.org.uk or by post in a sealed envelope marked “Private & Confidential” to Rachel Evans, nia, P.O Box 58203, London, N1 3XP.
