Irish Community Care – Trustees

Irish Community Care (ICC) is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. They currently have vacancies for Trustees to join their professional and forward-thinking Trustee Board. As a Trustee, you will contribute to the further success of the organisation, enhance existing skills and widen discipline areas.

ICC aims to ensure well informed, empowered and vibrant Irish and Irish Traveller communities in the North West. They have over 50 years of experience in community engagement, service provision, asset-based community development, partnership, collaboration and strategic representation.

They currently have vacancies for three inspiring people to join the Trustee Board. They wish to recruit applicants particularly, but not exclusively, with legal, financial, human resource or social justice expertise. An Irish connection is desirable, but it is not essential. They are keen to recruit first time Trustees who seek governance experience in their career development. Trustees are expected to have an interest in, or direct knowledge of, the charity sector and support organisations.

The role of the Trustee is to provide excellent governance; operate at a strategic level; oversee the organisation and hold it to account. Trustees are responsible for setting the mission and direction of the organisation, ensuring its continuing success and sustainability.

To become a member of the ICC Board you will be required to demonstrate a strong commitment to the purpose and values of the organisation and to offer the skills you have towards their common goal.

ICC requires all Trustees to attend 6 Trustee Board meetings each year and to participate in the same number of Committee meetings. Meetings of the Board normally take place early in the evening. There are occasional ‘away days’ and further duties, but the main responsibility outside formal meetings is to give support via email exchange. Formal meetings can be via Zoom as well as in person.

For an informal conversation about the Trustee role in the first instance and details about the next steps, please contact Breege McDaid, Director via email: breege.mcdaid@irishcc.net or by phone: 01512373987.

This role is subject to a DBS check.
