LCVS is looking for new Trustees

LCVS was founded in 1909, when the Lord Mayor of Liverpool called a meeting with Liverpool’s vast network of charities to discuss creating a body that would help them co-operate with one another and with the public authorities.

LCVS works with organisations across the City (and occasionally wider) to ensure that we support the voluntary sector, and our public and private sector partners, and the people they work with, increasingly working in collaboration towards common aims.

Due to the retirement of several long standing Trustees LCVS is seeking to recruit between 2 – 4 new Trustees to help us develop and move the organisation forward in these challenging and exciting times.

Trustees will need to commit to 6 Trustee meetings a year and serve on one of our governance committees (Grants Committee, Investment Committee etc), which meet 4 times a year. We are looking for resilient individuals who are prepared to represent the organisation alongside a committed leadership and management team. Interested candidates should have an interest in promoting and developing services within the City utilising the unique talents of the voluntary sector. In particular we would welcome applications from :

  • an arts and culture background
  • active within the BRM community
  • grassroots representative
  • a good knowledge of city region issues/city region perspective
  • active in equalities work (disability etc)
