PH Holt Foundation Vacancy: Trustees

Due to the retirement of longstanding trustees, the PH Holt Foundation is looking to recruit three new trustees to its board.

The PH Holt Foundation, incorporating the Holt Education Trust, is an independent grant-maker working to create a better future for the people of Merseyside. The organisation provides grants to small and medium-sized charities that seek to change lives, whether through community activities, education, the arts, heritage or environmental programmes.

Due to the retirement of longstanding trustees, the foundation is looking to recruit three new trustees to its board and welcomes applications from individuals who share our values and commitment to making a positive difference in communities across Merseyside.

The organisation is particularly keen to strengthen the board’s expertise and skill base with professionals from the private, public and charity worlds, with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Financial management and accountancy
  • Governance and risk management
  • Legal expertise in relation to the voluntary sector
  • Investment management
  • Marketing and digital communications
  • Experience and knowledge from working in the field of education, the arts or community programmes

The role of trustee is a voluntary position and reasonable expenses are reimbursed for board related work. Board meetings are held four times a year in Liverpool during business hours. Trustees also participate in one or more of the delegated sub-committees which meet as required on Grants, Investments, Finance and Risk Management. Occasional visits to Merseyside charities funded by the Foundation are also part of the role.

If you would like to apply, send a brief covering letter outlining why you would like to be a PH Holt Foundation Board Member and the skills you would bring to the role (maximum two sides of A4), together with your current CV, providing details of two referees who could be contacted following interview.

Email your application for the attention of Ian Bakewell, Chair, at chair@phholtfoundation.org.uk.

Deadline: Friday 15 June 2018, 9am
Interviews: Weeks commencing 2 and 9 July 2018, for a start date in September 2018
