Trustee Vacancy Information
ESRA (Employment Support Retraining Agency) is based in Redhill, Surrey and is a leading provider of specialist employment and training services. We are dedicated to supporting people who experience mental ill-health and their employers in and around Surrey.
By joining ESRA as a Trustee at this exciting time you will help to move the organisation onto the next stage in our development, deciding our future strategy and path while we continue to offer outstanding guidance to individuals with mental health issues in Redhill and across East Surrey and supporting them on their journey back to into work and within work.
Our Trustee board has responsibility for ensuring that ESRA
• complies with its governing documents, charity law and other statutory legislation
• is financially stable and uses its resources for its charitable purpose
• has firm strategic direction
Meetings of the Board are held every other month and you may also be required to get involved in other ways such as supporting research and fact-finding, developing strategy or working with staff and volunteers on projects related to any of your specialisms.
Trustee meetings are currently being held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are reviewing ways by which virtual attendance may be incorporated into our meetings in the future.
We are particularly keen to hear from people with specialised knowledge and experience in finance or legal matters or who is a customer of our Minding Your Business training services.
We would also very much welcome applications from those who have worked in or been beneficiaries of mental health services or who have worked in or with mental health or employability support providers. We are especially interested to hear from anyone who has benefited from ESRA services.
The Trustee role is unsalaried, but hugely rewarding. Out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
