Being a trustee is a voluntary role and as such, trustees receive no remuneration. However reasonable expenses can be claimed, for attendance at board meetings and other related events.
Trustees are appointed for up to three terms of office of three years and are expected to have a commitment to the mission of Designability and the ability to meet the time requirements. These are eight two-hour Board or sub-committee meetings a year and an annual Away Day.
Applications are sought from individuals, particularly from those with lived experience of disability, who have the skills to join both the Board and the Finance & Governance Committee, and full details are provided in the recruitment pack. While previous non-executive or similar experience is desirable it is not essential.
The closing date for applications is Sunday 13 February 2022.
