Independent Lives is looking to grow our Board and are now recruiting people with experience and passion in the following sectors: legal, social care, HR and finance.

We also always want to hear from people with lived experience, so if you have support needs or are a carer do get in touch.

This is your opportunity to work alongside a vibrant and diverse group of Trustees and be an integral part of the team.

If you would like to make a real difference to a local charity supporting local disabled people to live independently, then we would love to hear from you!

To find out more about being a Trustee read the information pack or get in touch with David Streeter by email at david.streeter@independentlives.org

We are still recruiting to this role despite the COVID-19 emergency because it's important to our future. We would really like to hear from you if you're interested, even if it may not be practical for us to meet in person for some time. We could talk by phone or video link initially so you can find out more about the role and if it might be right for you. 

Skills

If you have experience in the legal sector, social care, HR, accountancy or finance we would love to hear from you.

Benefits

You will have strategic input in the direction of a dynamic charity. Your time will directly benefit disabled people, and people with long term health conditions, of all ages. You will learn new skills, be supported by other board members and the chief executive, and help shape an award-winning charity.

Practical Considerations

We are based in Worthing and you would need to commit to 4-6 meetings per year, which are held during the day and in our office.

When do I need to be available?
