The Settlement is looking to appoint a number of new trustees/volunteers to help guide us through an exciting period of growth and change as we develop two new community venues in Ladywood and Kingstanding

Since 1899, Birmingham Settlement has been working to create opportunity and choice – connecting and empowering people through action, activities, and shared learning to build and sustain wellbeing for all. 

Voluntary role
Meetings every 6 weeks

The Settlement provides services and activities that support people to overcome the barriers they face by taking positive action on the issues that impact on their lives. We are now undergoing an exciting period of change and growth including the development of two new sites as we gear up for the post-Covid-19 era. As part of our development, we are now looking to expand our Board and appoint a number of new trustees including one with finance experience, to support us from a governance and strategic perspective, to help us to continue to deliver the safe, high-quality services our people want and expect.

Our Board currently meets every 6 weeks and these are voluntary, governance roles within the Settlement. We are ideally looking for people with an awareness of the issues facing communities of need, an understanding of community development and the charity sector along with an interest and commitment to the aims and values of the Settlement.

If you wish to be considered please submit your CV to [email protected] using the title ‘Trustee application’ and explain why you would like to be a trustee of the Settlement. We aim to respond to applications within one week of submission.

For an informal chat please ring Theresa Gniadkowski on 0121 250 0777.
