We hope to receive applications from all walks of life and across RMC’s area of operation.
Please note that only shortlisted candidates would be contacted.
What are we looking for?
Ideal candidates will have considerable experience of board membership either in the charity sector or similar roles in other sectors. Candidates should have in depth knowledge of governance related matters.
What difference will you make?
RMC has a very broad remit and provides vital support to thousands of refugees and migrants living in the West Midlands region. It currently has 5 offices across its area of operations, approx. 130 employees and dozens of volunteers.
As a trustee of RMC, you will be able to see rather clearly the impact RMC’s work makes in the lives of its beneficiaries. You will offer pragmatic and level-headed governance and overview to an established regional charity with a highly skilled and experienced management team and appropriate infrastructure in place.
