Do you have the business and governance skills that could make a difference to your local community and prevent homelessness in Leeds and Wakefield?

Our trustees are an amazing team of people who guide and lead TLA, keeping us financially and strategically secure.
We are recruiting Trustees, hoping to increase diversity amongst our Board Members, so our Board can reflect our multicultural workforce and clients.
We currently have vacancies on our Board and would welcome applications from people with experience in finance management and leadership.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of our organisation.
Being a trustee means making sure that we are carrying out the purposes for which we were set up, and supporting the charity in planning for a successful future. It means ensuring that TLA abides by the law, manages its assets properly and safeguards the organisation’s reputation. Trustees don’t usually do the day-to-day running of the charity. Instead, they play the role of a ‘critical friend’ to the Chief Executive by giving support and advice.
Remuneration: The role of the Trustee is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although expenses for travel may be claimed.
