Trustee Recruitment

Barnet Reuse Centre Limited – Registered Charity No 1140541

4 Queens Parade Close, London, N11 3FY

Voluntary – unpaid

 

Have you got what it takes to become Trustee of a very small charity?

Your commitment and energy could make a huge difference to the people and families we support.

We would like to expand our Board of Trustees and it is an exciting time to join us. We are currently developing our new 2-year plan. Some elements of our plans are to relocate to new premises, obtain funding for a new collections and deliveries van and a bursary fund to enable us to assist more individuals and families we support in furniture poverty which you have a key role in shaping and influencing.

We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have a background or advanced knowledge in:

  • HR and/or Finance
  • Property management/re-development or procurement
  • Fundraising
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Environmental issues/climate change

This list is not exhaustive, so if you have knowledge or skills not listed, please do get in touch with us.

 

Being a Trustee can be immensely rewarding, providing both expected and unexpected opportunities for personal development. The Trustees have the ultimate responsibility for the charity and lead on the development and strategy of Barnet Furniture Centre and while you bring your skills and energy to leading the charity, you will also find you are gaining new ideas, networks, experience and knowledge. By becoming a Trustee, you have a significant opportunity to help shape the strategic direction of the charity to ensure that it continues to support the community, alleviate furniture poverty, improve lives and help protect the environment. 

About us

Barnet Furniture Centre (BFC) is an independent furniture and electrical re-use project set up in 2011, and a not-for-profit registered charity, that brings multiple benefits to the local community and surrounding boroughs.

 

Our mission - is to alleviate poverty by providing low-cost good quality reusable furniture and electrical goods to low-income households; creating opportunities to enable individuals to improve their circumstances; improving the environment by diverting waste from landfill.

  • The advancement of education, vocational training or retraining and the provision of work experience particularly among unemployed people or people with special needs in order to enhance their prospects of employment, independence and quality of life. The majority of our volunteers have continued into paid employment since leaving the project.
  • The protection and preservation of the environment for the public benefit by:

(a)  The promotion of waste reduction, re-use, reclamation, recycling, use of recycled products,

(b)  Partaking in national and community schemes and projects for recycling and reusing materials, components, and resources.

We actively encourage applicants from a diverse background to apply.

 

Time commitment

There are generally four meetings per year with the flexibility of being held on-line or in person at the Centre. There are additional meetings throughout the year, such as the AGM and Trustee Away Days which is an opportunity to brainstorm or discuss emerging or urgent topics.

Remuneration: This is a voluntary position and therefore does not pay a salary.
