Our Trustees and Staff
An Introduction to Our Trustees
Those involved in the Job Club are keen to engage and help support, not only our members but engage with the wider business community, to help support people back to work and find new ways to deliver our service.
In most cases, our trustees have been long standing business volunteers who have helped deliver quality, professional sessions over the years and made the Job Club what it is today.
Some of the reasons we took the decision to put in place trustees is really to help us to:
- Manage the increasing success of the Job Club
- A recognised structure for business engagement
- Develop and deliver future plans and projects
- Gain more traction with businesses
- Demonstrate our commitment to growth
- Identify ways to gain funding to become more sustainable
- Engage some fresh ideas, experience, knowledge and support
We remain free and open to those who are 'in job transition' or 'at risk of redundancy' who 'want to work'.
We became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in April 2014 and today have 6 trustees on the board. Recently we have been joined by our new Administrator for which we are most appreciative of her valuable time. Our vision is to become a recognised community service offering a talent resource for local business to increase employment opportunities and connect members to business. Our philospphy is, we take a business-led, coaching style approach to guide members who already have enough people telling them what to do, to help them retake control of their situation
