Hopscotch is looking for Trustees from the London Borough of Camden with Legal or Finance expertise

We are a community led organisation working with BAME women and families in Camden and the surrounding areas. We have a turnover of about £1.5m have over 90 staff members doing incredible work with the most vulnerable people.

We work on a number of issues including welfare support, advocacy, employment skills service and Violence Against Women and Girls. We tend to support those who are hard to reach and offer bespoke services, suited to the individual and her needs. Our expertise in understanding the barriers BAME women face has helped us form a unique approach which is person centred and effective.

We are looking to recruit a Trustee with legal experience so that we can safely and steadily grow our services and continue to provide essential support to our community.

The Trustees meets quarterly and work on the strategic vision of the charity as well as supporting the staff with matters including quality assurance, safeguarding and policies, financial oversight, fundraising. We have annual away days to discuss the broader needs of the community and the wider BAME women’s agenda, to ensure Hopscotch’s work remain relevant to the women who need support.

We have Sub Committees which help specific services stay on track. There are many other opportunities to get involved based on skills and availability. It is a highly engaged team with a range of expertise which enjoys working together, with our Chief Executive ensuring a very manageable workload for each Trustee.

We welcome all applications and particularly look forward to hearing from people with legal and/or finance experience with either a working knowledge or keen interest in the voluntary and community sector.

If you are passionate about raising the standard and shoring up the future of Hopscotch please consider joining us by sending your CV and a cover letter to our Chief Executive Benaifer Bhandari– it could be the fulfilling role you’ve been looking for.
