Could you use your skills and experience to help to guide a voluntary organisation in your local area? Voluntary organisations in North Tyneside need people to help them carry out their great work by being part of the group of people who are responsible for the organisation; the trustees.
Trustees make the major decisions affecting the organisation. They are responsible for setting out the strategic direction and ensure that it is well managed and meeting its objectives. The role provides a great opportunity to share your civil service skills and make a difference in your community. Your Guide to Being a Trustee gives more information.
