Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) are looking for a Legal Trustee to join our board.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, developing the CLAPA’s aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines.
CLAPA is the only national charity supporting people and families affected by cleft lip and/or palate in the UK. Our vision is of a society where everyone affected by cleft feels supported, connected and empowered to take control wherever they are on their cleft journey.
The Board is looking for a new Trustee who is aligned to the ethos of the charity and would enjoy the opportunity to contribute their expertise to provide robust and dynamic governance to ensure we achieve our ambitions and remain financially solvent. We would like to enhance our Trustee Board with legal expertise from either a barrister or a solicitor.
In the role of Trustee, you will help inspire, set and maintain the charity’s vision, mission and values, as well as develop the strategy, and ensure compliance and accountability for finances, legal and governmental obligations. Previous experience in a Trustee role is not essential as a full induction will be provided.
Taking on the role of a Trustee is a significant undertaking. An appropriate time commitment will be required for the preparatory work required in between meetings as well as attendance at the meetings.
Contact CLAPA CEO Claire Cunniffe at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the role or the application process.
