Trustees – Finchley Charities

Join 500 years of History

THE FINCHLEY CHARITIES is both an Almshouse charity and a registered provider, and has been serving people in the London Borough of Barnet since 1488. With roots in the area as deep as ours, you won’t be surprised to hear that we care very deeply about the local area and the people in our community. Through our 172 purpose-built homes providing high quality housing for older people, and our grants programme and allotments, we feel that we have the resources and drive to make a real difference to the community we serve.

Location(s): North London
Closing date: 8 Nov 2021
Salary: Unremunerated

About the role

Despite our deep roots and long history, we consider ourselves forward-looking and a future-focused charity responsive to the changing needs of the older people in the area, and we know that the housing for older residents we provide is very much needed today.

We are looking for four well-rounded new Trustees to join our board. You will share our passion for local delivery and improving resident engagement, and for excellence in governance. While we are open to your sector background, we are particularly interested in hearing from those with senior experience in finance, HR, customer engagement, or property/housing development.

For these roles, we are open to this being your first board position and we offer support for new Trustees. We would especially like to hear from you if you have a connection to the Borough of Barnet, but we also welcome interest from those outside the area.

We consider it vital that our Board reflects the communities we serve and would welcome applications from a wide range of backgrounds.
