We are expanding our Trustee Board

If you’re passionate about helping people in the local community and you want to help change people’s lives for the better, then we have a fantastic opportunity to join our current Board of Trustees. 

We are seeking up to three additional Trustees to join the board who will bring in their experience and expertise to help maximise the impact of the work carried out by the charity. As part of the board, you will share responsibility for offering us strategic direction, leadership and a commitment to good governance.

Good Company (Surrey) is a local registered charity tackling poverty in Epsom, Ewell, Banstead, Tadworth, Leatherhead and surrounding areas. Our mission is to see a community free from poverty, where everyone can afford life’s essentials.

We welcome applicants with various talent and experience; however, we are particularly interested in those that have:

  • Lived experience of poverty
  • Legal sector experience
  • HR experience
  • Charity development experience

We are looking for candidates that are willing to devote the necessary time and effort to ensure the charity is supporting the community at its best.  We were founded on Christian values of being compassionate, kind, trusting, engaged, non-judgemental and resourcing. Not every member of the team is a Christian, but we all subscribe to the same values and hope that new team members will too.

We are committed to diversifying our board of trustees so we can better understand how different people experience poverty and be better equipped to meet the wants and needs of our communities. We encourage applications from people with lived experience of poverty and from minoritised ethnic, disabled and LGBTQ+ communities. We will provide practical guidance for those unfamiliar with the trustee role and application process via a Meet the Trustees session (details below), and successful candidates will be supported through an induction scheme once in role.

Time Commitment: Six trustee meetings per year – 7.30pm to 9.00pm on a weekday evening, usually in person in an Epsom location. In between meetings, trustees may additionally be called on to provide advice and support to staff typically by reviewing and responding to plans and policies via email.

More information: If you have any queries or would like to know more about the trustee role, please sign up for one of our ‘Trustee Opportunities’ information sessions:

In-person at 7.00 -8.00 pm 22 November https://www.eventbrite.com/e/450586685907

Online 7.00-8.00 pm 24 November https://www.eventbrite.com/e/450676504557
