Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They play vital roles and have the ultimate responsibilty for directing the business.

People often become trustees to ‘give something back,’ but there is a two-way benefit; charities benefit from the range of skills and experience that their trustees bring, but trustees can learn and develop new skills that may open up new opportunities for them, as well as meeting people who share their passion.

Currently, MK Play Association and On The Verge (OTV) are both looking for volunteers for to take up vital roles.

MKPA want to welcome some new trustees to their small Board.

The role will include attending monthly Board meetings to discuss financing, staffing and future plans, attending the annual general meeting and representing the Association at external meetings.

Relevant previous experience could include working with children, commercial, managerial or retail work or experience of the voluntary sector.

On The Verge is looking for an experienced and skilled individual for the role of treasurer, who will be responsible for income and funding expenditure and all OTV financial transactions.

Additionally, the organisation is seeking company directors with expertise in legal, HR, project management, publishing and marketing.
