Trustee Recruitment at Irish Community Care


Recruitment to Trustee Board:

Irish Community Care (ICC) is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.

We currently have vacancies for Trustees to join our professional and forward-thinking Trustee Board. As a Trustee you will contribute to the further success of the organisation, enhance existing skills and widen discipline areas.

ICC aims to ensure well informed, empowered and vibrant Irish and Irish Traveller
communities in the North West. We have over 50 years’ experience of community
engagement, service provision, asset based community development, partnership,
collaboration and strategic representation.

We currently have vacancies for three inspiring people to join the Trustee Board. We wish
to recruit applicants particularly, but not exclusively, with legal, financial, human resource or social justice expertise. An Irish connection is desirable, but it is not essential. We are keen to recruit first time Trustees who seek governance experience in their career development.

Trustees are expected to have an interest in, or direct knowledge of, the charity sector and support organisations.

The role of the Trustee is to provide excellent governance; operate at a strategic level;
oversee the organisation and hold it to account. Trustees are responsible for setting the
mission and direction of the organisation, ensuring its continuing success and sustainability.

To become a member of ICC Board you will be required to demonstrate a strong
commitment to the purpose and values of the organisation and to offer the skills you have towards our common goal.

The Time Commitment ICC requires all Trustees to attend 6 Trustee Board meetings each year and to participate in the same number of Committee meetings. Meetings of the Board normally take place early in the evening. There are occasional ‘away days’ and further duties, but the main responsibility outside formal meetings is to give support via email exchange.

Formal meetings can be via Zoom as well as in person.
