Detailed description

Girlguiding Anglia is looking to recruit a Trustee (External) to join its Executive Committee


As a trustee you will contribute to shaping the future direction for Girlguiding Anglia and be responsible for ensuring the charity meets all legal obligations. We are open to applications from all over the Anglia region from non Girlguiding members. You must be eligible to serve as a trustee of a charity, including being aged 18 or over.


To complement our existing skills we are particularly interested in individuals with experience in one of the following areas, although those with other skill-sets are also very welcome to apply:


  • digital media
  • business development

Although much of our work takes place within a national context, there is still huge scope for developing a distinctive regional flavour of what we offer to our members.


Please note: eligible candidates will be asked to complete an application form.

  • An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship.
  • An ability to work effectively as a member of the executive committee team.
  • A commitment to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

  1. To provide leadership and to be responsible for the strategic direction and ultimate delivery of guiding in Anglia region.
