We are looking for someone with building surveying or premises management experience to join our Trustee Board.
We are a registered charity providing professional foot health services for people who are over 60 or unable to manage their own foot care due to disability or a medical condition. Many of our patients have circulatory problems, arthritis or diabetes. 85% of our patients are between 70 and 90 years old. Our services relieve foot pain and discomfort and keep people mobile.
Our premises are ‘older’ too, situated in a converted end of terrace house, and consisting of a smart clinic on the ground floor, and a tenanted flat above, the income from which helps to keep us going.
We need advice on maintaining and improving the building. Someone who can help us to plan ahead so that we can schedule repairs and improvements both internally and externally and who can advise on health and safety matters. You will need experience in dealing with contractors and tradespeople.
Previous experience as a Trustee is not essential, your bricks and mortar planning knowledge would contribute greatly to our Trustee tool box.
Trustee meetings are roughly six a year, and with visits to the premises, you are likely to spend around four hours a month contributing to the charity’s work.
For more information, please do get in touch by Friday 11 June.
