Could you be an ECF trustee?

3rd September 2020

We would like to recruit new trustees to contribute to our work and help deliver our 5-year strategy.

As one of the UK’s leading community foundations, our mission is to inspire philanthropy and charitable giving – matching people, ideas, resources and needs to make a lasting difference. Each year we inspire charitable giving from donors in Essex and support our local communities with around £4 million of grant funding.

As a charity for Essex, we want to recruit new trustees who live or work in Essex, Southend or Thurrock, and we are particularly interested to hear from people from the south and west of the county.

We are looking for people who have experience in the charity sector, in accountancy in financial services or investment management, in marketing and communications.

We also want to ensure that our board reflects the diversity of those who form the communities that we support and so we particularly welcome interest and applications from people of colour, people under 40 years of age, and LGBT+ people.

This could be your first trustee role, you may have been a trustee before or are currently a trustee of another organisation. Whatever your level of experience, we would love to hear from you. Read our Trustee Recruitment Pack for more information and how to apply.

To deadline to apply is Friday 2 October.
