Board Member (Trustee)

Volunteer Marlborough is currently looking for new governance board members to round out our team and help us achieve our goal of supporting volunteering in the community.

Anyone aged 18 or over is welcome to apply. However, Volunteer Marlborough would like to see greater diversity on our board so if you have experience in a sport setting, working with youth or seniors, working in a health setting, or legal experience we would love to hear from you. Ideally you will be well networked, have knowledge of community and voluntary sector or community development.

Meetings are generally held on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 5:45pm at the Volunteer Marlborough offices, with very occasional sub-committee meetings depending on areas of skill or interest. Meetings are approximately 1.5 hours monthly with some additional meeting and events periodically. You will need to be able to attend regular Board meetings and ensure you have read all papers beforehand.

We are a dynamic organisation that is in a strong position in the community and has shown substantial growth over recent years.

Applicants should prepare a CV. A criminal record check will also be required.
