What will you be doing?

We are looking for someone to add legal skills to our board. We employ solicitors as required but we still like to have a legal mind on the board to inform the thinking and direction of the charity.   Currently we have a capable CEO and six Trustees with a good mix of skills:

A Knight (Educationalist/horsewoman) R Wilkin DL (Ex Military, extensive charity board experience) J Davies (Senior Youth Practitioner) E Eaton (BHS Stage 5 Coach) S Lynch (Senior manager NHS Mental health) R Cole (Chartered Accountant) Patrons: Lord Knight of Weymouth (Former Minister for Education) Martin Clunes (Actor, Presenter)

What are we looking for?

Solicitor or Barrister

What difference will you make?

We are recognised as sector leaders in equine-assisted interventions, and in the 3rd sector more broadly for our commitment to research and evaluation. This and the success of our programmes is moving us towards more rapid growth and replication. Having someone on the board with legal credentials will improve our resilience and sustainability.
