What will you be doing?

We are looking for an applicants who are team players with marketing or PR experience to join our team of 6 Trustees. There are also 7 staff working for the charity lead by our Director of Services. Our trustees are hands on and get involved in business planning, service funding strategy and implementation and risk assessments. Our trustees are responsible for overseeing the governance of the charity. They have a duty to ensure compliance along with a duty of care and prudence. Training and mentoring can be provided. The charity is looking to expand and needs to raise its profile and awareness with the public, potential funders and referrers. The bulk of our referrals come through the police, social services, borough councils and housing associations. However, we are increasingly getting self referrals through our website.  

What are we looking for?

We looking for a Trustee with the skills and experience to advice and  assist our staff in accessing those in need in Surrey to make them aware of our services. This will likely include improving our website, and raising our presence online and in social media.

What difference will you make?

Mediation Surrey provides an important public service to the residents of Surrey. It is largely funded by the Police, local, borough and County Councils and Housing Associations because of the complementary role it plays in helping these organisations to attain their goals. Specifically, community mediation helps solve neighbourhood disputes and issues of anti-social behaviour before they can escalate into more serious problems. Intergenerational mediation helps solve family disputes, typically between a teenager and their parents, before it becomes an issue for social services. Support coaching builds resilience in victims of anti-social behaviour to help them cope with the situation.  We expect this trustee to be a key player in developing the strategy for the growth of the charity by helping us identify need for our services in the community from those clients and referrers we have not yet reached.
