Trustee Vacancies

Humber and Wolds Rural Action (HWRA) is a charity that works to tackle a range of rural issues across the East Riding of Yorkshire, North and North East Lincolnshire.

HWRA is involved in the development of a wide range of initiatives designed to regenerate and revitalise rural areas and enhance the quality of life for rural communities. Projects in the community currently focus on access to services, rural community buildings, transport, broadband, community development, rural energy and renewable energy solutions, training and work on strengthening the voluntary sector in the region. HWRA also works at a strategic level nationally, regionally and locally, with partners in the statutory and voluntary sectors.

HWRA is a registered charity (Company Limited by Guarantee), formed in 1975, that is one of 38 Rural Community Councils, nationally supported by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE), who together form the Rural Community Action Network (RCAN). The shared aim of the network is to promote, develop and support sustainable rural communities. Through ACRE we work closely with DEFRA, providing an important rural voice at national level.

The charity is governed by a Board of Trustees who give their time voluntarily to lead the organisation. The trustees are responsible for overseeing the work of the charity; setting the strategic direction, ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, and making sure that the charity’s funding and resources are used effectively for the benefit of the communities HWRCC supports. The Board of Trustees meets on a quarterly basis to discuss the running of the charity, with the day to day management undertaken by the employed staff team.

Between them, the Trustees possess a variety of skills, for example, business experience, managing finances, rural expertise, charity fundraising, marketing, health and safety, project management and training. HWRA is currently recruiting new Trustees with experience in one or more of these areas or any other area you feel may be of benefit to the charity. It doesn’t matter if you have no experience of being a trustee as inductions are offered to all new trustees. 

If you feel you have the necessary skills, drive and commitment, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact us to find out more or download the application pack from the HWRA web site.
