The organisation

The Severn Trent Water Charitable Trust fund has an exciting opportunity for two new Trustees to join their Board. Established over 20 years ago with the strong sponsorship of Severn Trent Water the Trust assists over 15,000 people each year with some form of advice or financial support. The work of the Trust can be truly life-changing and at each Board meeting we discuss how we can make a difference.

Throughout the COVID pandemic the Trust remained strong with the excellent support of Auriga Services Limited. Auriga Services is owned by the Trust. It is a separate trading subsidiary run by a professional Board on behalf of the Trust. Employing over 85 people Auriga provides important debt advice and welfare benefit services for other utility trusts, the NHS and local authorities.

The Trust is now seeking to improve the diversity of the Trust Board to reflect the diverse communities across the Midlands.

"The Trust is committed to ensuring that the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion underpin its approach to governance. We are looking for people from a wide variety of backgrounds and from all sections of the community. You will have a strong commitment to fulfill the responsibility of overseeing the running of the trust."

Chair of Trustees, Clive Stone.

The Trustee Board meets formally 4-6 times a year and you will need to devote time to reading Board papers; there will also be other ad hoc meetings to attend. Experience and knowledge of debt advice or financial hardship sectors would be beneficial. In addition to Board work you will also be expected to undertake training and a comprehensive induction is provided. Overall this leads to a commitment of about 12 days a year; if successfully appointed the initial term is 3 years, subject to a maximum of 12 years.

Applications are by CV and these must be accompanied by a covering letter explaining why you think you are suitable for this role including the specific skills and experience you will bring to add value.

We particularly encourage applications from diverse backgrounds, and understand the importance of different voices, experiences, perspectives to enable us to make a difference.

Please apply by 22nd March 2022.
