The Getting On Board signposting service is designed to help you find a Board Level Volunteering role to suit your professional and personal aims and interests. Find out here how the service works and how to apply for a place.

 

There are two tiers available:

 

1. THE SILVER SIGNPOSTING SERVICE - £500

Two lists of bespoke charity board vacancies based on a phone diagnostic of your needs and interests, followed by support for you to apply for relevant vacancies.

 

2. THE GOLD SIGNPOSTING SERVICE - £1,200

For time-poor senior execs. As silver, but we also write up to seven applications on your behalf.

 

You'll also get access to a range of support materials including tips for writing a cover letter and CV for a board-level voluntering position, sample documents and insights from charities about what they look for in trustees.

 

Getting on Board is a registered charity, and, although we do not make a profit, we need to cover our running costs. Therefore we have to charge a fee for our sign-posting service which is payable before the process begins. Often, employers will reimburse you for this cost, so it’s certainly worth asking.

 

To get started - complete our online application form.

http://gettingonboard.formstack.com/forms/candidate_form We will then be in touch to arrange an interview. We screen applicants for levels of commitment to becoming a trustee. If you want to know more about the trustee role first, why not come to one of our events?

 

Please email us if you require more information (info@gettingonboard.org).
