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.


The process is a Signposting service and not a matching service, which means we do all the ground work for you, and present you with a selection of carefully chosen current vacancies, and then it’s over to you to apply to the charity of your choice directly.


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 of £400 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!
