Help us to make the difference for those in need. West Lancashire Freemasons’ Charity is recruiting for a Director with a legal background required – applications from non-Freemasons are welcomed.
Who we are – We are a charity entirely funded by Freemasons in West Lancashire (we don’t do any other fundraising). The considerable assets that we have reflect Freemasons’ generosity in the Masonic guiding principles of Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity.
What we do – As well as supporting our members and their families in times of need, we also provide financial assistance to other charitable causes in our communities, particularly, but not exclusively, relating to educational opportunities for young people.
Who we would like to join us as a Director – Our Directors, are essentially unpaid trustees, giving their time freely for the good of our charity. We want to be inclusive, reflecting the diversity of the backgrounds of those that we support, so applications to join our Board are welcome from all who meet the criteria not just Freemasons.
What skills we are looking for from applicants – We have a good cross-section of skills on our Board, with Directors who have worked in the medical and teaching professions along those with business, science and local government backgrounds. To complete our team, we are looking to recruit an additional director from the legal profession. Previous experience in financial management, along with communications and marketing, would also be an advantage.
The commitment required for the role of a Director – The majority of the day-to-day management and administration of the charity is done by our Chief Executive and his dedicated team of volunteers. The Director role is a strategic one, ensuring that we comply with the charity’s stated objectives. This involves reading papers in preparation for attendance at quarterly Board meetings at our offices, deciding on applications for large ‘signature’ awards, along with considering advice from our portfolio managers and the ongoing review of our strategic direction.
