ACT are looking for new trustees motivated by affecting change through charity and business working together.

Bristol (or able to travel to Bristol)

Andrews Charitable Trust is a grant-making charity. As the majority shareholder of Andrews Property Group, ACT uses the profits made by the company to support ventures which offer innovative approaches to social problems.

Our trustees play an active role in guiding the programmes of grants and investments, which aim to address the links between housing and poverty – both in the UK and internationally. We are working toward this through supporting action, building knowledge, and developing ways of using our investments as a tool for change.

We are looking for two to three additional trustees and particularly welcome applicants with experience in one or more of the following areas: investment management (particularly property investment); shelter responses to humanitarian aid or international development; services for young people who have been in care; or growing enterprises to achieve scale. Applicants with other relevant areas of expertise would also be welcome.

Total time commitment is no more than 10 days per year. This includes three afternoon board meetings and one full day a year (near Bristol on a Thursday), plus occasional visits to prospective investees and/or participation on one of our sub committees. There will also be some home reading and research.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed.

Deadline: 28 Jan 2020
