Trustee

Ageing Better
London
Voluntary basis
The Centre for Ageing Better is passionate about achieving its positive vision of a society in which everyone enjoys later life. We seek to bring about long-lasting changes in policy and practice informed by evidence so that more people approaching later life are in good health, fulfilling work, and live in safe and accessible homes and connected communities. Established in 2015, with an endowment from the National Lottery Community Fund, our organisation is now widely recognised as a leading authority on ageing issues.
THE ROLE

Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Anna Dixon, and our new Chair, Dame Carol Black, we are focused on having a significant impact across England by being bolder in calling for change, being highly effective at influencing a wide range of stakeholders, including the private sector, developing and maintaining impactful partnerships to deliver the changes, and continuing to develop a strong analysis and evidence base to support the changes we want to see. 

With a committed Board in place, we are now seeking to build further on our skills by appointing a Trustee with a background in strategic finance. You will provide support and strategic advice on our endowment and will already have a profile in your field. A professional accountancy qualification would be an asset, although it is not strictly essential. We are looking for someone who is clear and confident in the role of governing a charity, safeguarding its assets and applying them as efficiently and effectively as possible to further our objectives.
