As AutoRaise prepare to fast-forward their operations and activities through continued growth and development, they are looking to increase membership of their Board of Trustees and uncover industry professionals to offer some support to further the charity’s aims as recognised Volunteers.
With so much future activity planned, the current Board of Trustees are looking to appoint other like-minded people who would welcome the opportunity to give their support, experience and a little time to help ensure the charity continues a true path and upholds its constitution.
The Board will consider all applications from any Vehicle Repair industry stakeholders and are particularly keen to seek experienced professionals from the worlds of Recruitment, Career Advice and senior management/principals from the Further Education sector. We would also welcome applicants with experience of Fundraising on behalf of charitable organisations.
AutoRaise will engage with all applicants and assess the candidate’s suitability, experience and skill set against the Trustee roles that are available. Successful applicants will be formally elected as officers of the charity and be allocated key responsibilities within a specific Trustee role with a level of expectancy around activity and input.
In addition to these Trustee roles, AutoRaise are looking for individuals who really care about the industry and are prepared to volunteer occasional support for specific projects, campaigns, initiatives and events.
AutoRaise became incorporated by the Charities Commission in November 2016 and has steadily built engagement with stakeholders across the whole of the industry. With an enviable group of industry stakeholder Partners along with ever-increasing numbers of Affiliated Repairers who benefit from the charity’s guidance around seeking and recruiting young people in to apprenticeships, AutoRaise has gone from strength to strength and are now firmly positioned as the only entity in the sector who focus entirely and exclusively on addressing the industry’s skills crisis.
We encourage applications from those who are underrepresented in the industry including non-graduates, disabled, D/deaf and neuro-diverse people, LGBTQ+ people, people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds.
Given AutoRaise’ need to act with total impartiality within its operational activities, some applications may be unsuccessful due to potential conflicts of interest, but these will be addressed on an individual basis.
Interested parties are invited to email a brief resume to the charity’s CEO, Bob Linwood at firstname.lastname@example.org. All applications will be treated with the strictest of confidence.
Closing date for applications is end of business on Friday 13th September 2019
