    Calibre Audio Library

Ref: GSe61294

Calibre Audio is a national charity providing a subscription-free service of unabridged audiobooks for adults and children with sight problems, dyslexia or other disabilities that prevents them from accessing print. Having recently concluded a major strategic review and appointed a new Chief Executive last year, we are now looking for a new Trustee to join the Board and help support the organisation as we embrace the rapid change we face, as well as help us to respond to exciting new opportunities.

In particular, we are about to embark on a fundraising drive as part of our strategy for 2020-2023 and we require someone who has experience of leading an ambitious organisational strategy to raise income, as well as the skills and expertise to contribute broadly to our Board and lead the strategic direction of the organisation.  We are seeking an experienced fundraising professional who can help us think long term and strategically, and who has strong communication skills and the ability to influence key stakeholders.

We need people of integrity with a strong commitment to our aims and a collaborative approach. You will be joining a highly motivated, high performing board with a genuine desire to make a difference. There is a job to be done here and the opportunity to join a charity which is embarking the next crucial stage of its development is an exciting one.

For an informal confidential discussion about the roles please contact our advising consultants Mark Bate on 0113 205 6288 or Peter Guilder on 07545 441127.
