We are currently seeking new trustees to help us implement our new strategy that builds on our strong legacy and aims to extend our reach, create new ways for individuals and organisations to engage with us and ensures that we are relevant to the concerns of the public about crime in the coming years. The board oversees the work of a six-person Central Support Team, led by our CEO.

We are keen to build a board that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve and are happy to provide support and training for people who wish to develop their skills as a trustee or who are new to the role. We have identified specific gaps in our board for trustees who bring knowledge of research and policy about crime prevention and public safety, experience of community engagement with the police, and also the ability to help us make effective and appropriate use of new technologies in our work.

You should have a collegial and collaborative working style and will be able to demonstrate the ability to provide strategic direction and oversight, probably gained through previous experience of working at board level in an organisation of similar scale and complexity.

For further information, please download the recruitment pack (clicking here or document below). To apply, please send a CV and a supporting statement (maximum two pages) that explains how you meet the person specification provided. If you would like to arrange an informal chat with our Chair, please email enquiries@ourwatch.org.uk.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 18th May. Interviews are expected to be in early June. 


If this role isn't for you, why not consider getting involved as a volunteer with your local scheme.
