Quality trustees from a trusted source
Trustees Unlimited

Trustees Unlimited is a joint venture between Bates Wells Braithwaite, the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and Russam GMS and it is a solution to the problem many organisations face - trying to recruit high quality trustees and non executives in a rigorous and yet cost effective way.

Established in 2009, Trustees Unlimited has quickly established itself as one of the premier providers of trustee and non executive recruitment. Whether it is a trustee for a charity, a director for a social enterprise or a volunteer to sit on an audit committee, Trustees Unlimited has unprecedented access to a large group of high calibre people who are actively looking for such roles and offers a unique model of delivery. With a database and network that is both large and diverse Trustees Unlimited is making a real difference in terms of helping boards become balanced and effective.

Trustees Unlimited and its sister service, Non-Executives Unlimited, are committed to improving governance in the Civil Society Sector and through recruitment, training and mentoring have developed a unique offering that is helping many organisations strengthen their boards.

Trustee Matters, May 2015

This month we’re looking at the subject everyone is talking about: the General Election and what this means for the UK charity sector at large.

With the election results today showing that the Conservative party has won a slim majority, the volunteering agenda looks like it could be the biggest positive opportunity. The manifesto commitment to allow three days paid leave a year from big companies and public bodies is fantastic - but the devil is in the detail of implementation and whether this needs further legislation remains to be seen. See the NCVO's Chief Executive Sir Stuart Etherington had to say on the matter here:Sir Stuart Etherington's address to the Sector and further opinions from sector leaders can be found here:Implications for the sector - NCVO blog.



Forthcoming Trustees Unlimited Events here

Post-election discussion

Now that the result of the election is known, what does that mean for the sector over the next 4 years? This event will be one of the first gatherings of sector leaders post-election and will be an opportunity to explore some of the fundamental issues that will affect the voluntary sector. Chaired by Karl Wilding , NCVO’s Director of Public Policy whether you are a Chair or Chief Executive, you need to know what the road ahead looks like.

Entrance to both events is free and by invitation only – please get in touch with Emma Patmore if you are a board member or SMT member of a charity or other non-profit organisation if you’re not already on our events mailing list - This email address is being protected from spambots.

 I have a lot of words-- Sloppy, sloppy writing. He had a working car, why wouldn't he take those people to a hospital instead of waiting and hoping someone comes? Why did his cell phone ring if there was no reception there? Why would he stop horizontally in the middle of the road to find it? Why, when there were no other cars on that road that whole time, would a semi come barreling around the corner out of nowhere? Why wouldn't a patient that critical be taken to a level 1 trauma center? Why wouldn't Meredith call Amelia before she pulls the plug? And for the love of God, why couldn't Shonda give us ONE happy ending?? Send him off to DC for a year if you have to but at least leave it to where the show can wrap up with Meredith being happy for f's sake.
