Who we are

Listening Post is a Gloucestershire based charity ensuring that professional counselling support is accessible to all when needed. We provide counselling for anyone with emotional or psychological distress over the age of 18 regardless of background and financial status. We also provide training courses for prospective counsellors and those who wish to develop their listening skills.

The role

What are we looking for in a Trustee?

Someone who is concerned about the many who experience poor emotional, mental and psychological health and wants to work to improve well-being.

Someone who is effective in working as part of a team, and who is able to speak up and challenge when necessary.

Someone who is able to act as an ambassador to a wide range of audiences.

Someone who can question, discuss and debate issues to ensure the governance of the charity is robust and the Board makes good decisions about how to fulfil its mission and responsibilities.

Someone who lives locally in Gloucestershire and who has a connection to some of its diverse communities

Valuable Expertise

Our governing body needs people with a range of skills and perspectives, and who bring experience in running organisations, HR and people management, legal knowledge and operations.

To complement our current Board of Trustees we are looking for people who have expertise in the following areas:

· Business development and management

· Campaigning and influencing

· Equality, diversity and inclusion

· Legal expertise

· Human resources

· Stakeholder and membership engagement

· Collaborative working

Board Diversity

We are particularly keen to receive applications from people from a range of social and ethnic backgrounds as we broaden our representation to reflect all local communities.

We meet as trustees most months, usually online, on a Monday evening, with occasional in person evenings held in Gloucester. Some trustees also contribute to working groups on specific issues.
