Trustees Unlimited was founded in 2009 on the belief that good governance strengthens society.
We are a social purpose business.
Trustees Unlimited was created in 2009 as a joint venture bringing together the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), Bates Wells and Russam. Its creation disrupted and shaped the trustee recruitment market and since 2014, it has disrupted the corporate trustee placement market with the creation of Step on board.
Following a lengthy period of collaboration, in January 2020, Trustees Unlimited became a wholly owned part of the Russam group. The organisation continues to work closely with NCVO and Bates Wells across several areas including delivering services.
Together, our mission is to promote and develop excellent governance across civil society.
Trustees Unlimited is a founding UK BCorp.
Our vision is a strong and diverse civil society in which organisations are governed well to achieve their social aims.
We are a social purpose business with a MISSION to promote and develop excellent governance across civil society.
- We find people with great and relevant experience
- We develop the skills of potential and existing trustees and connect them with boards
- We match those people with civil society organisations in need of their skills
- We help individuals and boards thrive through coaching, development and support
We’re a knowledgeable, well connected and experienced team, with expertise drawn from our three joint venture owners as well as our cross sector networks.
We believe that diverse boards underpin excellent governance. We will strive to remove the barriers that prevent people from applying to become trustees and help our clients to recruit and support people with a wide range of skills and lived experience.
We are determined in our mission to promote excellent governance by identifying talented people and supporting them to help civil society organisations succeed.
We will represent our clients in a way that reflects their values and reputation and we will always be transparent about our process and fees.
We will contribute to new ways of thinking and working, create new partnerships and design new services to fulfil our mission and serve our clients.
