We have recently completed a trustee skills audit to identify key areas to grow skills on our Board and digital has been identified as one of these areas. Our organisation is run remotely with home based staff and many virtual trustee meetings, alongside two in person trustee meetings a year.
We are expanding our use of digital in our operational work and service delivery alongside growing this in our ways of working and our communications and fundraising.
We're looking for a trustee with a passion for our cause, a team approach and digital expertise to make positive contributions to our work here at the Child Growth Foundation, to positively impact the lives of the children, adults and families with growth conditions that we support, along with those not yet diagnosed.
