FareShare Sussex & Surrey

FareShare Sussex & Surrey exists to fight hunger, tackle food waste and develop volunteers.

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in an engaging governance role in a charity that is making a difference to our community and environment whilst directly impacting people’s lives!

If you would like to use your time, skills and experience at Board level to help us achieve our goals, we very much look forward to hearing from you. FareShare Sussex & Surrey is a highly successful enterprise at an exciting point of development and expansion - we’ve just celebrated our 20th anniversary and are about to open a new depot in Guildford Surrey.

We are looking for committed individuals with a strong team ethos, to expand the range of director/trustee skills as well as to build on existing skills. We require dynamic and motivated people who are sympathetic to the aims and objectives of FareShare Sussex & Surrey to fulfil these voluntary duties. We expect directors/trustees to contribute to the Board by giving strategic direction; setting overall policy; defining goals and setting targets; evaluating performance; ensuring the charity’s effective administration and financial stability.

We want to have a wide range of people on the Board and seek to be representative of the diverse population of the community. There is no need to have trustee experience to apply, the key requirement is enthusiasm to help us achieve FareShare’s goals.
Applications from individuals with knowledge or experience in any of the following areas will be particularly welcome:
Lived experience of food poverty
Commitment and experiences to reducing environmental impact of organisations
Supply chain operation & food distribution
HR / people and culture management
Finance (specifically for the treasurer position).
