Description

Lucky Ewe is seeking to bring extra energy and perspective to its Trustee group as they grow this new educational charity in NE Fife. More here www.luckyewe.org.uk. They wish to recruit trustees who work well with others & have the experience & foresight to help steer them forward. They are interested in individuals with a financial, business development or farming background, but all volunteers will be kindly considered. Trustees who want to volunteer in practical tasks on the farm are also welcome. You should work well with the appointed staff. Trustees meet at least once a month, via Zoom if preferred. Each trustee needs to prepare for the monthly meeting, participate creatively in the meeting, give their best considered advice, and complete their accepted actions from the meeting in a timely way. Altogether a trustee should expect to give 5 hours per month to the charity, though they may choose to give more time. Meetings are set for Mondays.
