Work for The Change Project
The Change Project values the diversity of its community and aims to have a workforce that reflects this and therefore encourage applications from all sections of the community.
The Change Project Trustee Vacancy
The core aim of The Change Project is to promote well-being through enabling people to have healthy relationships in families, between individuals, and in the community.
Safeguarding has been at the core of The Change Project since the beginning of our work with domestic violence. In order to help the trustees meet their responsibilities and keep safeguarding on their agenda the Board is seeking to appoint a trustee to take a lead on safeguarding matters.
As a trustee, the individual will also be expected to contribute to the overall good governance of the charity.
The Board of The Change Project meets four times a year in Chelmsford, Essex. Trustees also attend informal events with operational staff such as team meetings, training events and strategic planning days where possible.
About the Candidate
The right candidate will have a strong background in safeguarding and up to date awareness of the UK regulation and best practices associated with the protection of children and vulnerable adults.
A key part of the role will be to monitor our systems and procedures in a safeguarding context and liaise with key safeguarding staff in the organisation to ensure safe decisions are made regarding safeguarding issues.
Candidates should be committed to our work and values. The ideal candidate will likely display the following attributes:

- Experience in working with and delivering change in organisations
- An understanding of UK charity regulation and governance
