Hackney Playbus Trustees provide advice and support to help formulate our strategic plans, to support the staff team in executing the plans and to help with specific aspects of the charity according to their skills and interests. Currently we are seeking to recruit trustees to support in areas of financial management, monitoring and evaluation, IT and media and communications. However, above all, we are looking for trustees from black and minority ethnic backgrounds who reflect the cultures, ethnicities and languages of the families we work with in Hackney and surrounding boroughs. We also welcome trustees with lived experience of bringing up children in challenging circumstances. This is important as we work towards a better understanding of how best to support children and families in Hackney and surrounding boroughs. You do not have to have prior experience of being a Trustee as we will provide help, information and have a friendly induction process.

We are seeking applicants who have:

 A genuine interest in the provision of a welcoming and inclusive community based service for families with children under five.
 A genuine interest in co-production, involving families in the design of our services so that they are accessible and appropriate for their needs.
 A creative and flexible approach to service provision
 A commitment to working as part of a team in the joint provision of oversight and direction to a small and hard working team of staff and volunteers.
 A willingness to be an active team member, taking part in the quarterly trustee meetings and playing a role in working groups as and when appropriate to support staff and specific work streams.
