The Methodist Church Tower Hamlets
QVSR, the Seamen’s Mission of the Methodist Church, was first established in 1843 to support seafarers and their families in the Port of London. Today QVSR continues to support retired seafarers and has expanded its work to include ex-servicemen and other men in need of assistance through the provision of accommodation and welfare support in the East End of London. Additionally, QVSR manages seafarers’ centres based along the River Thames and provides support to seafarers coming into the Port of Tilbury and DP World London Gateway. In 2022 QVSR will be expanding its work to support seafarers in the ports of Bristol, Felixstowe and Immingham.
QVSR is governed by a Board of Trustees who meet 4 times a
year to provide strategic direction, oversight of the work of the charity and
to give support to the Chief Executive and the Senior Management Team.
Alongside these meetings are additional sub-committees, an annual away day and
other ad hoc events.
We are currently seeking to appoint a Trustee to join the Board and are particularly interested in hearing from applicants who have a passion and time for working for a charity and who have one or more of the following skills/experience:
· Knowledge or interest in the Maritime sector/Merchant Navy
· Knowledge of Methodism or other church structures
· Knowledge of charity finance, HR/employment law or IT systems
· A strong understanding of governance and the charity sector
This is a voluntary position and expenses incurred will be reimbursed.
If you feel you can make a positive contribution to QVSR and
are able to make the necessary commitment and would like to hear more about our
Trustee vacancy, please contact Alexander Campbell, QVSR’s Chief Executive,
on 020 7987 4622 or via email at email@example.com.
Closing Date: 12th November 2021
The role would suit someone with advice and guidance experience, who is passionate about facilitating the maximum independence of older people and their carers who find it increasingly difficult to navigate the systems around healthcare, benefits, social support, bereavement, etc.
