ACO is recruiting Trustees

We are looking to increase our current team of Trustees to support the continuous development of ACO. We are currently developing a new strategic plan to transform the services we offer our members.

ACO asks a lot of its trustees, you will be expected to get involved in the strategic direction of the charity and offer an opportunity to bring your skills and experience to the table. ACO has a small staff team and improving finances. This year we will achieve six months reserves and have paid off the pension deficit.

To be a trustee you need to belong to a charity member of the ACO and have the support of your organisation.

We are particularly interested in applicants who have experience in one or more of the following:

  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology
  • Legal
  • Marketing/PR/Media

The positions are unremunerated; reasonable travel expenses can be reimbursed. The commitment for trustees will be to attend 4 Board meetings a year in London and an annual awayday.
