Reach’s free trustee placement service will help small charities strengthen governance.
Reach’s Trusteeworks Matching Service will be free from 1 November 2013 for charities with an annual turnover of less than £1 million. Reach believes that removing the entry level charge of £75 for smaller charities, who have limited funds for recruiting, will make a big difference by helping them to strengthen their boards. Strong boards, with a sufficient breadth of experience and skills, are crucial for charities facing difficult decisions in an uncertain economic climate.
Trusteeworks Matching Service provides a high quality introduction to skilled volunteers. The Trustee role appears on Reach’s register of available trustee opportunities, and Reach’s recruitment teams search their extensive register of available volunteers, sound out candidates and forward suitable names to the charity.
In addition to Trusteeworks Matching Service Reach offers the Trutseeworks Matching Plus Service and the Trusteeworks Premium Service which provide additional features such as preparing advertising copy for the role and in-depth screening and briefing of candidates.
Reach is the biggest recruiter of Trustees in the UK having placed nearly 750 with charities all over the country since the launch of Trusteeworks in October 2009 including 185 in 2012 and 142 so far this year. Overall Reach placed 500 volunteers in 2012 representing an estimated value of £9m million worth of skills transferred into the charity sector, and registered over 1,000 new volunteers and over 1,100 placement opportunities with charities.
