The organisations and websites listed below may be of help if you are specifically looking to recruit trustees.  You can also register your opportunity on the new county-wide volunteering website – Oxford Volunteers.

Oxfordshire’s Lieutenancy has a scheme to connect with people who have senior leadership experience with voluntary organisations in the County who seek trustees. The Lieutenancy List has has had considerable success in helping people and organisations make these links, most often in organisations with a county-wide reach.

To explore this opportunity, organisations should contact the Lieutenancy Office. If appropriate they are then asked to fill in a simple form, describing the service and the roles that they are seeking to fill. A notice is then distributed to all on the List. Contact office@stevenson-oxford.co.uk.
