Oxfordshire Trustee Leadership List: 

The Oxfordshire Trustee Leadership List is a confidential list of people with senior leadership experience.  Charities and groups/organisations who are looking for Trustees or Board Members describe their service and specify the experience and skills they seek.  This brief information is then distributed to all on the list, in confidential format.  Those who are interested contact the organisation direct for further information and to take matters further if they wish.  There is no commitment to engage unless interested in doing so and contact details of those on the list are never given to organisations without permission.

You can send in the details of the Trustee/Board Member position you require by completing this form: Template for organisations OTLL and send the completed form to communications@ocva.org.uk
