Join our Board of Trustees

Category: Uncatagorised

We are recruiting at least two new trustees to join our board from early 2022.

Trustees and the Board plays a key role in setting the strategic direction and policies of Mitzvah Day which guides and supports the Chief Executive.

You will be joining the Mitzvah Day Board at an exciting time as we refresh our strategy and determine the direction of the charity for the upcoming years.

We are looking for enthusiastic, knowledgeable and dedicated individuals who are excellent team players to join our board. We are committed to maintaining a diverse and expert Board. We are particularly interested in potential trustees who have the following skills, knowledge or perspectives, though this is not an exclusive list, and we encourage applications from all those with an interest in our work and relevant experience:
• Governance/Public Affairs
• Faith or Interfaith relations
• Legal/HR expertise
• Experience in community building
• Fundraising

Mitzvah Day brings people of all faiths and backgrounds together through Jewish-led social action. Thousands of participants give their time, not their money, making a huge difference to a range of people, causes and charities. Whilst primarily focused on one day, our work continues throughout the year both building interfaith relationships that lead to genuine, longstanding friendships and more deeply connected communities leading to a stronger civil society.

Mitzvah Day relies heavily on volunteers at a local level to act as the project coordinators who make Mitzvah Day happen, and we also have a committed trustee board.
