Become a Trustee

Two men talkingSkills for Care is looking for experienced trustees to help us develop the adult social care workforce in a growing sector.

Led by Dame Moira Gibb DBE our board of trustees work with the sector’s 20,300 employers to help shape the strategic development of learning and development opportunities for the 1.5 million strong adult social care workforce in England.

We are looking for new trustees who will have a proven ability to provide robust oversight, help ensure effective governance arrangements are in place and rigorously monitor the company’s performance. We welcome interest from candidates of all backgrounds, ages and geographic locations. 

These are challenging times for adult social care so we are looking for individuals with  the ability to work collaboratively with others and who share our aspiration to create a skilled and knowledgeable workforce capable of delivering high quality care and support to people in our communities. Whilst current experience of the adult social care sector is not essential, it is desirable and you will need to demonstrate that you have the relevant knowledge and experience to help us build a workforce that is skilled, confident, well-led and value based.

You will need to be available to attend four board meetings a year, plus an annual strategy day with a similar number of committee meetings. The position is unremunerated but expenses are paid for meetings that will be held in London or at our Leeds head office.
