United Response is a strong and vibrant charitable organisation that continues to grow and develop in a demanding service environment in order to deliver highly person-centred support to vulnerable people. 

In order to continue delivery of our developing business models and drive our new strategy, we are looking for three exceptional individuals to join our current Board of Trustees, to ensure that we extend our impact in providing the highest level of support to some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from people to join our Board of Trustees from the following key areas:

  • Social care (e.g. adult social care) including experience of working in local authorities at a senior level or within private/third sector providers;
  • Housing, including development and housing/asset management,
  • Government, working at a senior level within Government or with experience of influencing government at senior level),
  • Income generation (e.g. an innovative social finance or intermediary background),
  • IT/Systems change (e.g. experience of running major change/transformation programmes with a large private sector provider of relevant programmes or initiatives),
  • Contract negotiation and procurement (e.g. involved in commissioning of public sector contracts and negotiation).

We wish to maintain a geographical balance of trustees, so candidate whose work lies outside of London are particularly encourages to apply. We are also committed to ensuring that our Board reflects the diversity of the populations I which we work, and so we are particularly interested to consider candidates who bring personal experience of disability and/or long term health conditions.

Previous experience of being a Trustee is not essential, although an understanding of the respective roles of non-executives and executives is key.   Our current Board of Trustees combine strategic oversight, challenge and scrutiny with insight and empathy for our cause, we are looking for new trustees to main this same balanced approach. Please follow the link below for further information on the Trustees roles and the formal application process.
