External Trustee

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Trustee of Girlguiding North West England.

We currently have exciting opportunities for people to get involved in an engaging, decision-making trustee role for Girlguiding North West England, a charity that is committed to helping all girls know that they can do anything.


Girlguiding has a rich history of over 110 years, the North West Region is a charity in its own right and was set up in 1971.  Girlguiding provides girls with opportunities to explore, have fun and know that they belong. Through fun, friendship, challenge and adventure we empower girls to find their voice, inspiring them to discover the best in themselves and to make a positive difference in their community. We currently have over 44,000 members of which around 9,000 are adult volunteers.

The charity is governed by a board of trustees who will meet on a regular basis to provide strategic direction, oversight of the work of the charity and to give support to the Executive Manager.

We are looking for people who are not members of Girlguiding but who align with our values and have a variety of experience in areas such as governance and leadership, people management, financial management, operations of a business or charity, digital expertise, marketing, fundraising and equality, diversity, and inclusion. Please do not feel that you need all those skills to be considered for the role.

Our commitment to EDI is woven into the fabric of our governance. We recognise that a diverse trustee body brings a wealth of perspectives, experiences and insights that are vital for effective decision-making and for fostering innovation. Our EDI objectives focus on creating an environment where every trustee feels valued and empowered, regardless of their background, identity, or lived experiences. We actively seek to attract trustees from a range of diverse backgrounds, ensuring that our leadership reflects the communities we live in. Through our commitment to EDI, we are cultivating a trustee body that champions inclusivity and helps shape a more equitable future for all.

Deadline; Monday 17 June 2024 9am
