Trustee vacancy

We are looking for new Trustees!

Are you a member of Tameside’s ethnic minority community?
Would you like to make a difference to people living in Tameside?

Do you have local community experience, knowledge and involvement?
If you have answered ‘yes’ then we want to hear from you!

Diversity Matters North West (DMNW) is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. It provides a range of services including social and physical activities, training programmes, volunteering and support to women in crisis.

The Board wishes to further diversify and complement their existing expertise and skills base and has opened two positions for members of the local ethnic minority communities to join the Board as trustees.  Candidates must have the drive, initiative and demonstrate commitment to local development.

We seek a minimum commitment of 2 hours every three months (currently quarterly, 5-7pm) on a Monday (this is subject to review), but if you can spare more time than this there are opportunities to work on our sub-committees. During the pandemic we are conducting our meetings virtually via Zoom.

This is not a salaried position, but you will be able to claim reimbursement of any out-of-pocket expenses.

To be in with a chance to join our board, please download and follow the procedure in our Trustee Application Pack (alternatively you can request a pack to be collected from the centre):

If you have any queries, please contact Rehana Begum (Chief Officer & Company Secretary) or Gemma Gaskell (Chief Officer). Both are available on 0161 368 3268 or email /
