Current vacancies with Autism at Kingwood

To Apply for any of the roles listed below please use the application form here.

Autism at Kingwood is a registered Charity, limited by guarantee, providing support to adults on the autistic spectrum to lead happy and fulfilled lives in the community. With a Head Office based in Lower Earley just off the M4 and a turnover of £5 million we work across the Thames Valley, in the counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. The charity employs almost 300 staff providing support to approximately 140 adults with autism and provides advice and guidance to more than 250 people with Asperger Syndrome each year.

The impending rotation of Trustees has created two opportunities for interested parties to join the Autism at Kingwood Board. Whilst we welcome applications from people with a good business acumen and a variety of backgrounds, we would particularly encourage individuals with an interest in autism, possibly also familiar with learning disabilities and/or social care. As a charity with an excellent and growing reputation, we are keen to explore best practice and raise awareness of autism to the wider community, in addition to providing services, so if you have an existing profile in the autism sector that would be valued and utilised.

An individual with experience/interest in business development, fundraising or communications may also have particular skills and expertise that would be of great benefit to the charity.
The Board meets in Reading four times a year and the charity’s governance also benefits from sub-committee meetings. The Treasurer chairs four meetings of the Finance sub-committee and the Legal Trustee chairs four meetings of the sub-committee dealing with the risks and practice that relate to the work of the charity. We are seeking a Trustee to sit on each of the Committees mentioned.
We are keen to achieve a more diverse Board of Trustees and we welcome applications from all sections and ethnic backgrounds of the community. Unfortunately in order to preserve the confidentiality of people we support we do not accept applicants whose relative is receiving support from Kingwood.

To express an interest and to apply for this role, please send a CV plus written statement of no more than 500 words to support your application to info@kingwood.org.uk. Applications will close on Monday 11th June 2018.

Please consider the role of the trustee and share the attributes, skills and experiences you would bring to the role. If you wish to find out more please contact Sandy Meadows, Vice Chairman, at sandy@saxonbury.com.
