Help us create The Mill of the future!

We’re looking for new Trustees.

The Mill is a welcoming, positive, accessible and inclusive space in the heart of Walthamstow – we work with the local community to make things happen – and a registered charity.

By becoming a Trustee of The Mill, you can help us to build a strong local community where people love to live, and know and care for their neighbours.

We’re looking to recruit two trustees and are particularly at present looking for people with:

  • Building redevelopment and project management experience
  • Expert understanding of vulnerable and isolated residents (who might have complex needs)
  • HR and/or volunteer strategy/management skills
  • Strategic planning skills
  • A great knowledge of our local community and area

If you’d like to share your time and skills with a friendly team who meet monthly, and make a significant difference to your community, then we’d love to talk to you.

For more information, please read our Trustee Role Description or contact Sharon Page, Chair of Trustees sharon@TheMillE17.org.

With regard to building redevelopment, as well as seeking knowledge, skills and enthusiasm around this area for our Trustee Board, we are also seeking a management group lead – perhaps you could be the person who could take both of these on (it is not uncommon for a trustee to lead a management group)? More information here.

Why become a Trustee at The Mill?

  • Get to know people in the community and develop new friendships
  • A feeling of belonging in your local area
  • An interesting and stimulating role
  • New skills and experience that you can use in your day job or put on your CV
  • An opportunity to contribute to your local community and a project that makes a big difference to those who are feeling vulnerable or isolated
  • Having an impact – a real sense of achieving something

What we are looking for:

  • People who want to get involved and help create a strong local community
  • People who can volunteer at least 10 hours a month
  • Enthusiastic and dedicated people
  • We want a Trustee board that reflects the diverse community in which The Mill operates
