Exciting opportunity to support charity helping job seekers in Lancashire

A charity which helps people across the North-West develop the skills they need to secure employment is searching for two new trustees.

Employability skills organisation Inspira helps more than 30,000 people from Lancashire and Cumbria each year.

Now Inspira is on the look-out for two new trustees from the Lancashire area to play their part in helping the charity’s work across the region.

Inspira is committed to promoting diversity in all aspects of its activity and is keen for potential trustees from all backgrounds to apply for the roles.


George Beveridge, chair of Inspira’s trustees, said: “Like any organisation, Inspira thrives from a diversity of thinking and a wide range of experiences and it’s vital for us to reflect this in our two new trustee positions.

“We are keen for those in Lancashire who have a passion for helping young people and adults from all sectors of society to develop their skills and improve their employability prospects, to apply to be trustees.

“Half of our work is across communities in Lancashire and we would be delighted to see that reflected in two new trustees from the county.

“In terms of skills and experience we are very open to the skills a candidate might have. There is the option for someone with legal experience. But more important to us is a passion and knowledge for the sector we work in, working with young people and adults to help them either find employment or retrain to gain better employment.

“Someone with the energy, enthusiasm and drive to help the organisation deliver improved outcomes for young people and adults in our communities is going to be more beneficial than sector specific skills.”

There is no age restriction on the role but younger people are very welcome to apply.

Mark Bowman, Inspira’s chief executive, said: “Inspira trustees are appointed for an initial three-year period, which is renewable. The position, which is voluntary, gives trustees an opportunity to develop their skills, and further their professional development.

“If someone from Lancashire wants to make a positive difference in society, identifies with what we do, and has a passion for it, then we would be delighted to hear from them.”
