Fundraising regulator wants board member for Wales

The Fundraising Regulator is recruiting a board member to represent Wales.

“The Fundraising Regulator is a voluntary regulatory organisation with approximately 20 permanent staff and a budget of £2 – 2.5 million per year, acquired through a levy on those charitable organisations which have a high expenditure on fundraising activities. It is responsible for self-regulating all types of charitable fundraising and has a universal remit to investigate and adjudicate against all charitable organisations which fundraise, regardless of whether an organisation is registered with it.

“The Board overseas the operations of the new body, working closely with the interim chair and the chief executive. The Board takes responsibility for ensuring the new regulator has a robust business plan and all structures required to enable the effective regulation of fundraising.”

See the job description (pdf, 65KB) via the regulator’s web page about the board, along with how to apply. Closing date 11th November.

Thanks to WCVA for bringing this to our attention.
