Trustee Vacancies

Due to the retirement of longstanding trustees, the PH Holt Foundation is looking to recruit three new trustees to its board and welcomes applications from individuals who share our values and commitment to making a positive difference in communities across Merseyside. We are particularly keen to strengthen our board’s expertise and skill base with professionals from the private, public and charity worlds with experience in one or more of the following areas:

·       Financial management and accountancy

·       Governance and risk management

·       Legal expertise in relation to the voluntary sector

·       Investment management

·       Marketing and digital communications

·       Experience and knowledge from working in the field of education, the arts or community programmes


The role of trustee is a voluntary position and reasonable expenses are reimbursed for board related work. Board meetings are held four times a year in Liverpool during business hours. Trustees also participate in one or more of the delegated sub-committees which meet as required on Grants, Investments, Finance and Risk Management. Occasional visits to Merseyside charities funded by the Foundation are also part of the role.
