Join us as a Trustee and help us to make a difference to people experiencing homelessness in Cambridge.

Jimmy’s provides help to people experiencing homelessness in Cambridge. We work with local people, communities, organisations and partners to deliver 24/7 emergency help, support and accommodation 365 days a year for those who would otherwise be sleeping rough.

This is an exciting time to join Jimmy’s as we approach the significant milestone of 30 years of providing support. Looking ahead to 2025, we want to celebrate all that Jimmy’s has achieved over the last three decades.

We are currently looking to appoint Trustees to the Board to enable us to fulfil our aims and objectives and achieve our vision whilst developing and enhancing the public image of Jimmy’s as a provider of services within the community.

We are a lively and committed Board with a range of skills and experience and we would love to hear from applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds and, in particular, those with expertise in HR, finance and property management.

The role of the Trustee is a voluntary position, but you will benefit from:

  • Induction & training
  • Opportunities to make strategic decisions to ensure the longer-term viability of the charity
  • Contributing expertise and insight with the scope to shape the future of Jimmy’s
  • Becoming an ambassador for Jimmy’s at public events
  • Opportunity to volunteer at one of Jimmy’s accommodation sites

Whether you are an experienced Trustee or wanting to take your first step at Board level, please get in touch if you believe you can make a difference.

Your time commitment will be attendance at up to six evening Board meetings a year and some ad hoc meeting with other organisations and participation in Committees of which you are a member and training. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

Deadline for applications: 5pm on Monday 3 June 2024.

Virtual interviews to take place: week commencing 3 June 2024.

In-person interviews to take place: week commencing 10 June 2024.
