Lead Trustee for Safeguarding

Our trustees play a vital role at British Exploring Society. They have independent control over, and legal responsibility for, our management and administration. Since 1932 we have always relied on the time individuals donate to us, and our trustees are a cornerstone of that culture of professional volunteering.

As we work with young people and vulnerable adults we have a safeguarding lead within the office team. Safeguarding is the responsibility of all our trustees, but we also think it is helpful to have at least one trustee who can provide leadership, expert advice and guidance to fellow trustees on safeguarding matters. As one such trustee is stepping down, we seek a new trustee with a strong background and expertise in safeguarding to join our board, and to support us in delivering on our strategic commitment to provide transformative experiences to young people who can benefit most.

Please contact Ian Maginnis, Chair to register your interest by email to ian.maginnis.im@gmail.com. If you have any further questions, please contact us directly on Olivia@britishexploring.org or call us on 020 7591 3141
