Helplink wishes to add a Director/Trustee to its Board who has significant experience in upper level fundraising for other non-profit/charitable organisations. If you want to support the work our organisation provides for Irish citizens at home and abroad with their mental health and with conflict resolution and you have experience in fundraising at a high level then Helplink's Board is the one for you!
Even if you are not based in the West of Ireland where our HQ is (Galway) you can still engage with the Board through the secure online video platform we utilise in our global and national services.
Meetings are six times a year usually on a Tuesday evening from 5:30 until 7/7:30pm - there is also an AGM once a year and you may be asked to go on to a subcommittee every now and then.
