Trustee with Digital Marketing Experience

PRIME Cymru is a registered charity established in 2001 by HRH The Prince of Wales.  Operating throughout Wales, we provide support to mature individuals, with a focus on those over the age of 50, who are economically inactive, unemployed or facing redundancy and assist them into self-employment, employment, training and even volunteering as a stepping stone to more formal economic activity.   

Each year we engage with over 10,000 individuals who are often facing older age poverty and this is done through our team of paid staff and volunteer mentors who give their time free of charge 

We are now looking to further strengthen our excellent Board of Trustees by appointing an additional new trustee who shares our passion and commitment. Our vacancy is for someone with the skills, knowledge and experience of digital marketing/transformation, to bring digital marketing expertise to our board decisions and help strengthen our charity’s digital strategy.  

We aim to maintain a balanced set of experience and expertise on the Board of Trustees in order to deliver strong and effective governance, strategic development and decision making.  

The role is unpaid but immensely rewarding in terms of the positive impacts of PRIME Cymru’s work on people’s lives.
