Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity – Trustee (Portsmouth)


The RNRMC believes in a world in which sailors, marines and their families are valued and supported, for life. The charity is run by a Board of up to 15 Trustees drawn from serving personnel, former serving personnel and Trustees who have no direct Service experience. We are looking to recruit a new Trustee to work with colleagues on planning the Charity’s strategy and play a leading role in our funding decisions as we enter our next 5 year strategic plan period.

We have 750,000 beneficiaries. Approximately 30,000 wear a uniform today or are the families of those serving, but the majority are veterans and their families. We are seeking a Trustee with senior experience to augment the Board’s skill set in the Welfare arena, which may include the Health or Social care sectors. Experience will include evidence of understanding strategic prioritisation of need and policy creation in order to help the charity direct its resources appropriately through its grant making panels.

The right candidate will appreciate the principles of good governance, their practical application within the third sector and an understanding of the language and practical applications of Impact measurement.  In addition, the desire to bring sound strategic insight to the broader work of the Charity and an empathy with the needs of our beneficiaries is essential.

This Trustee, as well as being a member of the main Board, will also be expected to Chair the Strategic Funding Committee and, preferably but subject to time commitment, also sit as a member of the Through Life Pathway grants committee. This committee allocates funding to charities that support our beneficiaries Through Life – see
