About Trustee Bank
Our Trustee Bank offers a free service to all voluntary sector organisations advertise and/or view trustee vacancies.
We also provide information about becoming a trustee and on recruitment and induction practices.
There are around 180,000 registered charities in England and Wales ranging from small community groups, to household name charities that you hear of everyday. And behind every charity is a board of trustees.
Trustee Bank closed for new vacancies
Trustee Bank is currently closed to new vacancies as of 17/04/13 while this part of the website is re-designed.
Trustee Bank will reopen as an exclusive service for NCVO Members to advertise their trustee vacancies. Everyone, members and non-members will be able to view all adverts.

Supporting trustee recruitment
We have a range of resources explaining recruitment process and induction practices:
Advertisers: Trustee Bank is an advertisement and information service. It does not provide a placement service, and organisations are responsible for contacting candidates, interviewing, selection and all other recruitment activities. NCVO does not vet or endorse any potential trustees who contact you through Trusteebank, and does not make any warranties as to the sustainability of the applicant. NCVO cannot be held liable for any consequences resulting from appointments made through this service.
Potential trustees: Trustee Bank provides information about trustee vacancies for third party organisations. An advertisement on Trusteebank does not constitute an endorsement by NCVO of the opinions, policies, products, services, activities, or legal and financial health of any organisation listed. It is recommended that potential trustees fully inform themselves of all aspects of an organisation before accepting a trusteeship.
