RAS is delighted to offer a fantastic opportunity to join a forward-thinking Board of Directors. As a Board member, you would play your part in taking important decisions to allow the charity to continue to develop. RAS is able to offer these vacancies to men as well which will complement our planned expansion of our service to include male survivors of rape and sexual abuse. We are particularly looking for individuals with experience in finance, human resources, management and marketing. We offer our Board members the opportunity to undertake any relevant training. If you have a passion for developing a vital and unique service in the North East, supporting survivors of rape and sexual abuse and challenging the misconceptions which surround these issues, then this is the opportunity for you. All volunteers make a difference and are greatly appreciated. For further details please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
