ECHO Board of Trustees (unpaid)

Ever thought of becoming a Trustee? It can be a very rewarding experience and you would have the satisfaction of knowing you have made a real difference in the governance of our charity. At ECHO strong governance is an integral part of being a well-run organisation for our members.

Sorry, there are no other paid vacancies at the moment, but why not become an ECHO volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to gain new experience, meet new people and make new friends. It also is good for your CV. Many ECHO volunteers have gone on to paid work in this field.

Our volunteer co-ordinator is Denise Kerwood, you can contact her at the main ECHO office on 01568 620307 or send an email to She will have an informal chat about what we can offer and what you would like to get out of your volunteering. It’s important that we take some time to make it a good match.

We welcome enquiries at any time as there are always vacancies throughout the organisation in many different areas. Current vacancies are listed on the volunteer page here.
