Overall responsibility for the running of the Salespeople’s Charity rests with the Board, details of which can be found here.
The Trustees are responsible for:

  • Ensuring the charity carries out its purposes for the public benefit

  • Complying with the SPC’s governing document and charity laws and any other laws applicable to the SPC

  • Acting in the SPC’s best interest, avoiding conflict of interest and making balanced decisions considering both the short and long term

  • Managing the SPC’s resources responsibly and prudently, avoiding financial and reputational risks

  • Acting with reasonable care and skill, seeking professional advice appropriately

  • Ensuring accountability across all activities and compliance with statutory accounting and reporting requirements

  • Safeguarding the assets of the charity, through taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.

Decisions regarding management issues,  policies and changes to rules can only be proposed and voted on at full Board meetings, which are held three times a year.

We actively encourage those with field sales experience to join the Salespeople’s Charity but are also keen to hear from others with differing skill sets and experience. Eg, Marketing, Financial, IT, Social Welfare, etc

Prospective Trustees meet with the Charity Manager who provides an insight into how the Charity conducts its operations before being invited to attend a Board Meeting, of which there are 3 per annum.

If an invitation to join the Board is issued and accepted by the prospective Trustee, he or she will be elected onto the Board for a period of five years, after which time, the Trustee is required to stand down, but can immediately stand for re-election without nomination.

An existing Board member mentors all new Trustees and a full induction is provided with training offered as required.
