But any applications will need to be in quickly – the deadline is May 18.
Two vacancies are coming up for election this summer: a ‘trade’ director is needed to support TrustMark’s programme of innovation and the development of new products and services for tradespeople, while a ‘non-trade’ director is also being sought with insight and experience in consumer empowerment and consumer protection policy.
TrustMark always seeks an equal balance between trade and non-trade interests on the board. Directors, who are elected for a three-year term, receive a small annual remuneration and currently meet about six times a year. They also attend about four forum meetings each year and may be part of working groups or other areas of the business as required.
Liz Male, chairperson of TrustMark, said: "After a transformation of several years which has radically improved TrustMark, its governance, operations and relationships, we are ready to make the next big step in our plans, and we’re looking for visionary and determined leaders to join the board to shape this exciting future.
"TrustMark was relaunched by the Consumer Minister last year with an updated set of standards – the Government Endorsed Standards which cover good trading practices, customer service and technical competence.
"This year we see the introduction of important new consumer protection legislation, and the opportunity to support a new Government in its work to empower homeowners and grow the success of responsible businesses. There’s never been a better time to be at the helm of a scheme like this."
