Ceartas is both a company limited by guarantee and a charity. As such, members of our Board are referred to as either as Directors (company) or Trustees (charity).
Ceartas has a strong board of volunteer Directors / Trustees, with a wide range of skills and experience that bring strong governance and direction to the organisation. Being a volunteer on our Board is an unpaid role that requires a degree of commitment, and as such we do not expect Board members to stay in post indefinitely.
When Board vacancies arise, they will be advertised on the Goodmoves website.
