Get Involved in our Committees or Charities

Skinners committee members drive the work of the Company under the umbrella of the Court. Committee members play an active and vital role in the Company’s work and every year the Clerk gathers interest from Skinners interested in using their expertise to provide direction to the organisation, generally for a four-year term, renewable once. 

The Clerk is recruiting to fill several committee vacancies in the Committees highlighted in red below that have role descriptions included; some are open to all members of the Company and some are for particular categories of membership. Committees meet two, three or sometimes four or more times a year, generally at the Hall and generally in office hours. 

If you click on the Committee you are interested in below you will see who the other members of the Committee are, how many times a year it meets and the terms of reference. Role descriptions are also available and this year we are particularly interested in people with skills and experience in estate management, finance and accounting from any professional background.

If you think you might be interested in joining one of our Committees then please contact the Clerk on clerk@skinners.org.uk by the 31st March 2021 with a copy of your CV, an indication of the Committee/s you are interested in and how you think your skills might help. If you are enthusiastic, collaborative and interested in working with like-minded people whose diverse backgrounds and expertise drives the work of your Company you should consider getting in touch.

New Committee appointments are approved at our Corpus Christi Court meeting which takes place in May/June and terms of office begin the following September 2021.
