Make sure you really understand what the trust wants and is trying to achieve, and whether you 'fit the bill'. It's better having a very honest conversation at the start.

Cons

Difficult to work with

Keep in contact with the Director as this informal advice is valuable. Because the amounts are so small don't worry too much about the detail - provide the strategic information the Director advises and don't give detail that is unnecessary as it may only raise issues with the board that are not always relevant to the situation on the ground.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Gives more than money, Risk taker, Insightful, Friendly, Builds relationships, Openminded, Responsive
