EO Trustee Search

Our EO Trustee Search offers three options for our members to find and recruit an Independent Trustee, or to get support in doing so.

Our members rated support in finding an independent trustee as one the top three priorities when it came to ways the EOA could support their employee ownership journey.

Having an Independent Trustee helps to deliver robust governance – offering objective insight and support  to represent the interests of the business’ employee owners and in delivering on the purpose of the business.
