Meet our trustees: Jamie Powell

In celebration of Trustee Week 2022, we thought we'd introduce you to some of our amazing trustees. First up...Jamie Powell!

 Jamie Powell trustee

We asked Jamie to tell us a bit about himself and what led him to sit on the Board of Trustees for Early Years Wales, and this is what he had to say...

  • Why is being a trustee (of Early Years Wales) important to you

I have always wanted to give something back and do what I can to make a difference to society. My role as a Trustee of Early Years Wales is massively important to me, as it gives me the opportunity to use my skills and experience to support the charity, contributing to successful outcomes by playing a role in strategic development.

  • What advice would give anyone considering being a trustee

Just do it. If you’ve got a passion for helping others in society and want to make a difference, I would recommend you find a charity which shares your values and then you just need to offer your support. It’s massively rewarding to be part of the team at Early Years Wales.

  • What is your background & what led you to Early Years Wales

I am a Chartered Accountant with over 20 years’ experience across the private and public sector. Prior to my role as a Trustee with Early Years Wales, I had no experience in the charitable sector.

As a parent of two young children and former primary school governor, I was keen to do what I could to support children across Wales, so when I came across the opportunity to become a Trustee with Early Years Wales, I jumped at it.

I’ve really enjoyed the last two years as a member of the Board of Trustees and having recently taken on the role of Treasurer, I’m really looking forward to helping the charity go from strength to strength.
