Trustee Recruitment

Location: Malvern

Salary: Voluntary

Community First wishes to recruit new members to join our governing body, the board of trustees.

Can you help direct Community First towards achieving its mission in a time of great change and challenge for the third sector locally?

Interested individuals will need to be able to make a commitment to Community First and devote the necessary time; have strategic vision; independent judgement, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to speak their mind. Ideally the new trustees will also have skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:
• Networking and relationship building at a strategic level
• Governance arrangements in the voluntary or community sector
• Developing and delivering services
• Community participation and development, training or organisational development
• Human resources or marketing and promotion

We are also keen to appoint an experienced Treasurer as a trustee or on an advisory basis to the Board. 

We are particularly keen to achieve a board that is reflective of the diversity of all sections of the community.

We will pay trustees’ expenses and provide an induction into Community First’s work and any ongoing knowledge and skills development needed. Trustees are expected to contribute roughly a day and a half of their time each quarter amounting to approximately 6 days per annum in total.

Application forms and copies of the role description can be obtained from our website – or by contacting Fran Wheatley on 01684 312730.

For an informal discussion about the role of trustee, contact the General Manager, Mark Herriott on 01684 312752.
