About Board Member (Volunteer, no previous board level experience neccessary)

As a community interest company, we are seeking individuals with relevant skills and experiences to help ensure effective business operation, and to allow us to continue supporting the local community.

Day to day operations are overseen by a professional network manager, three additional term-time only staff, and volunteers. Board members will provide support, advice, and challenge in their relevant field.

Roles are outlined in the application pack on our website, and we are particularly seeking individuals with experience in the following areas:

• Finance: Ideally possessing up to date accountancy knowledge

• Compliance: Experience of developing and maintaining policies and procedures

• Media, marketing, and communications: Knowledge of strategies and platforms

• Community: Influencer within the local community, aiding insight and maximising impact

• No brief: We welcome interest from anyone who shares our vision and values

We would also like to source a chair of the board, who will take on additional responsibility including periodic check, challenge, and mentoring of the Network Manager.

We particularly encourage interest from young people looking to gain experience of operating at a strategic level, and those from ethnically diverse communities, helping to broaden the views and experiences shaping our direction.

Expectations and time commitment:

As a rough guide we expect the volunteer roles to require no more than five hours per-month on average, possibly less depending on the role. Attendance desired at approximately four full board meetings per-year (likely to be via video call at times to suit the group), as well as regular updates with the network manager. Exact role will be dependent on the individual(s) selected, time available, and agreed responsibilities.
