We are looking for committed individuals to expand the range of trustee skills as well as to consolidate existing competencies as Cheshire Community Development Trust’s plans for the future.
As a Trustee of Cheshire Community Development Trust, you will have a commitment to the charity and its mission, and ensure that it is effectively governed in line with this mission and with the charity’s values. You will be able to devote the necessary time (approximately 12 days a year) to the role, and will bring strategic vision, independent judgement and an ability to think creatively.
We want to have a wide range of people on the Board and seek to be representative of the diverse population of our communities. There is no need to have trustee experience to apply but an overall passion to make a difference is essential. Due to recent long standing members of the Board standing down we are particularly interested in talking to people who can offer experience in business development, marketing, finance and human resources in order to grow our expertise. There are challenges ahead for Cheshire Community Development Trust and for community services in general in terms of funding and commissioning but the opportunities are there for us to grow and develop our organisation if we continue to be bold, brave, creative and innovative.
