The Board seeks to recruit three new individual Trustees who will fulfil all the generic responsibilities of the position of Trustee; for two of these roles we are seeking specific expertise in order to complement the current skillset of the Board:
Communications/ Brand/ Marketing Role
The next phase of our organisation will involve considerable change and we know that communication will be vital to our successful transformation. We have identified the need for an experienced marketing or communications professional to join our Trustee Board.
Rural Affairs Role
Do you have experience and expertise in rural communities and the issues affecting them? Buckinghamshire is made up of diverse communities, urban and rural. Changing policies at national and local level is likely to drive significant change in the next decade. Developments in housing, transport, and road and rail infrastructure projects will impact on the sustainability of communities and the environment.
At Community Impact Bucks, we want to be well-equipped to meet these challenges. In particular, we want to ensure that we have the right representation on the Board to enable us to support our rural communities throughout this transformation. We have identified the need to recruit a new Trustee to the Board who will bring considerable knowledge and experience of rural communities and of the issues affecting them. If you have experience in any of the areas affecting rural communities such as housing; transport; village halls; services; sustainability and are interested in becoming a Trustee, we would be delighted to hear from you.
