Who we are

RedbridgeCVS is a local infrastructure organisation working to support strong and resilient

communities where people lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives. We do this by:

• Harnessing the power and potential of people and communities.

• Connecting, strengthening and championing the voluntary, community and social enterprise

sector.

• Influencing meaningful change and transformation in systems, policies and practice


The role

.What are we looking for in new Trustees? Firstly, and most importantly, we are looking for Trustees who are passionate about the power of community and who are committed to supporting a strong and thriving voluntary and community sector in Redbridge.We also want to ensure that as a Board we have the necessary skills and experience to deliver our new strategy. We have reviewed the skills of our existing Trustees and believe that we will have better discussions and make better decisions if we increase our collective knowledge of digital technology and human resources.

In addition, all Trustees should have:

• A commitment to the organisation and a willingness to devote the necessary time and effort. You will be expected to read and digest information before meetings, and come prepared to contribute to discussions to find the best way forward.

• Sound judgement and good analytical skills. You will be an independent thinker, able to critique and scrutinise information.

• Energy and enthusiasm.• An understanding of the legal duties and responsibilities of Trustees.• Experience of leadership and working as part of a team.

• A commitment to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

• A strong commitment to promoting equality and social justice.

Don’t worry if you don’t meet all of the criteria when you apply. As long as you’re willing to learn, we can provide training and support to help you develop in your role. We will talk to you about any support you might need as part of the interview process.

Lastly, as part of our commitment to ensuring that our Board reflects the diversity of the communities we serve, we are particularly keen to hear from candidates who are younger or from global majority communities for these roles. We also actively encourage applications from within our membership.
