Become a Trustee

We are looking for skilled trustees who can help manage a vibrant centre. If you want to give something back to your community by managing other volunteers, fundraising for the centre or offering legal expertise, please get in touch. We are currently looking for a trustee with digital and marketing experience.

Trustee with digital and marketing experience

What you’ll do:

  • provide thought-leadership on digital and marketing best practices
  • guide and deliver digital and marketing strategy development and roll-out
  • manage the centre’s Twitter account and newsletter
  • mentor/support any digital and marketing staff or consultants
  • attend Board meetings every month and contribute to the governance of the centre.

Although we’ve had a website for a number of years we now need to increase our use of social media to connect with a community of local people who use the centre as well as volunteers and supporters.

You’ll help us improve our digital communications and marketing to attract new users and supporters as well as connecting with existing ones. You’ll also lead our digital fundraising activities including possible crowdfunding opportunities to support our exciting building project.

This is vital, interesting work with a small but friendly and focussed team (meet the Trustees).
