Local charity Community Council for Berkshire (CCB) is seeking a Chair to provide leadership to our committed and talented Board of Trustees. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in Berkshire’s voluntary sector and help shape the strategic direction of this county based charity.
CCB is an independent charity with over 44 years’ experience in community development work. We are part of the ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) Network of Rural Community Councils (www.acre.org.uk).
Our vision is for all communities in Berkshire to be strong, sustainable and able to take control of their own futures. Our mission is to inspire communities in Berkshire to thrive. We do this by providing information, advice, support and training to individuals, groups and other organisations. We work as enablers, raising money locally and nationally to deliver projects that have positive, long-lasting effects.
Applicants should have previous experience of being the trustee of a charity and have the ability to effectively chair board meetings, provide support for the Chief Executive, and ensure the effective governance of the organisation. Knowledge of the issues facing rural communities in the 21st century would be a distinct advantage.
