As Share Bristol steps up to be a registered charity, we need some help to ensure we are excellently run.
Do you have an eye for detail? Consider yourself a reliable, safe pair of hands? Have experience of or aspire to work with a Board of Trustees? Care about the environment and want to actually make a difference in your local area?
We recently transitioned from a Community Interest Company to a Registered Charity (read our blog on this here), and this has increased the regulatory requirements on our small organisation. We pride ourselves on doing things well and professionally, and want to ensure we meet all the standards rightly expected of charities, and ideally exceed them.
Our Trustee team each have a portfolio of responsibilities, such as finance or fundraising, and also spend hours each month volunteering in a Library of Things. But we don’t have anyone whose focus is on governance and compliance, and, from our experience elsewhere, we think an objective Company or Board Secretary would really help.
Although there are some things that we definitely want this person to do for us, and with us, there are also lots of other opportunities to get involved, depending on your interests and preferences. We’re a friendly, highly collaborative team, getting involved and supporting each other when needed, and we welcome people from backgrounds that are not well represented in the charity or environmental sector.
If you think you could work alongside our Board of Trustees, helping us to go from strength to strength and ensure more and more people across Bristol are borrowing instead of buying, please get in touch by emailing email@example.com and telling us a bit about you.
