Details of Role: 

Have you been searching for an opportunity to share and develop your skills, experience, knowledge and connections?

Do you want to contribute to the development of a thriving voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector that empowers people and communities?

Could you help shape future services that support and develop VCSE organisations?

We're seeking skilled and enthusiastic people from a range of backgrounds and communities to join our Board of Trustees. Voscur is the support and development agency for Bristol's VCSE sector; we support organisations in and around Bristol to increase their impact and help more local people. As a Trustee, you would work to ensure that the organisation adheres to its charitable objectives.

We are currently seeking new organisational or individual members to join a team drawn from our membership bringing varied skills and experience.

Current Trustees and our CEO are very eager to increase diversity within the Voscur Board. Applications are therefore strongly encouraged from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans and Non-binary people; people of faith; and young people as these are currently under-represented on our Board.

We have recently pioneered work to help VCSE organisations understand socio-economic inequalities and therefore are keen to recruit more trustees with personal experience of living in poverty.

We're looking for trustees with these types of skills or experience:

• Commissioning and procurement
• Human Resources
• Communications
• Marketing
• Finance

If you don't have these specialist skills but are passionate about the VCSE sector – we'd still love to talk to you.

How to Apply: 

Please download the information pack, below, and get excited about joining our team.

If you think you want to get involved after reading the pack, the first step is to contact to arrange an informal discussion with our Chair, Lin Whitfield, or our CEO, Rebecca Mear.
