Closing Date:

Contract Type: 
Trustee/Director
Location: 
Bristol
Details of Role: 

Re:work are a long-established Alternative Learning Provider based on Filwood Broadway in Knowle West. We currently create many of the opportunities for our work placement students (aged from 12 upwards) through the Social Enterprises also based on the Broadway that we run.

Over the next 18 months, with a major investment via the Levelling Up Fund coming onto the Broadway, we face both a generational challenge and opportunity to secure the long-term viability of our organisation by developing new and scaling up existing Social Enterprises in order to take full advantage of the redevelopment of the Broadway and diversify and increase our earned income streams.

To this end, the Board of Trustees are seeking either to co-opt a new Trustee or work with an independent advisor to the Board who has a background in and current knowledge of Social Enterprise development and up-scaling. We are particularly interested in identifying and up-skilling members of the local community who may become future Social Entrepreneurs on the Broadway or become part of the management or staff team that run new re:work enterprises.

We would like a minimum initial commitment of six months but would prefer to work with someone who would like to support us through the LUF development period to the end of 2025.

Our Board meets in person monthly and has an interim Team call in between meetings. Our Trustees with other specialist knowledge also support our CEO and Senior Management Team around relevant issues, and this new appointment is also designed to provide some further support / input for our recently appointed CEO who has a background in community enterprise start-ups and coaching.

How to Apply: 

If you are interested in this role or would like to find out more, please initially contact our CEO Clive Gross via email at clive@reworkltd.org.uk
