Cumbria CVS – Trustee Vacancies


Are you driven to make a difference?

Do you wish to support a strong voluntary sector working collectively across Cumbria for the greater good?

Are you a people focussed individual?

Do you value diversity, integrity, respect and transparency?

Are you looking for a new opportunity to develop your skills?

We are looking to enhance the strengths of our existing board by recruiting new trustees. The role of trustee is vital for holding the organisation to account and ensuring public confidence, for determining the overall direction of the organisation and providing leadership.

We are keen to reflect the diversity of the Cumbria population in all its characteristics; including but not limited to, ethnicity, gender, faith/non-faith, age and disability. We are looking particularly for someone with financial qualifications, with the aim of providing succession to our Treasurer role.

We are also very interested in hearing from people with skills/experience in other areas such as Legal, Digital, HR or Quality. Ideally candidates would be based in – or have a good knowledge of – the communities and organisations in Allerdale, Copeland and/or Barrow as these areas are under-represented on our Board. Candidates from other parts of Cumbria and nearby areas will also be considered.

At Cumbria CVS, we are looking for people who will reflect the diversity of Cumbria ensuring that both our organisation and the sector are more relevant to and more reflective of the people, communities and places we serve.

Disabled people, those from Black Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, men and people under 30 are under-represented in our workforce and so we particularly encourage applications from people in these groups.
