RECRUITMENT

TRUSTEE (CRCC)
Help shape the future of Cornwall’s Communities by becoming a Trustee of Cornwall Rural Community Charity (CRCC)

A statement from Jeremy Hibbard, Chief Executive CRCC:

“We’ve been helping Cornish towns and villages since the end of the Second World War and we understand the wellbeing value of being part of a strong community: making friends, sharing common interests and having a place to meet. Now the government is realising it too, with new emphasis on social prescribing – the practice of offering preventative activities to keep people fit, happy and healthy without the need for medical intervention. It’s a policy that puts CRCC and its activities right at the heart of Cornwall’s future and we’re working now to make sure we deliver.”

To help us maintain our position as one of Cornwall’s most respected charities, we need experienced members of the public to join our Board. Being a trustee is an interesting and rewarding role; the governance of the organisation needs the same skill set as a commercial business, such as experience in finance, human resources, strategy and customer care. Individuals from all backgrounds, with varied experience, can add value.

We want trustees with both skills and strong personal values that mirror the charity’s objectives – plus a real passion to add value through good governance. We want our Board to reflect different backgrounds and walks of life to represent the changing communities of Cornwall.

CRCC is a registered charity operated as a company limited by guarantee. The Board of Directors of the company are also trustees of the charity.

At present we are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community from across Cornwall, who have one or more of the following skills:

  • Experience of commercial accounting with a focus on management accounts.
  • Expertise in HR management.

Board meetings are held once a quarter at the CRCC Office in Truro, on a Thursday. The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of CRCC and guides and supports the Chief Executive and his staff.

To find out more about joining the Board, please contact Karlene Stokes by emailing stokeskarlene@gmail.com
