Do you have a passion for strengthening community action in Bexley?

Bexley Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) is recruiting 3 trustees to join the current 5 volunteer trustees on the BVSC Board. Everything we do is to strengthen our local Voluntary Community sector to be the best that they can be in supporting local Bexley residents and communities. Our members include organisations supporting a wide variety of community causes, from food banks to education, sport to domestic abuse.

What skills do I need?

We are interested in people who have worked in the health, commercial or housing sectors to bring new perspectives to our Board. No previous trustee experience is necessary, and we'd love to hear from anyone who thinks they could help BVSC grow and thrive. We would particularly welcome applications from people of colour, as we want to improve the racial diversity of our trustee board to strengthen our work.

As a BVSC trustee you will receive: • Induction, training and reimbursement of expenses • Opportunity to develop new skills and experience • Opportunity to contribute to strategic decision making which benefits hundreds of local Voluntary and Community organisations.  You may be interested in our Impact summary 2020 for a flavour of our work.

If you are interested in helping to progress our cause, please submit a statement and CV outlining why you are interested in the role and what you feel you can bring to BVSC.

Please send to Vikki Wilkinson and if you are shortlisted we will contact you for an informal, but structured interview Please do contact Vikki if you have any questions.
