Board members sought to help disadvantaged people
Have you time to spare to use your skills and experience to help others? We are looking for new directors for Colebridge Enterprises to help us to take our work with disadvantaged trainees to the next level.
Colebridge Enterprises is a young and innovative, not-for-profit enterprise arm of a Solihull based charity that seeks to improve the life chances of learning disabled and other disadvantaged people by offering a combination of employment and training in our manufacturing sub-assembly business.
Our Board is seeking additional members to assist in steering the organisation through a planned programme of growth, with a view to increasing our social impact whilst achieving a reduction in our grant dependency. We are looking for three energetic, experienced and committed people to join our board of directors and bring their influence to bear upon our development.
There has never been a greater need for the service which we provide, as the tide of employment turns whilst the benefits system undergoes increasing restriction. Our beneficiaries are those who struggle to get a foothold on the employment ladder and our aim is to give them that secure first step from which they will not look back. Whilst we have only been operating our assembly business for eighteen months, we already have success stories to report.
We are ideally seeking people with the experience in the following areas:
- One new member with a financial background to become our Treasurer
- One new member with business development experience to support our quest for new customers
- One new member with a manufacturing background to support operational growth.
However, if you have other experience you think could be valuable, and are willing to invest your energy and time in our work then we would still be delighted to hear from you.
These roles are likely to require up to 8-15 hours of your time per month, including attendance at a monthly board meeting.
To discuss our requirements further and express an interest, please contact our CEO, Dave Pinwell, on 07500 081216 or via email@example.com in the first instance.
We look forward to hearing from you!
