Transition Town Totnes is looking for new Trustees with experience of HR, Financial Management and Accountancy, Management, Organisational Strategy and experience of working in the community or charity sector in the field of social change and environmental sustainability.
We are a community-led charity, working to create a sustainable and healthy community within our local area. We do this by catalysing, supporting and collaborating with a diverse portfolio of grass-roots projects, enterprises, partnerships and individuals embedded in the town of Totnes, South Devon.
With our Coordination, these groups form a movement that innovates models of community leadership and systems thinking across different sectors, (with different goals) whilst simultaneously working towards a common vision – ‘To build a happy, healthy, caring community that is environmentally, economically and socially resilient in a changing world’
We manage, deliver and collaborate with a number of projects and partnerships based around our key themes :
- Local economy
- Health and wellbeing
- Housing, building, energy and transport
- Inner transition
- The arts
TTT is a registered charity. Currently we have 5 Trustees whose experience includes: law, education, health, accountancy, social and community work, and organisational management. The key role of Trustees is to ensure financial due diligence and that the objects of our charity are adhered to.
Two of our longstanding Trustees are looking to retire over the coming year and we are therefore planning to have vacancies for two or three new Trustees who have the passion, enthusiasm and experience to make a difference to our organisation.
To apply please email a covering letter and CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date: Wednesday 14th February
Interview date: Tuesday 20th February
