This is a fantastic opportunity to join the friendly and welcoming team at CCB as we enter a period of growth with new exciting projects to help support our rural communities.

Our purpose is to inspire action at a community level that improves people’s quality of life. If you feel at ease and enjoy talking to people this could be the role for you. If you also have previous experience working with or on a parish or town council then we would also love to hear from you. Town and parish councils are an essential part of the structure of local democracy and have a vital role in ensuring their community is well-represented and vibrant.

What difference will you make?

Your skills and experience will be used to make a lasting difference in our local communities. If you have more time to dedicate, then this could be the perfect role for you as we are a small team and rely on volunteer support to help complete key task and finish jobs. Alternatively, if you have a busy working life then there are only a handful of, mostly evening, meetings to attend a year in which you could attend while sharing your expertise, providing guidance, and helping to make important decisions. We have over 50 years of experience and history in community development work and are an active member of the Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) Network. We offer a great induction package to the charity which includes mentoring from current Trustees. We’re a really friendly bunch and will ensure a warm welcome to anyone interested.
