Chair of trustee board

Post date 28 May 2020


We are looking for a new Chair of our trustee board to join us at this very exciting time for the organisation.

Hours: 5-10 hours per month – current zoom meetings monthly in the evening

We are three locally rooted charities in East Bristol: Up Our Street, Easton Community Centre and Felix Road Adventure Playground. Having worked together for many years we formally merged to become one organisation in May 2020 with the aim of making Easton and Lawrence Hill a place of possibility for everyone.

We have new board made up of board members from the three merged organisations but we are looking to increase the skills and capacities relating to leadership.

We are looking for someone who can support our board to form into one unified strategic leadership group, provide supervisory support to the CEO and act as an ambassador for the organisation.

The organisation boasts a range of assets including an adventure playground, a community centre and four retail shops. It delivers a community magazine to 13,500 homes and carries out research, community development projects, events and communications aimed at promoting civic participation and improving equality of opportunities across the Easton and Lawrence Hill wards.

This is an exciting time for the organisation as it looks to implement a new vision, three-year strategy, enlarged staff team, constitution and membership structure. So if this sounds like the position for you please take a look at the job pack below.

Closing date: 5pm, Tuesday 30 June

To discuss the role contact: Stacy Yelland (CEO) on 07810 506980, stacy@upourstreet.org.uk
(conversations with current chair and vice chairs can be arranged)
