Changing Lives in Cheshire Fantastic Trustees Wanted
Changing Lives in Cheshire (CLiC), our recently launched Charity, are now looking for experienced, energetic and visionary people to join us as Trustees.
At CliC we provide people with new opportunities and deliver a wide range of business services to make Cheshire a better place to be; its an exciting and fast paced environment, and we are looking for trustees who are comfortable working in an entrepreneurial organisation which is seeking to continue to grow rapidly, respond to new opportunities and change even more lives.
Every day we are working hard to do the things which make our community feel better about itself. Changing Lives in Cheshire is about much more than recycling furniture, bric a brac and electrical appliances to those that desperately need them, It’s about the people we engage to help us do this. Changing Lives in Cheshire is about the lives we turn around every day.

We are particularly interested in applications from people who can demonstrate expertise in any of the following disciplines: Legal, Contractual, Financial, Employment/HR, Operational Management or Waste Licensing. The Trustees will meet every two months, usually in the evening; however there is an expectation that Trustees will also be involved in other activity between meetings, therefore you should be willing to provide approximately 1 day of your time per month.
Please apply with your CV, and a brief supporting statement which outlines: · Why you are interested in this role; · What you think you can bring to this role; · Your understanding of the role of a Trustee; and, · What you think the main opportunities and threats to CLiC are in the coming 12 months. Please email your application to Deina Smith, Chair of Trustees at: firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm on the 30th of June. Interviews will be held during July.
This is an unpaid role, although Trustees can claim out of pocket expenses.
If you have any questions about the process, or would like any additional information please contact Gary Cliffe or Deina Smith
