Join our Charity at an exciting time! 

 

What will you be doing?

Banana Enterprise Network is a charity dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and sustainable development of Grade 2 Listed Historic Rock Hall in Farnworth, helping combat poverty in Farnworth and providing various community activities. Our mission is to safeguard Rock Hall architecturally and culturally, for future generations, ensuring the Hall contributes to the vibrant life of our communities.

Thanks to funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we have recently undertaken a governance review to ensure that our charity is fully prepared and fit for owning and successfully managing a multi-use community focussed and historic building following a Community Asset Transfer from Bolton Council (who own the building currently).

We are looking for inspirational and dynamic applicants who are passionate about the work we do. Following the recent governance review we are particularly interested in recruiting trustees with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Finance expertise
  • Charity Governance
  • Income generation (e.g. enterprise/business development and fundraising, particularly to ensure ongoing viability of the project post-restoration of Rock Hall).
  • PR, communications and marketing.
  • Management of heritage buildings
  • Safeguarding

What difference will you make?

By joining Banana Enterprise Network as a Trustee, you’ll have the unique opportunity to make a meaningful impact for the benefit of the people of Farnworth, which is one of the 10% most deprived areas in the UK.

Your professional expertise and passion will play a crucial role in shaping the preservation of Rock Hall and the future of our organisation. Trustees serve a term of three years, with the possibility of reappointment for further terms of three years up to a maximum of 9 years. Successful applicants will be expected to attend at least four meetings a year, either online or in-person, to contribute to the work of the charity between meetings and will have over-arching legal duties for the governance of the charity.
