All round business experience and skills in some or all of Communications, HR, Finance, Digital, Legal, or Regulatory needed to strengthen the Trustee Board of our charity which has been successfully delivering counselling services for 40 years.
We are a long established charity with a fine track record, both operationally and financially. CCC has been steadily and sustainably growing for the last 40 years but over that time the environment in which we operate has changed dramatically, and we have not always kept pace with the changes.
We have governance and management structure reforms under way already, but to complete our transition to a modern, 21st century charity delivering much needed relief to people at difficult times in their lives we need to bring different perspectives to our Board.
Our challenge now - your challenge now - is to build on this solid foundation, preserving what is best in our culture while introducing changes in governance, management and strategy so that we can provide the same high levels of service to clients over the next 40 years as we have over the last 40.
Specifically, we need a small number of additional people who will work with other Trustees from varied backgrounds, a team of highly experienced specialist staff and counsellor Members of the charity. You will use both your specialist skills and your all round business and management experience to:
We don’t require much from our prospective additional Trustees. All we want is
OK, so we are being rather demanding! Coming back down to earth, we want to strengthen our existing Board of Trustees by recruiting a small number of people who between them tick as many of these boxes as possible. The one thing you won’t need is counselling expertise, as we have very able counsellors on the Board already.
Your role as a CCC Trustee will be to use your unique blend of skills and experience to shape the future direction of the charity. You won’t be doing this alone. You will share with the other Trustees collective responsibility for determining overall strategy, and you will be assisted by our small group of incredibly hard working staff.
Our business model, in essence, is to provide high quality counselling on a commercial basis and use the surplus to offer low-cost counselling to those who need it but can’t afford the full rate. CCC delivered a total of 3,850 counselling sessions in the year 2017/18 (up 21% on the previous year). Demand for counselling just keeps going up, both in our local area (Cambridgeshire) and its surrounds. And we are determined to do all we can to meet the demand.
