Brecon Advice Centre is an independent organisation providing advice that is free, confidential and impartial. It is available for everyone regardless of their race, gender, sexuality, disability, religion, age or marital status.

What will you be doing?

As a member of the Centre’s Management Committee to govern i.e. directing and controlling the organisation through collective decision making.

Together the Management Committee Members must fulfil the 6 Core Governance Functions:

  • Determine Mission and Strategy – setting the organisation’s direction and determining how it will get there.
  • Accountability – being held to account for the actions of the organisation and holding those who carry out the work (staff and/or volunteers) to account.
  • Look after the committee – ensuring committee renewal (recruitment, induction and retirement), effective decision making and information sharing processes, positive group dynamics, and reflection, learning and development for the committee as necessary.
  • Safeguard assets – acting as custodian of the assets, tangible (money, property etc) and intangible (organisation’s reputation and name), ensuring that assets are used appropriately and constitutionally. Ensuring that there are sufficient assets for the organisation’s survival.
  • Act as ‘boundary-spanner’ – linking the organisation to its stakeholders, such as members, the community, funders etc.

What are we looking for?

Management Committee Members should:

  • Have a commitment to the organisation and its aims.
  • Have a willingness to devote the necessary time and effort.
  • Possess good judgement and independence of mind.
  • Show a willingness to work collectively as part of a group.
  • Seek constructive debate and dialogue over confrontation.

What difference will you make?

Brecon Advice Centre has successfully evolved over the past twenty years since its formation as an independent advice centre but now needs to refresh the Trustees to mee the challenges of the digtal age an to take the centre forward to 2030.

What's in it for the volunteer?

Being a Trustee presents an opportunity for the right person to contribute to an important local cause whilst bringing something unique to the centre.
