We are seeking a new committee member to help us define and determine our strategic direction and to input their creative and functional expertise. This input will help us tackle a challenging business environment but also support the varied social and environmental aims of the organisation. The time commitment of this post is not huge, with only around 6 meetings a year, however your input will have real impact on where we take the organisation as we continue to expand.
