We are recruiting for enterprising, creative and influential individuals to join our Trustee board


As a membership organisation that is owned by the Voluntary sector it is vital that our board represents its varied membership. 

We have multiple places available for individuals from our membership 

It is important to us that our board represents our membership we are welcoming applications from any of our members and would encourage individuals from a range of voluntary sector organisations including:

  • Volunteer led organisations/groups with no paid staff
  • Small voluntary sector organistions/charities (income under £100,000)
  • Faith based organisations
  • Not for profit organisations e.g. CIC's

We are also keen to recruit young trustees (aged 18-35)

We welcome representatives from any role within a member organisation.  For example you may volunteer, be a paid staff member or be on the governing board of that charity.  All that you need to do is ensure that the leadership of the organisation signs the form to say you are representing them.


What we offer you

  • By joining the board you will have the chance to influence and direct how support services are delivered to VCFS organisations within Cheshire East
  • Experience in management and governance.  The Board has oversight and at CVS it's important that we use the knowledge and skills to direct and guide what we do. 
  • A supported process - we have recently reviewed our process and have put a new structure in to support you and give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to be a Trustee


What we need from you

  • We want Trustees that actively share their views and knowledge to help make CVS the best organisation it can be
  • Attending our Board meetings. Our board meets every 2 months on a Thursday evening - currently via zoom but this will be a mix of zoom and physical meetings in the future


Applications are welcome on an ongoing basis.
