The Friends of Castle Green are looking to recruit dynamic individuals to extend the skills base of the board of directors of this active Community Interest Company in the heart of Hereford City. The role of Board Director is voluntary and would suit people with the skills to help take Friends of Castle Green into the future, a strong interest in developing community led services and some time to commit to a worthy cause.
It is an exciting time to join the FOCG Team. We have recently been the beneficiary of a Community Asset Transfer from Herefordshire Council of the fabulous Pavilion building on Castle Green itself on a 25-year lease.
FoCG will be concentrating on the renovation and restoration of the Pavilion as a community space, following extensive consultation with the local community. FoCG is currently working to generate grant funding to meet the requirements of a future proof community space that will include a café, on-site historical and environmental interpretation, as well as providing a space to showcase local artwork.
LOTS TO DO!
Do you have the skills and experience to help us?
We are looking for people who have a business background, with experience in buildings and operations, facilities management and/ or hospitality. Some knowledge of grant funding would also be beneficial.
You need to be community minded, good with people, with financial acumen. Experience of the voluntary sector would be beneficial but not a necessity.
Board directors are expected to attend monthly board meetings and the annual general meeting.
