The Partnership is recruiting two new directors
27th May 2022
Bristol Green Capital Partnership (BGCP) CIC is the company that supports a network of more than 1,000-member organisations whose purpose is to catalyse collective citywide action towards a zero carbon, socially just and nature-rich Bristol. The board of directors provides strategic direction and oversight for the Partnership and staff team and ensures its financial sustainability. For more information of general duties of directors please see the Companies House summary here.
The Partnership is seeking two new directors who will play a vital role in working collaboratively with other board members and the staff team to help ensure the Partnership supports and enables its members to work towards the shared vision.
The term will run for two years from Summer 2022 until Summer 2024 initially. The role is voluntary but reasonable expenses incurred as a result of the role will be covered.
While the successful candidates will be appointed as directors in an individual capacity, they should be from a Partnership member organisation and reside and/or work in the city or immediate region. To ensure independence and a voice for the wider membership, nominees cannot be employees or directors of organisations currently represented on the board or from companies with financial links to the Partnership.
- We believe our work will be stronger with greater board diversity and welcome applications from those who bring experience and perspectives that may currently be underrepresented in the environmental sector and that enhance the diversity of our board of directors. More information about BGCP’s current board of directors can be found here.
- To complement the board’s current mix of skills, we are particularly interested in candidates with experience of community development, commercial and fundraising.
- We understand that in seeking greater board diversity, we have a responsibility to actively work with candidates to remove barriers to participation and we proactively welcome conversations about any steps that we can take to make this role more accessible for candidates, including covering costs for childcare, travel, meeting dietary requirements or meeting timings.
The deadline for applying is 1 August at 5pm with interviews the week commencing 8 August.
