Please find details below of current job vacancies at Broxtowe Women’s Project (BWP)
BWP are an established charity, in our 23rd year, that ensures that women and children affected by domestic abuse are empowered to be safe and in control of their own lives. We do this through a small, dedicated staff team, and a wide-ranging group of passionate volunteers at all levels in the organisation. Locally born actress, Samantha Beckinsale, is our inaugural Patron and we have many exciting collaborations and partnerships set-up, including with Nottinghamshire FA.
Are you looking to make a big difference to the lives of others?
We are looking for new volunteer Trustees with passion to serve those affected by domestic abuse, to help inform how BWP delivers its work both now and in the future.
We want our team to be as diverse as possible to be representative of the women and families we serve in the towns throughout Broxtowe. We’re particularly interested in people with expertise in the areas of HR/employment law, income generation, family and social services. We are currently seeking a Vice Chair, but opportunities for other key roles on the Board may become available as other trustees step-down from their roles over time.
Whether you are an experienced trustee, or are wanting to take your first step at supporting a charity in this way, we’d love to hear from you and will provide all of the support you may need to thrive in your volunteering role. As a trustee you will contribute to positively changing the lives of those affected by domestic abuse through robust strategic governance and development of the charity. In return, we offer training and reimbursable expenses, plus opportunities to develop new skills and to network within the sector.
The expected time commitment is approximately 2-3 days a month which can fit around your availability.
The Board currently meets once a month, remotely through Zoom, except for our March, June, September and December meetings, which are in-person in Beeston, Nottingham.
We are excited to hear from you and can share more about our recruitment process for trustees after an initial expression of interest from you.
To express an interest, please contact our Chair: firstname.lastname@example.org
