Do you have a management/leadership background at a strategic level or offer other valuable skills?

CRNS is a Community Interest Company, Limited by Guarantee and is looking to appoint a number of dynamic, charismatic volunteers to lead the future development and sustainability of resilient communities. Current Board Members have backgrounds in Resilience, the Humanitarian Sector, Business and Medical Research; strong and effective Boards bring a range of skills and experience to the table.
CRNS has actively pursued the development of strong communities resilient to the impact of all disruptive events, building greater awareness of risk and encouraging activities to remove or limit risk. But we are also keen to promote the advancement of individual and community health and social cohesion.
Ample opportunity for a dynamic individual to help build a better future – you perhaps?
Working to establish an area wide network of community resilience volunteers, the organisation seeks to identify and address local risks such as flooding, severe weather, pandemic or power failure. It engages, supports and encourages local communities and partner agencies to work together to develop plans and mitigation strategies to increase the resilience of individual households, businesses and the wider community.
Academic qualifications are not a prerequisite, we would be more interested in how your skills, experience and personality will complement the existing Board Membership.

Energy and Enthusiasm.
Experience in forward planning in policy, finance and business development.
Experience in the Health and Social Care.
Webmaster / software development.
Negotiating and influencing at corporate level.
An effective communicator at all levels.
Ability to recognise and exploit opportunities to achieve CRNS objectives.
