We are looking for a legal Trustee to join our team

Chichester Community Development Trust (CCDT) Trust is at a very exciting point of its development with the Graylingwell Chapel refurbishment and a number of potential new business development opportunities and now looking to strengthen the Trustee Board. We are looking to recruit a new trustee to the CCDT board with a legal background.

The legal trustee does not need to be a specialist in a specific field, but should be willing to familiarise themselves with the legal framework surrounding the organisation’s actions and plans as required. These skills will be particularly useful in considering and executing significant changes to the shape of the organisation including collaborations, mergers, partnerships, contractual obligations and data protection.  Trustees are expected to be the Board sponsor/lead on key projects/activities and work with the CCDT staff team to meet the strategic objectives of the organisation.

The legal trustee’s expertise and engagement will play a significant role in strengthening the board of trustees. In particular, you will help CCDT to ensure it remains legally compliant whilst also playing a critical role in ascertaining the feasibility and challenges entailed in partnership working including the potential of mergers and appraising the implications of contracts, intellectual property and data protection. 

With ambitious plans taking shape, this is a very exciting time to join CCDT and you will have an influence over the organisation, its future development and direction.

Time Commitment: up to 6 days per annum
Duration: Up to a maximum of 9 years
Location: Chichester
Remuneration: Unremunerated. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed
