The past months have been a momentous period for CCF. Not only has our regular work continued effectively and our financial position has strengthened, but we have also taken the leading role in Cambridgeshire in inspiring and coordinating the community response to the Coronavirus pandemic. This has felt like ‘our moment’ and we have been honoured to be able to enable something so positive during a very difficult time for Cambridgeshire.

We now seek to appoint two or three new Trustees to support us in the next exciting phase of our development.

It is particularly important to CCF to recruit a diversely-drawn Board which includes strong representation of those from similar backgrounds as those we seek to serve through our grant programmes.

CCF is seeking to recruit individuals with skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Marketing
  • Communications and PR
  • Fundraising
  • Donor development and Networking
  • Governance

Terms of Office

Term: CCF’s board members serve a three-year term and are eligible for re-appointment for one additional term of three years.

Remuneration: The role of Chair is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although expenses for travel may be claimed

Locations: CCF covers Cambridgeshire. Board meetings may be held at our office in Cambridge or at other locations across the county.

Time commitment: 4 Board meetings per year. In addition, Trustees are asked to join at least one of the five sub-committees which meet quarterly. In order to better understand CCF’s work and its supporters, Trustees are also encouraged, on occasion, to attend CCF’s public events, and to engage with key stakeholders.
