Join our incredible team

We're looking for dedicated and passionate people to join our team. We want to hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds because it makes us stronger.

If you share our values and enthusiasm for access to Bristol and Bath’s parks, you will find a home here.

All applicants will be treated equally but we want to build our level of lived experience of barriers to parks. Therefore we are particularly interested in receiving applications from people who are from ethnically diverse backgrounds, Disabled people, people who are caring for a loved one, and/or from low-income households.

Trustees

We are currently seeking new Trustees to join our board. You will be joining the charity at an exciting time in our journey. Established in 2019, we are celebrating our fifth year and have just adopted a new strategy. Over the last few years, we have demonstrated our ability to deliver significant impact for communities. In 2023, we reached thousands of people by working across 40 parks in Bristol and Bath and our impact is set to further increase this year.

By becoming a Trustee, you will help shape our future by sharing your experience and passion to drive our strategy.

The main responsibilities of a Trustee are to:

  • oversee the strategic direction of the charity as it scales to meet demand, and support the CEO in managing this growth;
  • use their expertise to help guide the process;
  • ensure the organisation works within the law and in line with its governing document and policies;
  • keep informed about the activities of the charity in order to maintain effective oversight;
  • take a financial overview and ensure that the organisation’s finances are adequate and responsibly managed;
  • promote the work and safeguard the reputation of Your Park Bristol and Bath.

Skills and experience needed

You do not need to have prior experience of being a Trustee or experience working with boards. We will provide training to fully induct you into the role and you will be buddied up with one of our longer standing trustees to support you in your first six months.

We are currently recruiting Trustees with specific skill sets to complement our existing board.

Furthermore, we need to improve the diversity of our team and our trustees. We need to be more representative of the communities we support, ensuring our work is informed by a broad range of perspectives and leading to better decision making. We’re particularly interested in receiving applications from people who are from ethnically diverse backgrounds, Disabled people, unpaid carers, people from low-income households and people living in Bath.

How to apply

If you would like to apply to become a Trustee, we would be very grateful if you could send your CV, along with a letter outlining the reasons why you are interested in the role and the contribution you think you could make by 30th April 2024 to our CEO, Charlee, using the details below.
