ESSENCE of EXETER CIC registered as a Community Interest company in March 2016 and is developing its work to support its network of members and the wider social enterprise community in Exeter and the surrounding area.
We are looking for new people to join the existing three Board members who have seen it through the initial stages and are committed to the future hoping to add to the skills base and bring new thinking to the process.
Now is an exciting time to join the Board. The CIC has been established and the membership base is starting to grow as the company builds its offer and develops its role in the social enterprise arena.
The company is in its youth and keen to spread its wings, so is seeking people with an appetite for challenge and problem solving to help take it forward into the next phase.
Board meetings are every month to six weeks during this growth phase so anyone joining would need the time and capacity to support this either in person or remotely through the use of technology. Directors are appointed annually.
Successful applicants would bring amongst others the following attributes:. Experience: Business growth and development across sectors; Developing new activity. Knowledge: Commercial operations and strategy; the meaning of Impact; Support networks; Social Enterprise (desirable not essential) Skills that would enhance the Board: Financial Planning and income generation; Influencing; Marketing; Enterprise development Campaigning; Change management; Customer care; Legal.
