Work With Us
Join our Board of Trustees
Would you like to help Frome Birth Talk support pregnant people and new parents?
We are currently recruiting a number of voluntary positions to join our Board of Trustees and we'd love to hear from you.
Frome Birth Talk provides free professional counselling and peer support for pregnant and new mothers in the Frome area. In 2020 we received a five-year grant from the National Lottery, which will enable us to move to the next stage of our development.
Whether you are an experienced Trustee or want to take your first step at board level, we would love to hear from you. Frome Birth Talk is an equal opportunities organisation and would especially welcome applications from minority ethnic people, neurodivergent people, people with disabilities, young adults, people from the LGBTQ+ community, and people with lived experience relevant to our work. Previous trustee experience is not necessary to join the Board.
We are looking for trustees with skills or experience in one or more of the following areas:
Time commitment depends on the role, but trustees would be expected to attend a minimum of six Trustee meetings per year (in Frome or online), one away day and some ad hoc work.
For an informal chat, please contact our Director Suzy Cristinacce on 07870 323547
To apply, email your completed application form to: email@example.com
Chair of Trustees
We are a small charity that provides free counselling services, drop-in groups, exercise classes and wellbeing-focused activities for parents during pregnancy and the first year after birth. We are seeking a new Chair to work alongside our Director and Trustees to develop the organisation’s long-term growth and impact.
The ideal candidate will have experience of strategic development in the third sector, excellent management skills and a willingness to work in partnership with all of our stakeholders.
Training and expenses will be provided.
Please download an application pack and email it to us, or email our Director Suzy to arrange an informal chat.
Closing date: Friday 11th March 2022.
