Call for Trustees



Torbay Community Development Trust was established in 2013 to support the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE) in Torbay and build its sustainability. After a 12 month establishment phase we are now seeking Trustees willing to govern the organisation as it expands its support to the sector, working closely with public and private partners. Torbay faces significant challenges in the coming years – but it also has many assets. If you like to focus on what is strong and not on what is wrong, then help us build the Trust to support our communities.


We are looking for individuals with skills in strategic leadership, financial management, performance management, legal matters, fundraising, marketing, developing partnerships and human resources, and experience in one or more of the areas of VCSE activities in the Bay. The TCDT is a company limited by guarantee with chartable status and Trustees are elected on an annual basis for an initial term of up to 3 years. This Board is not for the feint-hearted.


Please apply with your CV and a covering letter, outlining what you could contribute to the Trust, to Trustees Recruitment, Torbay Community Development Trust, 4-8 Temperance Street, Torquay, Devon TQ2 5PU or by noon on the 4th July 2014.  Applicants will be invited to an assessment afternoon with an independent panel on Tuesday 8th July 2014. The panel will make Trustee recommendations to the members of the organisation in advance of the Annual General Meeting, which is at 4pm on Friday 18th July 2014. For more information please see the attached Trustee Role Description and Summary of TCDT Priorities.

Further information on the TDCT can be found at, or call 01803 212638.
