CCB is an independent charity with over 40 years’ experience in community development work. CCB is the Rural Community Council for Berkshire and works to strengthen and support local communities throughout Berkshire. Our core mission is to inspire communities in Berkshire to thrive. Our vision is for all communities in Berkshire to be strong, sustainable and able to take control of their own futures.

Your skills and experience will be put to use to make a lasting difference in the communities in which you work or live. Perhaps you have some time on your hands due to retirement or other circumstances, or have ideas and skills that would bring benefits to local communities. We are seeking a range of Trustee skills and experience to fulfil roles on our Board so whether you have plenty of time and energy to commit or you have other obligations but can attend an evening meeting once a quarter and help make key decisions we would love to hear from you.

This is an opportunity to enhance your CV, expand your network, meet new people and open doors to possible new career paths!
