Brighton and Hove Community Land Trust

Register your Interest

Brighton & Hove Community Land Trust is looking for new Directors to help build the movement for community-led housing and land in the city.

BHCLT Directors are expected to attend monthly meetings, arranged at times which best suit the group. There are also sub-group meetings to attend and Directors need to keep up to date with developments within the Trust, working with a part time Hub coordinator. There will be additional expectations outside the meetings, depending on the skills and interest of the Director. We need our Directors be ‘hands-on’ working together as a team to realise the ambitions of this organisation to have a positive impact in the city.

Skills

We recognise that a wide and diverse set of skills and experiences is vital to developing the Trust and that the more diverse our movement is, the stronger it will be.

We are determined to address any systemic racism and discrimination in our work and projects. Our values inform this process and are in place for everyone we support. We recognise the limitations of our current board as consisting of all white and able-bodied people. Our stated aim is to have a board which brings the voices of all communities to this endeavour. We especially welcome applications from people who feel under represented.We are particularly looking for people with skills, knowledge and experience in:

  • Managing housing co-ops
  • Membership engagement
  • Brighton and Hove City Council’s decision-making structures including planning
  • Making effective communications part of how we work, training and embedding systems and information
  • Administrative processes and ‘good housekeeping’ of a small organisation.

Practical Considerations
