Plunkett UK is looking for up to two Trustees to join our Board.

We are a national charity supporting people in rural areas to set up and run successful businesses in community ownership. We do this to achieve our UK-wide vision for resilient, thriving and inclusive rural communities.

We are looking for up to two Trustees with a genuine commitment to community businesses, a clear understanding of rural issues, interest in innovative and new ways of working, to help move to help move the charity forwards at an exciting time in its growth and evolution.

Plunkett is committed to being reflective of the inclusive communities we serve. You don’t need to have previous trustee experience, we value personal expertise and lived experience – your personal characteristics and life outside of work – as well as your technical expertise and career history. We believe that a diversity of experience and expertise makes us a stronger organisation.

If you are interested in joining the Board of Plunkett UK, and helping us grow our network of community-owned businesses UK-wide then we look forward to hearing from you.
