Development Assistant role 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to apply for the role of Development Assistant. We were delighted by the strength of the applications. Update coming soon!

Volunteer with BCM 

We are looking for experienced helpers to ‘micro-volunteer’ (just a couple of hours every now and again) by offering face-to-face support at our BCM surgeries across Birmingham.

In return we offer you the chance to be part of our evolving charity in its infancy, benefiting from networking and learning opportunities created by our events. As our motto goes: “Everyone has something to learn and everyone has something to teach”.

If you are interested in volunteering with BCM please send an introductory email to info@birminghamcommunitymatters.org.uk, briefly outlining your experience within community or volunteering organisations, and where you may like to help within BCM. We look forward to hearing from you.

Trustees wanted

Do you have the knowledge, skills, enthusiasm and experience we’re looking for to help BCM make a positive difference to local communities?

We would love you to consider becoming a BCM trustee.

In order to ensure the proper strategic management of its activities, finances and employment of staff, BCM is delighted to be recruiting for trustees to strengthen its existing board.

We’re looking for trustees who have knowledge, skills and experience in:

* Financial management
* Human resources
* Marketing
* Social media
* The private sector.

We also need trustees who are able to represent:

* BCM users, helpers and sectors
* Birmingham’s geography and demography.

We recognise the importance of your own professional development. Resources are available to our trustees, supporting you in the role and to meet training costs.

In return for your time and skills, you will benefit from being part of a small Birmingham charity in its formative years, which has the potential to strengthen communities and create positive change from grassroots level.

Prior to any formal application, you will be offered the opportunity to have an informal discussion with an existing BCM trustee.
