Working parties

Working Parties

The responsibilities and expectations of each working party?

The foremost role of each working party is to present proposals and devise plans that deliver efficient working processes. 
The Board of Trustees will review proposals and empower our working parties to deliver the agreed objectives.
Working parties are micro-management teams, so achieving agreed goals will likely require additional support from volunteers outside of the working party.

Our shared goal is one of continuous improvement – resulting in a progressive and cohesive team to take our organisation forward.

We envisage a maximum of 6 people per working party. 
Applicants should share our team values:

  • Communicate well with each other
  • Focus on goals and results
  • Everyone contributes their fair share
  • Offer each other support and welcome collaboration
  • Be organised
  • Deliver on your commitments
  • Have fun!

Being a member of a working party will require a high level of committment - with this in mind you may only sit on one working party.
You are free to submit multiple applications and should complete a form for each unique application. You will be notified as to if you have been successful.
