We are looking for 3 new Directors as well as someone to act as Chair on our Board, all of whom will play a vital role in ensuring that CG does its work in the best way possible and within the law. You don’t have to have been on a Board before to be a CG Director, if you’re passionate about our work and creativity in Gloucestershire, then you could be who we are looking for!
