We are working in partnership with Chichester Counselling Services (CCS), a registered charity, whose aim is to provide affordable counselling and training services to the community of Chichester and the wider areas of West Sussex and East Hampshire. CCS’s psychodynamic training programme, accredited by the BACP, has a reputation for rigour and depth. The counselling offered is frequently recommended by local health professionals and is well-respected in the community: around two thirds of their clients approach CCS having been encouraged to do so by professional advisors or by their family, friends, or employers.
CCS are now seeking a new Chair, a Treasurer and Trustees to enhance and grow the Board of Trustees. You will have a passion for supporting the charity sector and with knowledge and/or interest in psychodynamic counselling. However, we also actively seeking individuals with a finance qualification and/or senior finance experience, lived experience of having been through counselling, and/or experience of either working within a charity or having been on the Board of a charity.
Successful candidates must also be able to demonstrate:
- An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities, and liabilities of Trusteeship.
- A strategic vision and sound independent judgement.
- Able to think creatively and work effectively as a member of a team and to take decision for the good of CCS.
- A commitment to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
Trustees serve for an initial term of three years and will have the opportunity to be re-appointed for a second and final term (maximum of nine years). Trustee meetings are held between 5-7pm, four times a year in addition to a half day strategy meeting. All reasonable expenses will be covered by the charity.
