About Bramber Bakehouse

Bramber Bakehouse works alongside victims of domestic abuse, survivors of human trafficking, asylum seekers and refugees to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disadvantage.

Our trauma-informed programme is a direct response to the situation women face as a result of their past experiences. Learning together in the kitchen fosters community, increases self-esteem, improves mental health and develops trust.

Combine this with our tailored wellbeing sessions, transferable life skills lessons and future-proof support, it’s a recipe for success.

We are seeking Trustees with a variety of skills to join our Board.


What will you be doing?

Trustees are given a full induction, receive training opportunities and can claim reasonable expenses to enable them to carry out their duties. 

Main Tasks 

  • Reflect the organisation’s vision and values, strategy and policies
  • Work closely with the board to formulate and review the strategic aims of the organisation
  • Ensure the policy and practices of the organisation are in keeping with its aims 
  • Ensure that the organisation functions within the legal and financial requirements of a charity and company limited by guarantee
  • Use resources effectively and efficiently
  • Ensure best practice is developed and applied
  • Monitor and evaluate the performance of the organisation
  • Take part in training sessions
  • Contribute specific skills, interests and contacts
  • Fulfil other duties as required from time to time by the Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees meet six times a year: four early-evening meetings and two weekend away-days, in Eastbourne or Brighton.


What are we looking for?

  • Sector knowledge - experience in the charity or social enterprise sector, knowledge of purpose driven organisations and trauma informed practice
  • Safeguarding - experience of child and adult safeguarding from a practitioner or governance perspective
  • Fundraising - experience in the charity sector, at a senior level
  • Business Development - experience of developing social enterprise, trading; property management
  • Equity, Diversity & Inclusion - experience of developing ED&I strategies and frameworks

We aim to achieve equity, diversity and inclusion at every level of our workforce. As a result, we're prioritising applicants with lived experience of gender-based violence, displacement, exploitation or racism. We believe organisational diversity matters and we will be more accountable and better able to assess the needs of the women we support if we have a good range of perspectives within our team.


What difference will you make?

We are a charity that works alongside women who've experienced gender-based violence, exploitation and/or displacement. Through the power of baking, women are able to lead safe, purposeful, independent lives.


Time Commitment and Location

The Board of Trustees meet six times a year: four early-evening meetings and two weekend away-days, in Eastbourne or Brighton.

We have a clear strategy, an expanding staff team and ambitious plans for growth. None of this would be possible without the input and support of a skilled and engaged Board of Trustees.

This role is mainly home-based.
