BeOnBoard is recruiting for a new team member to join it as it continues in its mission to deliver inclusive leadership.
We are committed to changing the face of Boards in Bristol and beyond. We want to increase our team over the next year to enable us to effect change more quickly, and by joining us now you can have an integral part in how we shape the organisation.
In our first year we have worked with organisations across Bristol, including UWE, Business West, NatWest and others. We need you to join us to increase the number of partnerships we have and encourage businesses to use BeOnBoard to help them engage with communities across Bristol.
