Seeking new Board Members to help transform our city

In 2021, Hereford was successful in attracting a £22.4 million investment from the Government’s Towns Fund. This money will support the development of 15 ambitious and innovative Hereford-city based projects, which together aim to make Hereford a greener, fairer city that offers fantastic opportunities and quality of life for people of all ages.

Following outline approval, the projects each had to submit a full business plan for scrutiny.  We were delighted that in 2022 Government greenlit the #StrongerHereford projects to proceed.

The projects are now at different stages of delivery and we are looking to strengthen our Board with relevant skills and experience.  In particular, we are seeking new members who have significant commercial experience whilst experience of ambitious project delivery would also be advantage.

 This is an unpaid role, but you will join a dynamic team of people from different backgrounds and play a part in shaping the future of our city.   All Board members are expected to be ambassadors for the city and the Board seeks to represent the diversity of communities we seek to serve. 

For an informal chat about the opportunity email chair of the Board, Abigail Appleton or Board members recruitment task and finish groups members Ruth Parry or Paul Stevens.

Closing date for applications is Monday 20 March 2023. 

Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an informal interview.
