Children In Need Committee Vacancies March 27, 2009

Posted by liverpoolchamber in Media.

Children_in_need We have been asked by the BBC to circulate the following info regarding Children In Need Committee vacancies:

BBC Children in Need is seeking to recruit individuals with extensive and demonstrable experience of improving outcomes for children and young people to provide independent, objective contributions to its Northern Regional Committee which is responsible for distributing around £8m annually to organisations delivering services for children and young people on a not for profit basis.

The Northern Regional Committee is the key mechanism for advising the Trustees on which organisations should be funded by BBC Children in Need in the North of England, an area which covers Yorkshire & Humber, North Lincolnshire, the North East, the North West and Cumbria.

This is an opportunity to ensure that BBC Children in Need funds projects which fulfil its mission to positively change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK and that  funds are distributed across the Northern Region in an effective and objective manner.

Candidates should have significant professional experience of providing services which have positively improved the life chances of disadvantaged children and young people, good report writing skills, a good level of IT literacy and the ability to resolve issues through negotiation.  Applicants for the role of Chair or Vice Chair must also have excellent leadership skills and experience of chairing professional and strategic meetings at a senior level.  As we seek to maintain a balance of skills and experience across our Committee we will be actively seeking to select new Committee Members who add value by bringing diversity to the current membership.

The time commitment is anticipated to be up to 6 days in the first 
year for Committee Members rising to 10 in the second and final year.  
Vice Chair will be up to 12 days and the Chair will need to commit up to 14 days per year.  In addition there is time spent reading applications before each meeting.  As Committee meetings take place at BBC venues across the North of England some travel and overnight stays are involved. Any offer of a role on our Committee will be subject to a CRB check.

For further information about the role please contact David Carnaffan on 0191 2441401 david.carnaffan@bbc.co.uk or Elaine James on 0113 2247155 elaine.james@bbc.co.uk.  If you are interested in applying please send a CV and covering letter marked for the attention of Harriet Stranks, BBC Children in Need Regional Manager (North) at our Manchester Office as detailed above.
