by West Smethwick Enterprise

As a Trustee of West Smethwick Enterprise (Registered Charity no. 1176750), you would become part of an organisation that has grown from strength to strength, particularly over the past 10 years, and now works with over 300 families each year.

We are keen to welcome new Trustees willing to truly work as part of a team to oversee and support the future development of West Smethwick Enterprise (WSE), an independent charity, supporting young children and their families. We feel that individuals who would approach this vital work with professionalism, integrity and openness, would be best suited to leading our charity into the future.

We are seeking individuals with relevant and varied life experiences, as well as skills and professional experience within any of the following areas: Business Development, Human Resources, Legal, Governance, IT, Income Generation, Marketing/Communications, Early Years and Education.

The invaluable work of our Trustees truly enables us to continue to make a difference to the lives of children, by providing strong leadership and ensuring that our organisation is in the best position to fulfil our vision by working on our long-term strategy.
