Non-Executive Directors – Brighter Futures for Children
Brighter Futures for Children (BFfC) is a not-for-profit company established in 2018 to deliver children’s services in Reading. We are wholly-owned by, but independent of, Reading Borough Council.
About the role
Our vision is to unlock all the resources we can in Reading to help every child have a happy, healthy and successful life. We believe that we are most likely to succeed if our staff, children and the young people we work with are involved and engaged in everything we do.
We have made significant headway in a short space of time and in 10 short months, we have moved children’s services from an ‘Inadequate’ Ofsted rating to ‘Requires Improvement’ (published Oct 29, 2019). There is real determination at all levels to make Brighter Futures for Children a success – and to improve the lives of children and young people in Reading.
This is a unique opportunity to join our Board and make a real difference by contributing to company’s strategic direction. We are looking for experienced individuals with considerable skills at Board level. We are particularly interested in hearing from professionals with strong commercial/business skills, commissioning or education experience. In addition, we are keen to encourage professionals with local connections. If you have a strong understanding of effective governance, are a strategic thinker and a competent and collegiate decision-maker then we would like to hear from you.
