Interested in being an MRC board member?

We are in the process of re-shaping our business model in light of changes in the public sector and to meet the new challenges of attracting investment in our work.

With this in mind, the Board of Trustees has decided to seek new Board members to join the current team of 6. The current Board have, between them, a wide range of skills and experience and a wealth of local knowledge. However, we have a lot to do over the next 12 months and are aware of some skills gaps that we should like to fill.

If you share our passion and would like to play an active part in making a difference and if you feel you have the skills we are looking for, then we should like to hear from you.

Sue Hughes

I am very pleased to be able to use the skills and knowledge I have gained working in Further Education over 36 years in different roles including, technician, teacher, section manager, director, external verifier and Ofsted additional inspector.

Now retired but still very active through volunteering, currently in a local Primary school and running a monthly disco and social evening for adults with learning difficulties and or disabilities.

The skills I can offer as a trustee include, management change, extensive knowledge of safeguarding, mentoring and support for staff, administration and approaches and strategies for quality management.

I believe working with the staff and fellow trustees I am able to contribute to the achievement of MRC’s ambition to support the local community.
