First Steps is a grassroots charity reversing the cycles of poverty through the provision of quality childcare and education and integrated family services. We imagine a world where all children are free to be themselves and we can live lives to the full.

Over the last 32 years, we have helped create transformative change in the lives of children under five and their families. We are looking to build the First Steps board of trustees; trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run.

Our current Treasurer is looking to move on, we are looking for a financial leader, ideally with insights into charity governance and finance, (there are opportunities for training), to shadow the role of Treasurer, and take over.

We are also looking to fill other trustee roles, people who are interested in joining a collaborative and robust board, who are driven by our values and mission, including our unrelenting focus on improving outcomes for children, particularly those with special educational needs, and their families.

We are looking for people with knowledge and experience of charity law, building management, and HR management as well as people who have experience of parenting in the communities where First Steps works, Twerton, Moorlands and / or experience of parenting a child with special educational needs.

As a First Steps trustee, you would be joining a talented board and supporting an outstanding Senior Leadership Team. We take great pride in the professional and personal experiences of the whole team, and we actively seek out representation from across our community. Our diversity is our strength and helps us as we deliver our Theory of Change outcomes. We are looking to represent the community that we work within and the families who use our services and are particularly keen to hear from people from minority groups.
