The role

It is the mission of Dorset Community Action (DCA) to encourage and support communities in Dorset to improve people’s lives, particularly those most disadvantaged. DCA is independent, providing information, advice, networking and support services to community and voluntary organisations of all shapes and sizes.

We are looking for people with a range of skills and knowledge, who reflect the diversity of the groups and communities we serve.  We are especially keen to involve people with the skills and experience listed below:-

  • charity trusteeship;
  • fund raising;
  • corporate relationships;
  • sales;
  • media/PR.

While a commitment to attend Board meetings around six times per year is important, so too is a willingness to get to know, and provide guidance and support for the operational team.

In return, we can offer you the opportunity to work with a passionate and committed staff team, who are supporting community organisations across Dorset to realise their aspirations.
