General Summary

After four years of fantastic achievements & growth, we’ve realised it’s time to get ready for the future. Toward the end of 2022, our company created a vision for how Blossom LGBT CIC will look within the next 5 years, this starts with a fresh executive director team & rebrand.

Each of our directors focuses on a particular area of the organisation.

You’ll take over the management of the groups, events, and activities relevant to your role. This will require you to be onsite at venues across Surrey (Currently Woking & Guildford) or find appropriate cover when you’re unavailable.

We’re looking for talented individuals to join us “at the top of the tree” to shape and conduct key areas of our organisation. We’ll work collaboratively to introduce our new structures, improve our internal processes, and start creating paid opportunities for those involved in our organisation. Whilst you’ll work collaboratively with our managing director to take care of the overarching organisational direction, you’ll have control over your designated area with the ambition to insert a fresh point of view, create opportunity, and reach a wider audience.

It’s important to identify you’ll be listed as an official director on companies house so it’s imperative that you understand the implications of this and are prepared for the responsibility.

Role Specific Summary

In 2022 our Director team planned and executed 10 events including a queer art exhibition, a queer safe space at a music festival, and even take over day in a local school. We have loved doing these but as the scope of our managing director role creeps up, we’ve recognised the need for building a team who are dedicated to the creation and hosting of these events.

You’ll be responsible for establishing this department and finding its directon within the company.
