Adviza is looking to recruit additional young trustees for the Adviza and Connexions Buckinghamshire Boards. These roles are to represent the views of young people in the Thames Valley and Buckinghamshire. In general, discussions at these Board meetings centre on the strategic direction of the organisation, reviewing the process of contracts with local authorities and schools. There are also other important items such as the structure of the organisation, fundraising progress/activity, budgets, business plans, marketing, governance, finance and accounts.

Currently, both Boards are made up of young people, voluntary sector Chief Executives, representatives from the local authorities in which we work, representatives from education, our own staff and management trustees as well as our Chief Executive, a number of co-opted trustees and are chaired by an Independent Chairpersons.

The Adviza Board meetings are held at the Support Centre in Bracknell. Dates are set at the beginning of the year and are normally in March, June and November. We are looking for young people aged 16-24 and ideally resident within the Thames Valley.

The Board for Connexions Buckinghamshire meets three times a year at the Connexions Centre in High Wycombe. Meetings are usually in February, June and October with dates set at the beginning of the year. The ideal candidate will be aged 16-19 and resident or educated in Buckinghamshire.
