We are seeking a chief officer committed to working on a locality basis with a strong track record in community capacity building and leading an organisation. Bavs plays a key strategic role in local relationships and community planning working alongside communities, statutory partners and other agencies. Our purpose is to support Berwickshire’s communities to build their skills, confidence, knowledge and experience to take their ideas forward. As we prepare to celebrate our 50th year, we are looking for a chief officer to take us back to our roots as an organisation made and shaped by local community activists. We are seeing a chief executive with a track record making an impact for communities, with excellent communication, organisation and business skills.
