Call for Board Member Nominations

Significant Seams invites nominations for new members of its Board of Directors.

Significant Seams is an innovative and vibrant social enterprise – it won London Borough of Waltham Forest Social Enterprise of the Year 2014 in the annual small business competition, and is currently delivering the Borough’s largest art commission and making a step change in the operations and turnover of its retail arm with support from a national scheme. Throughout the year it provides support to a range of residents from Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Newham – particularly though its Supportive Social Stitching Programme and its Sew & Tell ESL English as Second Language Programme. Volunteers are integral to the running of the organisation – and the organisation’s volunteering scheme is distinctive in its ambitions for emotional and social support of volunteers as well as skill development and organisational benefits.

As the organisation continues to grow, it seeks new members to join its committed leadership. New Board members would bring skills and experience to help this community business and social support organisation succeed through effective governance, timely introductions, and strategic planning. The Chair of the Board would be particularly keen to receive nominations of people with skills or experience in the following areas:

  • Retail Development
  • Wholesale Distribution
  • Fundraising
  • Arts Engagement
  • Community Development
  • Governance
  • Business Development
  • Finance

Nominations will be gratefully considered by the Board. Nominees should be personally or professionally known to the nominator. Self nominations are welcome. A short list will be assembled and full applications, including CV and personal statement, invited from it.

The Board Nominations Form should be completed and emailed to david@socialspider.com or posted to:
