The Rural Urban Synthesis Society (RUSS) is seeking a volunteer Secretary to sit on the board of Trustees and support the organisation through an exciting time of growth and development.

RUSS is a Community Land Trust based in south-east London. We are an innovative volunteer-led organisation that has embarked on an exciting journey to build a sustainable community of self-built, permanently affordable homes in Lewisham. Planning permission has been secured and work on site will commence in 2019.

We currently have a board of voluntary Trustees who meet every six weeks, and over 800 members.

We’re keen to maintain a diverse board that is representative of our local community, and welcome applications from any sections of society underrepresented on the board.

The Secretary supports the board in ensuring that meetings, appointments, and the finances of the organisation are run effectively and in accordance with the governing document. The Secretary will be supported in these duties by the Operations Director and (subject to successful appointment) a part-time Administration and Finance Officer.
