The library used to be called Blackburn with Darwen Sling Library but the name recently changed to West Pennine Slings and there is going to be another big change:
Katrina and Iain are hoping the library will become a community interest company in the next few months. This won’t affect the day to day running of the library and the activities already provided but it will make the library an official non-profit community project and hopefully open up funding opportunities to expand the library faster.
They are looking for another director of the company – could you be this person?
Ideally they are looking for someone with a background in accounting or marketing as these are two areas that are needed most. The role would be essentially voluntary but there may be opportunities to be paid for any professional work undertaken (e.g. for completing the yearly tax return if you are an accountant) in the future depending on the financial situation of the company.
