This organisation is looking for individuals with a passion for improving children’s outcomes and want to use their skills and expertise or lived experiences to strengthen their Trustee Board.
A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join the Board of Trustees at this charity at an exciting time as they continue to grow their reach nationally.
Half-day per month commitment
The Board of Trustees meets four times a year, usually at the central office in Stratford, London.
They are an innovative charity committed to breaking down the barriers that prevent disadvantaged children from thriving in education, by tackling the underlying issues affecting a child’s learning. They work with families, schools, local services, and corporate partners to break intergenerational cycles of poverty and make a real, positive difference to vulnerable children across the UK.
They are looking to welcome new trustees to their talented team and strengthen their innovative organisation at governance level. They are seeking dynamic, engaged individuals who demonstrate leadership abilities but above all are passionate about seeing children reach their full potential. They are ambitious about expanding the national reach and want new trustees on board who are committed to improving children’s life chances.
They're looking to strengthen the board with a range of skills and experience including:
- Lived experiences – They are looking for candidates who have similar lived experiences to their beneficiaries. They will bring shared experience and empathy to support the charity to ensure their services offer practical support to those facing similar challenges. They will also support the charity to improve co-production across everything they do, involving their beneficiaries in the development and implementation of all their services.
- Safeguarding – extensive experience and expertise at a senior and strategic level. They are looking for candidates who would be willing to progress to the role of Safeguarding Lead trustee in due course.
- Financial – extensive experience and expertise (experience in the voluntary sector would be advantageous). They are looking for candidates who would consider progressing to role of Chair of the Finance committee in due course
The organisation values equality and diversity. Their staff and the people supported by them are from very diverse communities and they want their Board to reflect this. As they expand to new communities across the UK, they are also keen to include regional diversity on the Board.
You can expect a strong induction and there is a buddy system in place for new trustees to support them in their role.
