This role will be suitable for someone:

  • Passionate about inclusion
  • Can communicate in a way that is simple and engaging
  • Good at summarising and gathering key points from a range of information sources
  • Curious about the movement and learning how charities can better serve their mission (we don’t expect you to know it all already!)
  • Comfortable using Microsoft word and (basic) Excel
  • Who takes initiative and can work independently
  • Can commit to the whole 6 months
  • Who has at least 2 years of experience in a workplace environment either in a paid or unpaid capacity

Key responsibilities:

  • Collating, sorting and summarising resources
  • Lead on engagement for our digital network & social media
  • Working with the Movement Manager to create online training for organisations looking to recruit young trustees

  • Support the Young Trustee team with scheduling meetings and events
  • Communicate (online) their journey of learning about trusteeship
  • Support with other administrative tasks

We are particularly keen on applicants who:

  • Have experience communicating key points in a way that is engaging and informative. Example of kinds of experience that would be valuable: Youtube channel, public speaking, blogs, facilitating workshops, etc.
  • Has volunteered with a charity (in any capacity)
  • Has not been a charity trustee:
    • Trustee boards should be reflective of the community and therefore we believe you don’t need 20 years of experience to be a good board member. We are looking for someone who has no experience of governance to lead on this project.
    • If you don’t know what being a Trustee is or what governance means – that is absolutely fine! Our mission is centred around doing things differently, and we need someone who has a fresh perspective to help us do this!

  • Treat internal and external contacts with dignity and respect and uphold the company’s equality of opportunity and dignity at work policies
