VACANCIES AT RECLAIM

Charity Chair and new Trustee (Treasurer) wanted!

We are looking for a new Chair of the Board to join us in June 2022, and as part of our longer-term succession planning are also looking for a new Trustee who can join our board now, and go on to become our Treasurer in 2023 when our current Treasurer’s term of office comes to an end. 

About RECLAIM and the roles:

RECLAIM is a youth leadership and social change organisation. We are a small but bold charity, using our experience and platform to support and amplify the voices of working-class young people.  We exist to create a society in which being from a working-class background no longer presents barriers to achievement, success, or influence.

 

Our long-term goal is to create a Britain where those from working-class backgrounds are proud of – and not held back by – our roots. We want working-class people to be represented in places where decisions are made about their lives and to be recognised for their talent, strength, and diversity. We want to see working-class young people at the heart of this, in a country that ensures that they are seen, heard, and leading change.

We are looking for a new Chair of our board of trustees to lead the governance of the organisation. Currently we have a board of five members, and are looking at growing the board slightly over the next year to ensure young people are better represented at board level.  

We want a Chair who is driven by a lack of working-class voice in public life.  Who is excited and motivated by RECLAIM’s vision and approach and is willing to offer their time, experience, strategic input and guidance to help us develop as an organisation. 

We are also looking for an additional trustee to join our Board, who will be able to take on the role of Treasurer in late 2023 when our current Treasurer will step down. 

This is an exciting time for RECLAIM as we look to grow our ambition and footprint.  As the organisation moves into its next phase of strategic development, the senior leadership team and Board will be working together to develop a clear, compelling strategy to ensure the voices of working-class young people can’t be ignored. 

We are also in the process of recruiting a young person to our Board but we are following a separate process for that recruitment.

Application deadline: Apply by Monday 25th April. For details of how to apply for each role click the Job Role below.
