VACANCIES AT RECLAIM

Charity Chair wanted!

We are looking for a new Chair of the Board to join us! The deadline for applications is October 16th 2022 however applicants may be interviewed before this date so early applications are advised.

About RECLAIM and the role:

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. 

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.
