The Centre for Youth Impact

Chair of the Trustees

Package: Voluntary non-remunerated position
Location: Europe - London, UK
Deadline: 15 March 2019

The Centre for Youth Impact is a small London-based charity that works collaboratively with youth sector organisations across the UK. It exists to lead a step change towards more meaningful approaches to evaluation and impact assessment across the field of youth work and provision for young people.

The current Chair of the Centre's Trustees, Thomas Lawson, is stepping down in March this year. The Trustees wish to appoint a new Chair to replace him. This is an exciting opportunity to lead an impressive and capable Board. The new Chair will help the Centre to consolidate everything it has learned over its first five years and propel it towards a thriving future in which it helps organisations across the youth sector to get even better at what they do, by building their capacity to learn, listen and improve.

We are seeking a credible and influential individual with belief in and passion for the Centre’s mission and purpose. The successful candidate will have excellent chairing skills, and practical experience of engaging with strategy and leadership, and of helping to develop and grow an organisation towards high performance. Prior experience as a charity Trustee is desirable but not essential.

The overall time commitment for the Chair is expected to be around one to one and a half days per month. The position is voluntary and unremunerated.

The deadline for receipt of applications is midday on Friday, 15 March 2019.

The Centre for Youth Impact is seeking greater diversity on its Board. The Trustees welcome applications regardless of sex, gender, race, age, sexuality, belief or disability, and are particularly keen to receive applications from people with a Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) background.
