Thank you for your interest in joining our Board of Trustees. Please find below the details of current opportunities:-
This is a wonderful opportunity to make a significant difference to the lives of lone refugee youth. It is a challenging but highly fulfilling role.
The Separated Child Foundation is poised for growth at an exciting stage of its development and we’re keen to recruit more Trustees to strengthen and broaden our skills and understanding.
We’re committed to creating a diverse Board of Trustees that truly reflects the multi-ethnic nature of our society, including the children and young people that we support. We particularly welcome applications from people who have the lived experience of a separated child or a refugee in another situation, or else have been working for organisations that support refugees, and from people in under-represented communities.
We invite you to apply for the position of Trustee, which is a place in a lively, committed and forward-looking team.
Some basic information:
- Our Board includes a Chair, a Deputy Chair and an Honorary Treasurer. We also have a Minuting Secretary. There are currently no vacancies for Ordinary Trustees but there are three vacancies for Co-opted Trustees. Co-option is for one year at a time and can be renewed by mutual agreement. New Trustees can be formally appointed soon after the recruitment process is complete.
- Board meetings take place on Zoom in the early evening on a weekday, six times a year.
- Committees meet between Board meetings and are a significant way of stimulating and extending our work. There are three committees: Management, Development and Influencing. All Trustees are encouraged to join a Committee.
- The role of Trustee is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although expenses (including for travel) may be claimed.
