Job Description

Young Women's Trust is looking for an Honorary Treasurer who will also be a full member of the Board of trustees and Chair the FInance & General Purposes Committee.

Young Women’s Trust is the only organisation that focuses solely on supporting and representing women aged 18-30, in England and Wales, who are unemployed or struggling to live on low pay. We offer free employment coaching and personalised advice on job applications to support young women into work and out of poverty and we conduct research and run campaigns to give young women fair opportunities to access, sustain and progress in work.           

We have ambitious plans to scale up our work to reach more disadvantaged young women and to extend the influence and impact of our research and campaigns, which makes this an exciting time to join the charity, and help us support more women achieve their own ambitions.

We already have a talented group of trustees, including 2 young women from our beneficiary group, but are seeking to diversify the Board even further. We encourage applications from all sections of the community. Most Board and Committee meetings are held in central London in our wheelchair accessible offices near Angel tube station.

The Board meets at least 4 times a year (usually between 4pm and 7pm) plus one Board Away Day. The Finance and General Purposes Committee also meets around 4 times a year usually during working hours.

The appointment is for a three-year term, plus a second three-year term if appointed which may be extended for a further year, after which the Treasurer is expected to step down.

We are also looking for new Board members with financial skills or investment knowledge who are willing to be members of the Finance & General Purposes Committee.
