Job Description

We are seeking a Trustee and Chair of our Finance Committee, who will play a key and central role on the Board scrutinising and supporting the Executive on the charity’s finances. For this role, a qualified finance professional, with skills and experience in accountancy, audit and strategic financial management will be essential with the right level of motivation and commitment to join the Board.

Equally important, the successful candidate must embody and act in accordance with Right to Succeed's values and should be able to demonstrate understanding of the challenges facing children, young people and communities that Right to Succeed aims to overcome.

Right to Succeed is all about bringing the community together to transform outcomes for children. Why? Because we believe every child deserves the right to succeed, no matter where they live. 

We work in two ways: to overcome a major educational issue - across a whole district or local authority; or to drive focused, but whole system improvement in a smaller place, bringing together education, services, families and communities to transform children’s outcomes from cradle to career.

It is complex work, but we are learning quickly how best to deliver this and are fortunate to have an incredible team that embodies our values of humility, curiosity, integrity, commitment and collaboration. We are far from the finished article, but we pride ourselves on the speed at which we are learning and improving our work.

The role of trustee is unpaid. Location of the post holder is not important, as Board and Committee meetings are mainly held by video conference - ability to travel to visit our programmes (mostly based in the North West currently) is important.
