    Prisoners' Education Trust

Prisoners' Education Trust (PET) is recruiting new trustees, including one trustee to join the Board now with the expectation of becoming PET’s next Treasurer from 2023.

PET is the UK’s leading prison education charity. Working with prisons across England and Wales, we fund courses in levels and subjects that are otherwise unavailable and champion the life-changing power of education. We help around 1,500 people each year to start their studies, equipping them with  the skills and qualifications to build brighter futures.

This is a pivotal time for PET. As we emerge from the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, we are on the cusp of launching a new five-year organisational strategy that will look to build on the progress that we have made in recent years and ensure that PET is fit for the future.

At this crucial time for the organisation, we are looking for candidates who can demonstrate that they will bring strategic vision, different perspectives, energy and fresh thinking to the Board of Trustees.

As part of this recruitment, we are looking for a trustee to join the Board now with the expectation of becoming PET’s next Treasurer from 2023.

Applicants for this role will offer an understanding of charity finance and risk-management, either gained through a suitable financial qualification or from direct experience working with or for a charity.

If you want to help steer PET through the next phase of our development, and if you can offer us the dedication and commitment that we’re looking for, then we hope you will consider applying to join us.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 29 October 2021.
