Recruitment of New Trustees

Working Families is seeking qualified candidates to join our Board of Trustees to help working parents and carers – and their employers – find a better balance between responsibilities at home and work. The Charity has recently undergone a period of significant change and this is an exciting time to join Working Families and contribute to its future.

What will you be doing?

  • Providing expert advice, challenge and support to the Senior Management Team
  • Expected to attend 6 Board Meetings a year and regular meetings of the sub-committee to which you are assigned plus one strategy away day each year
  • Supporting Working Families’ events throughout the year
  • Directing the overall management of the Charity and providing strategic guidance and governance

What are we looking for?

We are looking for Trustees to join the Board who can demonstrate some or all of the following:

  • Proven track record in a board/senior leadership role in the private and/or public sector.
  • A passion for supporting and advocating for working parents and carers, especially those who are disadvantaged.
  • Experience or involvement with a board or committees in a governance role is desirable
  • Experience of strategic business planning, income generation and change management
  • Demonstrable empathy with the causes we support at Working Families, perhaps with lived experience of the issues our beneficiaries face

We are particularly interested to hear from candidates with experience of marketing, business development and income generation including fundraising. We are also looking for a Trustee with a financial/accountancy background who has the skills to take over the Treasurer role in the future.

What difference will you make?

As a member of our Board of Trustees, you will shape our work with parents, carers, employers, and lawmakers in achieving a society where everyone can fully meet their work and caring responsibilities. Your work as a trustee will positively impact the working lives of the UK’s 13 million working parents and carers.
