Trustee Positions

We are currently recruiting 3 volunteers with expertise in Governance, Fundraising and International Project Management (Lebanon), to join the Board of Trustees

Application deadline: 5pm on Friday 23rd June 2017
Interviews: Saturday 15 July 2017

This is a great opportunity to join a small but growing charitable organisation. As a result of trustee retirement and restructuring, and recruitment of a new Director, we are now looking to expand the trustee board. While trustees will focus on specific areas of Governance, Fundraising or International Project Management, there will also be extensive opportunities to help shape the direction of the organisation as it moves into a new phase of development. We are looking for trustees with:

– Willingness to commit time and energy to this voluntary role, with a can-do attitude and the ability to work creatively with limited resources.

– Commitment to the mission, vision and ambition of Young Roots

– Availability to attend trustee board meetings to discuss projects and development of the charity.

How to apply
Please submit your CV and a short covering email (300 words) explaining your motivation in applying to secretary@youngroots.org.uk. The deadline for applications is 23 June at 5pm and we will be holding informal interviews on 15th July. More information about the roles can be downloaded here.

Internships

We are recruiting 4 interns to join our team on a 6-month, part time basis
Interns are an invaluable part of our small team and will have the opportunity to get experience of direct work with young refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants. The ability to speak a refugee community language(s) is highly desirable. The positions are unpaid, but lunch and travel expenses within Greater London are covered. All interns will need to provide 2 references, undergo a Young Roots DBS check and attend Young Roots safeguarding training.

If you are interested in applying, please read the role description under the relevant role below and complete the application form specifying which role(s) you would like to be considered for. The application form can be downloaded here.
