Up for closing the education gap and making a huge impact on young lives? So are we!

Trustees

We’re at an exciting point in the charity’s development, setting a new four-year strategy which will guide our mission to grow our presence across the country and deepen our impact in the communities we work in.

We are looking for at least three new trustees to help set the strategic direction to reflect our ambitious goals and position TU within the right networks to support more families. In addition to ensuring good governance, as a Trustee, you will have the opportunity to influence our delivery, operations, strategy and business decisions to help the organisation address challenges and maximise opportunities, so we can continue to excel and create more opportunities for young people to succeed in education and employment. 

Our Trustees can be based anywhere across England, and we welcome applications from people who share our passion and commitment to supporting every child to succeed, alongside skills and experience in any of the following:

  • Experience teaching or working with schools
  • Charity governance or senior leadership
  • Experience working with housing associations
  • Community development and neighborhood investment
  • Management consulting, finance and organisational change

Applications close on Friday 22nd March 2024 at 12:00pm.

We strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups on charity boards, including women, Black, Asian and LGBTQ+ people. We are also eager to hear from individuals with lived experience of educational inequality who offer valuable insights or skills to contribute to our mission.
