What we are looking for
Sculpt is a UK-based charity providing research, training and work-experience opportunities that empower young people to shape their own futures and those of their communities.
We work directly with young people, employers and professionals who support young people. All our work is guided by young people themselves and based on carefully researched evidence. We are guided by our Youth Advisory Board, a group of six young people aged between 15 – 30 who work closely with the Chief Executive and have a rotating seat on the Board of Trustees.
We are recruiting for a new Chair of Trustees to lead the Board and ensure that the charity has a clear vision, mission and strategic direction to achieve its full potential. We are looking for someone with the skills and experience to lead on creating networking opportunities and potential partnerships with other organisations, corporates and individuals and to widen our reach.
Ideally you will have previous experience of being a Chair of a Trustee Board, strong networking capabilities that can be utilised for the benefit of the organisation and knowledge and experience of best practice and good governance relevant to charities and the Charity Commission.
We are particularly interested in hearing from people from diverse backgrounds, and welcome individuals who want to apply their knowledge and also learn from our young people, staff and fellow Board members. A full induction and training on the work of Sculpt will be provided.
What difference will you make?
Your involvement will help young people shape their future by helping us increase our visibility across a wider audience and helping us become financially and organisationally sustainable for the future. You will be joining an active Board and your experience will significantly help the organisation to reach their goals. You will pay a pivotal role in shaping the strategic
direction and future development of this successful charity who aim to make a real difference to young people and their communities.
