We’re diversifying our Board: could you be a new Working Chance Trustee?

We're looking for new Trustees

We’re looking for exceptional people to grow our Board of Trustees. Our Board steers the strategic direction of Working Chance as a charity, and holds us accountable to our vision, mission, and values. Keep reading to learn more.

I am delighted to be taking forward our new strategy and am looking for new Trustees to join me on the Board as we extend and improve our services for women. Can you bring experience and skills which will help us to transform the lives of women with convictions?

Lin Hinnigan
Chair of Trustees

As well as growing the size of our Board, we’re deepening our commitment to representation. We believe that by having a diverse group we can collectively make better decisions and better serve our beneficiaries. So, in this round of Trustee recruitment, we want to try to achieve a better balance in the voices on our Board by recruiting people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds and people with lived experience of the criminal justice system to join us.

To reflect this, we don’t ask that you’ve been on a Board before, and full support and guidance will be given should you need it. By joining the Board, you will be joining the organisation at a pivotal time in our history, as we broaden our services to help more women find the path to a happier, more productive life.
