We're looking for a treasurer and new trustees

Do you share our vision of a society in which no woman is held back by a conviction?

We're Working Chance. We help women with convictions to develop the confidence, skills and self-belief they need to overcome any barriers to their employment, find jobs and build careers. If you believe in the power and potential of women, keep reading.

Without Working Chance I would still be hiding away after my prison sentence.

We're looking for trustees to help set and oversee the strategic direction of our charity. We are a small but ambitious organisation, and our trustees play a vital role in helping us bring about our vision of a society in which no woman is held back by a conviction.

Who we're looking for

At present we have specific skills gaps on our Board and so we are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have professional fundraising experience and/or professional experience of working in the criminal justice system.

We're also looking for a finance professional to be our Treasurer: to provide scrutiny and oversight of our finances.

We’re passionate about ensuring that there’s a strong mix on our Board of Trustees of people with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and skills. We believe that by having a diverse group of people we can collectively make better decisions and better serve our beneficiaries. We are particularly keen to hear from people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.
