TRUSTEE & DEPUTY CHAIR

The New Economics Foundation is a charity which aims to be the most exciting progressive think and action tank in the United Kingdom. Our goal is to build the case for far reaching economic change and to develop policy and practical solutions to drive this change. We believe in an economy that is truly just and sustainable, one that takes power out of the hands of unaccountable elites and enables individuals and their communities democratically to shape their own future.

We are seeking a new trustee to join our board and take on the role of Deputy Chair to assist the Chair, as well as playing a full role as a trustee. Please note that there is no expectation that the Deputy Chair should necessarily become Chair in the future.

We are seeking an exceptional individual who is interested in our work and able to represent NEF publicly. You will have a strong track record in leadership, bring a fresh perspective to the Board’s work, be prepared to challenge the status quo, and assist with the task of securing funding for our ambitious agenda. We are looking for someone with board experience or who has held a senior position, preferably in a charity.  An understanding of organisational development, human resources or employee relations would be an advantage.

We want a diverse board, with a broad representation of ages, background, perspective, gender and ethnicity.

Your primary responsibilities will be to:

  • drive the strategic direction of the organisation
  • raise NEF’s profile whilst safeguarding its values and good name
  • work with fellow trustees and the chief executive to inspire performance
  • ensure that NEF complies with all relevant charity legislation and is financially sustainable

This role is not remunerated, however reasonable expenses will be paid. Trustees must be prepared to meet at NEF’s London offices at least once a quarter, and may be asked to join sub committees or ad hoc working groups as necessary.

If you share our vision to transform the economy so it works for people and the planet then you could be the person we need.

Please contact Jonathan Bell (jonathan.bell@neweconomics.org) to arrange an informal discussion.

The deadline for applications is 15 June 2018.  Discussion and interviews by arrangement.
