New Board Members will support the Board, CEO and senior team by offering expertise in key areas. The following 5 areas are a summary of the main areas of responsibility of the Board.

  • Culture: to establish a culture for the Board and to promote that culture through the Executive Team and the rest of the organisation.

  • Governance:
    • To oversee & support the performance of the Executive Team in delivering this strategy.
    • To ensure that YFF complies with its legal and regulatory requirements.
    • To act as guardians of YFF’s assets both tangible and intangible, ensuring that they are only used for the mission of the organisation.
  • Critical friends: to build a relationship with the Executive Team that promotes honesty, transparency and accountability.
  • Ambassadors: to act as ambassadors representing the organisation to all stakeholders.

You’ll be willing to make a strategic contribution as a key member of the board and bring a background in one of the following areas; Youth sector funders & providers, access to employer communities, or grassroots youth engagement.

It was great to hear from the UnLtd team about this different model for having impact and also how they structure themselves and operate across the country.
