Could you be our new Chair of Trustees?
We are looking for a new Chair of Trustees with the passion and drive to move our charity forward in a period of growth and development.
Our current chair Sam Palmer is stepping down in 2024, after 8 great years supporting GMYN and being an ambassador of our work. We are now looking to find a new Chair that will continue to lead the trustee board.
Sam Palmer, our current Chair, says: “GMYN is more than a charity – we are dedicated to empowering young people by offering unwavering support and resources for them to succeed, even in the face of the most negative challenges.
“Our commitment to fostering growth, resilience and a profound sense of purpose creates a nurturing environment at the heart of our mission.
“If you are a visionary leader with a passion for youth empowerment, we invite you to consider this exceptional opportunity to leave a lasting impact on the lives of young people in Greater Manchester. Join us in our mission to ensure that #YoungPeopleCan.”
Our key focus is supporting young people who face particular challenges, including: cared-for young people and care leavers, disabled and neurodiverse young people, unaccompanied asylum seeking children (UASC)/new arrivals, young people with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, and young people who are not ready for work.
Alex Fairweather, CEO of GMYN, says: “You will get a chance to work alongside me to expand the charity’s work and impact further and help develop and launch our new three year strategy next year.
“This is an amazing opportunity for the right person, and I can certainty vouch for GMYN being a fantastic charity for trustees to become involved in. As our new Chair you can really make a huge difference and help lead the Trustees as we continue to develop.”
Experience of youth work is not required to be a GMYN Chair/Trustee. Ideally, we are looking for someone with experience of being a trustee and/or has a senior role with transferable skills.
Deadline to apply is 29th January, interviews with Trustees and some of the young beneficiaries will take place in person at our office in February.
