Current vacancies from partners or members of London Funders

London Funders - Trustees

Location: London
Salary: Voluntary
Closing Date: 2nd December
Application Link: Here

At this year’s AGM (9 December) we will be sadly saying goodbye to three of our long-serving Trustees who reach the end of their third term of three years – Bharat Mehta from Trust for London, Erik Mesel from John Lyon’s Charity, and Monica Needs from the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham.  We’ve benefited hugely from their expertise, ideas and support over the last nine years, and thank them for their service.  Their departures leave seats on our Board that we’ll be seeking to fill at the AGM – not just as Trustees, but also because Monica has served as one of our Vice Chairs, and Erik as our Treasurer, so we also need people who are interested in taking on those extra responsibilities too.
If you’re interested in becoming a Trustee we can arrange a call with existing members of the Board, can invite you to observe one of our Board meetings (the next one is on 12 November), or send you any extra information that would be helpful – just get in touch with James to discuss.  More information about the role is in our summary sheet here.

Sir John Cass's Foundation - Governor 

Location: London
Salary: Voluntary
Closing Date: 8th December
Application Link: Here

Sir John Cass’s Foundation is one of London’s oldest and largest education charities. Founded in 1748, it supports education for young people under the age of 25 from London through its grant programmes for individuals, schools and organisations. The Foundation provides in excess of £4.3 million of educationally linked grants and benefits per year derived from an asset base and investment portfolio of circa £180 million.
The Foundation is now at a point of reflection as we look to change out name. It is clear to us that while firmly committed to combating racism, we failed to consider whether our own name and history compounded the problem. We have also continued to celebrate Sir John Cass without explaining or acknowledging his connection to slavery and human exploitation, or the hurt and anger this has caused amongst our beneficiaries and our community. It is important to us that our new name reflects our beliefs and charitable work and will remain relevant through the next 300 years. Our Trustees, partners, and stakeholders are currently consulting on the name and we will then undertake the legal applications to officially change our name as a charity.
The Foundation is now seeking outstanding candidates to join the Board at this critical point in our history. We are open minded about the specific skills and experience this person will bring but would welcome applications from those who have lived experience or an understanding of our beneficiaries and what they experience. In order to increase the diversity of our board to reflect the community we serve the Foundation would particularly welcome applications from candidates from Black, Asian or ethnic minority backgrounds.
