Trustee (3 vacancies)
Do you want to help stand up for refugees and vulnerable migrants? This is a crucial time in the development of Asylum Justice. As the right to asylum has increasingly come under attack in the UK, Asylum Justice has grown quickly to meet the demand in our services.
Asylum Justice are recruiting up to three voluntary positions to join their Board of Trustees. The new Trustees will have experience in one or more of the following areas:
- A personal experience of living in the UK as a refugee, asylum seeker, or migrant.
- Professional Human Resources experience.
- Fundraising experience.
- Experience in Asylum & Human Rights law
They are the only organisation in Wales and one of the last remaining in the United Kingdom to provide free specialist immigration advice and representation, up to and including court level, to asylum seekers, refugees, and vulnerable migrants.
That means we are often the last and only place that people can turn to for help when they fear for their lives or the safety of their family in their country of origin.
Whether you’re an experienced trustee, or someone putting yourself forward for the first time, they want to hear from you.
As a New Trustee you will receive:
- Induction training with existing trustees
- Opportunities to make strategic decisions & develop new skills
- The chance to help a growing organisation providing front-line support.
The expected time commitment is six Trustee meeting per year (held on Zoom on Thursdays 5.30 – 7pm) and some ad hoc committee work. This is primarily a remote role, although for those able to travel to Wales there will be social opportunities to meet.
How to Apply
The closing date for applications is 5pm, Thursday 29th February, 2024.
Interviews will begin the week starting 4th March (subject to confirmation).
