Chair of Board of Trustees – The Pankhurst Trust

Location: Manchester

Date Posted: 16/02/2021

Closing Date: 26/03/2021

Job description

 

“We woman suffragists have a great mission – the greatest mission the world has ever known. It is to free half the human race, and through that freedom to save the rest.”
— Emmeline Pankhurst

About us:

The Pankhurst Trust brings together Manchester Women’s Aid and the Pankhurst Centre. We work together to ensure the story of the women who won the vote continues to inspire us all to challenge gender inequality, and to ensure that those suffering from domestic violence and abuse get the confidential help they need.

The Pankhurst Trust (Incorporating Manchester Women’s Aid) is a diverse organisation with c31% of our staff coming from BAME and c12% from LGBT communities. We span the generations with c11% of staff being aged 18-24 and c25% aged 55-64. 11% of staff identify as having a disability.

Our staff, volunteers and service users have recently taken time to reflect on who we are and what we do when we are at our best. This reflection showed that we can proudly claim to be:

Courageous by challenging inequality, stepping forward and making change

Affirming by supporting and inspiring, paying attention to discover what matters

Generous by sharing our skills, creating energetic positive links, and thriving together

Rooted by being secure in our communities, participating and nurturing a sense of belonging

About this voluntary role:

PTMWA are looking for a new Chair of the Board of Trustees, someone who wants to help us to continue the vital work we do for women and girls, someone who can inspire action and someone who can help us carry forward the ambitious plans we have for the Trust. Our new Chair will join us at both a very challenging and an exciting time. This appointment follows a year during which we’ve seen colleagues and volunteers for Manchester Women’s Aid rise up to meet significant increases in demand for domestic abuse services whilst managing the enormous difficulties and complexities created by Covid-19. It comes at a time when the need for the women’s services we provide has never been greater and when our plans for the reopening of the Pankhurst Centre and the revealing of our new permanent exhibition, At Home with the Pankhurst Family; will see us take a huge step towards our vision of achieving the restoration and conservation of Emmeline Pankhurst’s former home.

About you:

The successful candidate will be a feminist who shares the values of the Trust’s mission, aims and objectives.  A leader with strong interpersonal skills, your experience or appreciation of the role of Trustee or NED will enable you to ensure all parties are focused on the PTMWA strategic aims, cultural development and financial sustainability.  You will have an understanding of the legal duties of a trustees and your personal and political integrity will support you in advocating on behalf the Trust.

This voluntary opportunity has been assessed and confirmed as open to women only under the Equality Act 2010, schedule 9, part 1
