Trustees (Marketing, Treasurer and Fundraising) for Greater Manchester Immigration Aid

Location: Manchester

Date Posted: 20/12/2019

Closing Date: 16/03/2019

Job description

Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit (GMIAU) exists to advise, support, represent and campaign with people subject to immigration control.

Our aim is to ensure access to justice for survivors of torture, trafficking, human rights abuse and conflict as well as divided families and other who are in need and affected by immigration controls.

This is an opportunity to join the board of an important regional charity and make a vital contribution to our work.

What will you be doing?

Main purpose of the trustee role

  • Fiduciary responsibility, holding the organisation in trust and ensuring public confidence.
  • Overall responsibility for the organisation’s strategic direction.
  • Ensure that the organisation meets its legal duties, remains solvent and is well run.
  • Ensure the organisation delivers its vision, mission and values.
  • To provide leadership.

What are we looking for?

We want people who believe in what we are doing, who are committed to social justice more generally, and can help us to do it better. Some experience of the challenges faced by non-profit organisations would be helpful but is not essential.  More important is your commitment to ensuring the rights of people seeking asylum are protected.

We are particularly looking for people who have experience in one or more of the following:

  • Organisation management and development
  • Finance
  • Property/estate management
  • Fundraising
  • Communications and marketing
  • Legal
  • Immigration law

Time Commitment

Trustees are expected to attend all the meetings of the Board, held every 6-8 weeks, usually at 4.30 or 5pm on a Monday or Tuesday.

What difference will you make?

We are a strong and resilient organisation that has withstood the challenges of the last few years. We are looking for new trustees to strengthen our board and work with us through the next stages of our strategic plan.

What’s in it for the volunteer?

This is an opportunity to be part of an important regional charity that is making a significant difference to the lives of refugees and people seeking protection in the UK and we hope that you will get a lot of personal satisfaction from working with us.

How to Apply

Applications should be made via Reach in the first instance. Please provide your CV, along with a covering letter stating why you wish to work with GMIAU and how your skills would add value to the board.
