"Today we are at the start of an ambitious period of growth, building up to our 60th anniversary in 2025." - Jeremy Soames, Chairman
Chair of Trustees Jeremy Soames explains: “The Churchill Fellowship is a unique charity supporting a national network of 3,800 inspiring individuals who are powering change in every part of UK life. They are all united by a common mission: to develop new solutions for today’s key challenges, based on learning from the world.
“The last 18 months, during the pandemic, have been a period of adaptation and innovation for us,” he added. “In April 2020 we launched a new grant programme to support Fellows’ Covid related work. The halt in international travel has seen us trialling a Digital Fellowship, and we are piloting a second new grant scheme to increase Fellows’ UK impact. We have also launched a new website to enable us to share Fellows’ ideas and expertise more widely.
“Today we are at the start of an ambitious period of growth as we increase our support for the impact that Fellows make, embed a new development operation and devise our next five year plan, building up to our 60th anniversary in 2025.”
We are looking for a Trustee who shares our vision for practical change driven by frontline people and global ideas. The successful candidate will have relevant and recent financial, governance and audit experience and will be happy to join our Audit, Risk and Governance Subcommittee. Previous charity experience is not required.
We are committed to diversifying our board and are seeking applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences. As a national charity we welcome applications from across the UK.
Applications close on 5th October at 5pm. Download recruitment pack.
