Job description

The Martin James Foundation (MJF) is a global network of charitable organisations working with a shared vision of a world in which children grow up and thrive in safe and loving families.

Through our work, we strive to bring an end to institutional care for children, including orphanages, by engaging in family strengthening work and gatekeeping to prevent family separation, reunification and reintegration of children back into their families and communities when possible and facilitating family-based alternative care when it is necessary. Finally, we are committed to supporting young people to thrive while realising their full potential.

The Foundation is comprised of the following:

• MJF Global - utilises technical and financial resources generated by the Foundation to invest in partner organisations that support children and families in various countries, contributing to the global efforts in deinstitutionalising care practices.

• Key Assets - independent, non-profit fostering agencies in Australia, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand delivering charitable services for children, families and communities.

• EPIC - a programme which supports young people in the UK who have faced adversity or have lived experience of care, empowering them to create and launch their own businesses.

The Role:

The Martin James Foundation is entering a transformative phase and is inviting passionate, committed individuals to join our Board of Trustees during this pivotal moment. We seek to welcome Board Members who can offer fresh perspectives, fill existing skill gaps, and guide the charity on its mission to support children, families, and communities worldwide. 

We are particularly interested in candidates with diverse experiences and backgrounds. Among our new trustees, we hope to include:

• Individuals with lived experience of alternative care whose experiences and insights will guide us to create impactful and responsive services that always prioritise the best interests of children. Your perspective will shape policies and programmes, building trust within communities and shaping a culture of inclusivity. 

• An individual with a finance background, particularly in the non-profit sector, to guide us on financial matters and help us navigate the unique financial landscape of charities with both strategic insight and practical oversight.

The commitment for trustees averages eight days per year, including remote quarterly Board meetings, participation in technical sub-committees, and strategic sessions with the leadership team. Although the positions are voluntary, we ensure that reasonable expenses are covered and any necessary training costs are provided.

We are dedicated to meaningfully diversifying our Board, aiming to enhance our perspectives and approaches with a range of voices and experiences. Therefore, we encourage applicants of all ages and diverse backgrounds to consider these roles, particularly those with lived experience of alternative care or from outside the UK. 

Please refer to our Trustee Role Information documents for further details on the roles. To apply, please send a cover letter and CV outlining what experience you can bring to the role  by 7 January 2024.
