Job description

Youth Futures Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation established in December 2019 to improve employment outcomes for young people from marginalised backgrounds. Youth Futures launched with an initial endowment of £90 million from the Dormant Assets Scheme and, in January 2022, the government announced that we had been allocated a further £20 million.

Our vision is to create a society where all young people have equitable access to good quality jobs.

We are committed to removing the structural and systemic barriers to employment and progression young people from marginalised backgrounds face. We take an evidence-led, structural and systems-based approach that recognises the importance of national learnings and local context.

In 2021 we launched our Youth Employment Evidence and Gap Map - the world's largest, quality-checked evidence base on youth employment - that shows the global evidence base on what works to improve youth skills, employment and job quality.

We promote strong coordination and partnership working across government, funders, delivery organisations and employers. Our flagship £6.1million Connected Futures Fund aims to address fragmentation at a local level to reduce the fragmentation of youth employment and skills delivery in the places that need it most, so that young people furthest from the job market receive consistent high-quality support to address complex needs.

Youth Futures Foundation

Non-Executive Chair

Remunerated - £12,000 per annum

UK

As someone joining an organisation that launched in 2019, you will have the opportunity to shape Youth Futures as it moves into its next stage, helping to bring its vision to life. Leading your Board colleagues and the staff team, you will help shape our long-term strategy, then hold the executive team to account for delivery. You will bring your experience and contacts to bear as an independent, critical, yet supportive friend to the staff team and an important ambassador for our work with external stakeholders. Crucially, you will help us oversee governance systems that are appropriate for a £110million grant-making organisation.

If you share our passion and commitment to create a society where all young people have equitable access to good quality jobs, we would love to hear from you.

The young people we aim to serve - and the challenges they face - are all unique. We need to build a team that reflects this diversity, is highly skilled and committed.

Our commitment to inclusion across all protected characteristics, experiences and socioeconomic background forms the cornerstone of our work. In building the Board, the Future Voices Group, and making external appointments to the Grants Committee, we have also ensured our governance and advisory structures contain a broad diversity of background and experience.

To learn more about this unique opportunity, and to find out how to apply, please read the full appointment brief, on the Prospectus website, which can be reached by clicking on the “Apply on Website” Button.

Closing date: Wednesday 13 July
