Job description

ESU invites visionary leaders to join their committees and shape the future of oracy education globally whilst supporting the creation and development of new ventures and a new 5-year strategy.

Location: Dartmouth House, 37 Charles St, London W1J 5ED

Closing date: Monday 25th March

Are you interested in supporting the The English-Speaking Union (ESU), a globally recognised 100-year-old organisation supporting children, young people and adults in developing speaking and listening skills? As a co-opted advisor, you will join one of our committees as we embark on new ventures to develop our site and offer, diversify our income streams, grow our volunteering and ultimately create our next 5-year strategy. We are looking for three advisors at this crucial time in our history; if you have skills and experience in developing and operating luxury high-end venues, particularly private members’ clubs, growing and supporting volunteers, and fundraising and growing organisations, we want to hear from you.

The English-Speaking Union of the Commonwealth is a membership organisation with a charitable purpose. It was founded by the journalist Sir Evelyn Wrench in 1918 and is governed by a Royal Charter, granted by Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1957. The Princess Royal is the President.

The ESU is best known for its extensive work in supporting children and young people to develop speaking and listening (oracy) skills through primary education programmes, public speaking competitions and debate. The ESU is an international organisation with a network of 54 national ESUs, each operating independently and according to its own jurisdiction. The ESU provides secretariat to the International Council.

The international headquarters of the ESU are at Dartmouth House, one of the most notable properties in Mayfair. It is Grade II Listed and is scheduled as a building of national importance. The venue is operated under licence by Graysons, who run weddings, private events, corporate activities and service our members. The ESU also operates a private members’ club at Dartmouth House, where members establish new friendships and networks through its varied events programme. We plan to refurbish our Grade II listed building in the heart of Mayfair whilst retaining our heritage and maximising our opportunities.

We plan to develop our volunteering strategy and grow our network of volunteers nationally and from within our existing membership and new audiences. Alongside planning to establish our fundraising capability to grow, diversify and enhance our education and membership offers and establishing our new fundraising strategy.

About the roles

We have just appointed a number of new Trustees to our board and are looking to appoint 3 new Co-opted Advisors who can offer us support, guidance, challenge and strategic advice through a number of our committees. The co-opted advisors will have a one-year term.

We are looking for three advisors to join our committees with the following skills and experiences:

  • Hospitality and leisure – knowledge and experience of luxury private members’ clubs, hotels or restaurants, and a proven track record of developing and operating high-end venues.
  • Volunteering – developing and launching volunteer strategies with a strong understanding of the importance of volunteers.
  • Fundraising – with a strong track record of developing fundraising strategies and experience in growing, diversifying and developing new income streams and ventures.

We expect the time commitment to include quarterly virtual committee meetings, bi-annual board meetings, and ad hoc online meetings, particularly in the early stages of our strategy development with our Trustees and members of our executive team. Overall, including meetings, ad hoc conversations, preparation for meetings and engagement, we expect the time commitment to be the equivalent of 2-3 hours a month.

Explore the rich history, global impact, and future aspirations of The English-Speaking Union and join us on a journey where language becomes a force for positive change.
