MyBnk is a national charity, successfully empowering young people to take charge of their future, by bringing money to life.
Young people remain at the heart of everything we do. Their needs, ideas, curiosities and aspirations inform our work from programme development and delivery, to brand and policy.
Good financial capability breeds better financial outcomes, opportunities and wellbeing. Money worries and debts cause hardship and stress, potentially leading to family and health issues for the individual and a cost to society.
Founded in 2007, with a vision to help create a financially capable and enterprising generation, together with young people, we have created innovative, high-impact and high-energy financial education workshops, delivered by our expert trainers. We have continued to grow in scale and reach and build MyBnk into the thriving charity it is today.
With the impending departure of our Chair, who founded MyBnk and served as our former CEO, and led and worked with the team to successfully create a shared vision and achieve positive systemic change and outcomes, working with extraordinary partners and supporters, we are at a particular seminal and exciting stage in our development
MyBnk has ambitious plans to double income over the next three years, to £3 million per annum, and to reach so many more young people. With the role of Chair offering a unique opportunity for you to help drive this growth.
You will play a key role in shaping the long-term sustainable future of MyBnk, be able to horizon scan, broker new introductions and effectively mobilise new opportunities. You will act as an ambassador and the public face of the charity in partnership with the CEO, the trustees and the patrons. You will support the CEO and ensure that the Board functions as a unit and works closely with the entire Executive of MyBnk to achieve our strategic objectives.
Closing date: Monday 30 September
