Job description

Right to Succeed brings the community together to transform outcomes for children because we believe every child deserves the right to succeed, no matter where they live.

Right to Succeed is a fast-growing charity making the transition from start-up to a sustainable, impactful organisation. It was founded in March 2015, and takes a collective approach to creating positive change for children, working to generate place-based change in the most left-behind communities nationally. Everyone who works with and for our charity is dedicated to trying to solve the challenges and overcoming the barriers, bringing together local and national partners to overcome the barriers that are preventing children living in poverty doing well at school and beyond.

At this exciting time, as we are continuing to grow and scale our work, we are looking to recruit a Trustee with senior fundraising experience, in the broadest sense. This individual will support the Board's knowledge of fundraising and advise the executive in devising fundraising strategies. The board are seeking someone with knowledge of fundraising among one or more of the following; High-Net-Worth Individuals, Trusts/Foundations, Major Donors, Philanthropy. This individual will bring leadership experience and the ability to Chair the Development Committee.

Right to Succeed believes passionately that truly inclusive organisations lead to increased social impact. It is committed to achieving greater diversity in its board, and actively encourages applications from people from Black, Asian, and minoritised ethnic backgrounds, and disabled people.

We are also keen to encourage applications from those with lived experience of overcoming one or more of the issues our programmes seek to address, as we understand the extra value that this brings to understanding our programmes.
