Job description

Breck Foundation is at the forefront of efforts to safeguard children and young people online. Our organisation was founded in 2014 in response to the tragic loss of Breck Bednar, a 14-year-old boy who was groomed and murdered by someone he met online. Our work aims to prevent this from ever happening again. Our work saves lives.

We reach thousands of children and young people in schools and other community settings across the UK with Breck's story. Our talks and educational materials fill a gap in the current UK curriculum that otherwise leaves children vulnerable to online grooming and exploitation.

With the online world becoming ever more ubiquitous and thus a more and more dangerous place for children and young people, and several national and global factors combining to create a more challenging environment for charities, sustaining our work has never been more important than now. This role is crucial to our ability to rise to the challenges of keeping children and young people safe online.

Our trustees play a vital role in making sure that Breck Foundation achieves its core purpose. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity. They also ensure that Breck Foundation has a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision. Just as importantly, they support and challenge the executive team to enable Breck Foundation to grow and thrive, and through this, achieve our mission.

Board members have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals.

Our Board meetings are held virtually and so you can be based in any part of the United Kingdom.

Duties

  • Support and provide advice on Breck Foundation’s purpose, vision, goals, and activities.
  • Approve operational strategies, policies, and monitor and evaluate their implementation.
  • Oversee Breck Foundation’s financial plans, budgets and monitor and evaluate progress.
  • Ensure the effective and efficient administration of the organisation.
  • Ensure that key risks are being identified, monitored, and controlled effectively.
  • Review and approve the foundation’s financial statements.
  • Provide support and challenge to the CEO in the exercise of their delegated authority and affairs.
  • Keep abreast of changes in Breck Foundation’s operating environment.
  • Contribute to regular reviews of the foundation’s own governance. Attend Board meetings, adequately prepared to contribute to discussions.
  • Use independent judgment, acting legally and in good faith to promote and protect Breck Foundation’s interests, to the exclusion of their own personal and/or any third-party interests.
  • Contribute to the broader promotion of the foundation’s objects, aims and reputation by applying your skills, expertise, knowledge, and contacts.

As a small charity, there will be times when the trustees will need to be actively involved beyond Board meetings. This may involve scrutinising board papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, presenting externally, or other issues in which the trustee has special expertise.

What we are looking for

We are looking for people willing to bring energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to the role, and who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our board.

We are looking for people with particular skills in the following areas:

  • Comms & Marketing
  • Fundraising
  • Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) 

You do not need previous governance experience – we will provide a full induction and training.

Personal skills and qualities

  • Willingness and ability to understand and accept their responsibilities and liabilities as trustees and to act in the best interests of the organisation.
  •  Ability to think creatively and strategically, exercise good, independent judgement and work effectively as a board member.
  • Effective communication skills and willingness to participate actively in discussion.
  • A strong personal commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
  • Enthusiasm for our vision and mission.
  • Willingness to lead according to our values.
  • Commitment to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.

Salary:

This is a voluntary position, but reasonable expenses are reimbursed

Time commitment:           

Attending 4 Board meetings annually (held remotely)

Attending training (where required) and annual events

Committee membership:

Ad hoc and occasional support through working groups and/or support to the executive team

Closing date:                   

9am Wednesday 3rd April 2024

Interviews:                       

w/c 15th April 2024 (remotely via Microsoft Teams)
