Job description

We are looking for an experienced chair who is ready to lead a ground-breaking organisation at the forefront of fighting gender-based violence, with a radically transparent and inclusive digital approach. 

We need someone who has a proven track record of Chairing a Board of Trustees as we undergo a transition to CIO status. We have recruited several brilliant, passionate and dedicated trustees, and need an experienced hand to guide the forming team, and to instigate effective and inclusive board practices.

We want someone who is resourceful, thoughtful and determined to help Chayn scale its impact and become a sustainable organisation. 

We especially encourage applications from people of colour, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, and people who have experienced other exclusion or marginalisation. 

For logistical reasons, we are seeking trustees who are based in the UK

We feel it’s essential that trustees are aligned with our values and ethical framework: that all trustees have a passion for gender equality and a belief in co-designing with, not for. Chayn is an intersectional feminist organisation that believes in women’s rights and gender, religious, racial & class equality. We work hard to improve women’s lives all over the world and believe in a woman’s right to her own choices and decisions. We believe in a woman's rights to agency and make her own choices and decisions, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, economic activity, religion, and more.
