Job Description

About Us

The YMCA England and Wales (YMCA EW) has an income of £18.8 million, employing 275 people and over 880 volunteers. We work on a national level to strategically support the local YMCAs by providing a voice with government, key policy makers and national media and represent them by advocating for the needs of the most vulnerable young people across England and Wales. We support local YMCAs by promoting high standards of working, sharing best practice, fundraising on their behalf, partnering with them to pilot new projects and providing training opportunities for staff and volunteers. Together, we focus on young people, helping them to play an active and fulfilling role within their communities. This is our youth-minded community approach. They also provide a wide range of community-based activities and services to help meet local needs wherever they are based.

The Appointment(s)

We look to strengthen our Board of Trustees and have several Member vacancies which are available for individuals who are currently working within the YMCAs federated structure. You could be a YMCA Board member, Chief Executive or Senior Director with aspirations to engage and support on a national level.

There is also an opportunity for two Independent Trustees who have no prior connection to the YMCA (or who have not served as a staff member in the last five years) who would be co-opted to the Board.

There are several distinct skill-sets which would complement the expertise of the Board:


  • Retail - bringing a clear understanding of retail strategy developed in the charity or private sectors

  • Income Generation - offering strategic insight into income generation and vision for greater economies of scale through collaboration and partnership

  • Policy and Campaigning - advising on strategic campaigns and lobbying priorities to strategically influence at a national level

  • Pensions - the provision of experience and leadership of good governance in pension schemes to ensure the successful management of the scheme

  • Charity Law - bringing legal knowledge and understanding of governance with a clear understanding of how this would apply within a federated structure
