What is The PressPad Charitable Foundation?

The PressPad Charitable Foundation is an organisation founded in 2021 to improve social mobility in the media.

We created this organisation to work alongside, and not in place of, the pre-existing social enterprise PressPad Ltd founded by Olivia Crellin in 2018.

It was following great interest from multiple donors that we decided to create a hybrid structure with clear governance, oversight and transparency in both organisations to best carry out our mission and purpose. The foundation will allow charitable activities carried out by the social enterprise previously (including PressPad Remote) to be funded for by grants and donations, and overseen by a board of trustees.

The existence of the charitable foundation will also better enable us to pass on funding to smaller and more niche organisations whose missions align with ours in order to strengthen and raise up other organisations to join a coalition of projects working in this space.


Legal Specialist Trustee of The PressPad Charitable Foundation

In addition to the general responsibilities of a trustee, duties of the legal specialist trustee are as follows.

  • Support the organisation to assess areas of legal risk.

  • Work with the organisation and its staff to develop risk management strategies in relation to legal compliance

  • To provide training to other Board of Trustee members in relevant areas. 

  • To review and provide guidance on contracts and service agreements. 

  • To review and set organisational policies in relevant areas. 

  • Sitting on appraisal, recruitment and disciplinary panels as required


Person specification 

  • A commitment to the organisation and understanding of The PressPad Charitable Foundation operating environment

  • In possession of a relevant legal qualification 

  • Experience of providing legal support and advice (to a charity would be desirable but not essential) 

  • Ability to develop and review policy documents 

  • Ability to develop and review contractual documents

  • A willingness to devote the necessary time and effort 

  • A willingness to be available to staff for advice and enquiries on an ad hoc basis: as a small charity, we would benefit from support in between meetings with assistance on any contracts the charity has to sign or other legal input.

  • Strategic vision 

  • Good, independent judgement 

  • An ability to think creatively 

  • A willingness to speak their mind 

  • An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship 

  • An ability to work effectively as a member of a team 

  • A commitment to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. 

  • A commitment to diversity and inclusion in all its forms
