Job description

We are looking for a senior HR expert and a lived experience of White City in west London to join board of new youth charity and be part of project that aims to improve life chances of thousands of young people.

West Youth Zone is a new state of the art youth club being built in White City, West London, which will support thousands of local young people to reach their full potential by giving them ‘somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to’. This new charity is part of a Network of 14 OnSide Youth Zones across the country, offering affordable, inclusive access to a broad range of high-quality positive activities including; sports, arts, employability and, personal and social development, for 8-19 year olds and up to 25 for young people with additional needs.

We would love to hear from people with senior HR expertise and a lived experience of this area of London, who are passionate about supporting and developing opportunities for young people. You will be dynamic, motivated, and able to actively contribute your time and expertise for the benefit of the charity, through the role of HR Trustee. 

You don't need to have previous Trustee experience but you will have experience working as a senior HR professional in organisations of at least 50 staff, who will be able to support and advise the Youth Zone's full time paid management team to ensure that HR activities and interventions are linked to the Youth Zone’s charitable objects and strategic objectives. As part of the OnSide Network, you will be able to draw on policies and support from OnSide and other peer HR trustees of other Youth Zones.

The strength of the OnSide Network of Youth Zones is the diversity of its people; we place huge value on different people doing things in different ways and we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.  The one thing we all have in common is our desire to raise the aspirations of young people across the country.

If you are interested and would like to to apply, please submit your CV and a very short covering letter (two pages maximum), clearly stating what you would bring as an HR trustee of West Youth Zone.

We will keep this advert open until we find a suitable candidate with regular, ongoing interviews.
