Job description

LMK – Let Me Know is a London based education charity running a proven prevention programme against relationship abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence. We have worked with over 10,000 young people in our first 3 years across 22 London boroughs. Two thirds of the young people we work with tell us we’ve fundamentally changed their understanding of healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviours and 84% know how to leave an abusive relationship safely. 

Are you passionate about tackling relationship abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault? Are you eager to help young people to protect their mental health and thrive in their relationships? Are you motivated by LMK’s values of being Kind, Brave, Open and Collaborative? Do you want to use your time and skills to support a small, ambitious charity making a big impact in the charity sector?

If so, you could be one of the three people LMK is looking for to join our Board of Trustees.

You do not need to have previous experience of a board role, but you do need to care deeply about the work that we do and have the time, skills and experience to contribute to the work of the board. We are particularly keen to hear from people with expert, working experience of governance, risk and compliance programmes, and safeguarding. We are looking for:

Vice Chair With previous experience of chairing meetings and strong leadership skills, you will deputise for and provide support to the Chair in carrying out their responsibilities. You will have, or be willing to develop, a strong understanding of best-practice in charity governance and an ability to implement it in a small charity context. You will act as a ‘critical friend’ and sounding board to the Chair, while remaining open to feedback about the Chair, LMK and the operations of the board from other Trustees, the CEO and members of staff. LMK’s Vice Chair will be asked to take on specific responsibility for risk and compliance, providing expertise and oversight of the risk register and contributing to sub-committees as needed.

Chair of Safeguarding Subcommittee Experience of managing safeguarding operations and up to date knowledge of safeguarding legislation is key for this role. You will champion safeguarding at board level and, through your role as Chair of the Safeguarding Subcommittee, work with the staff team to ensure that LMK has effective policy and practice in place, as well as the right culture and understanding around duty of care more generally. 

Trustee (Generalist) You will have experience in one of the following sectors: VAWG, Education, Mental Health, Community Engagement or Youth Work, and be willing to use your knowledge to guide LMK in the creation of its strategy, programmes, materials, and marketing or social media content.

If you would like to apply for the role of LMK Trustee, please look at the recruitment pack and follow the process on P9 which tells you to send us an application, explaining:

  • Why you are interested in joining LMK.

  • What role you are applying for Vice Chair, Chair of Safeguarding Subcommittee or Trustee (Generalist).

  • What knowledge, skills and experience you have gained in your life that could benefit LMK.

  • Why you feel you could make a difference to LMK.

  • You can also attach your CV or other supporting material if you think it could help your application.

Deadline: 8th January 2024.
