Applications are now open for Chair of Trustees at Smart Works Greater Manchester image

A rare opportunity has arisen for a Chair of Trustees to lead our Smart Works Greater Manchester centre.

Smart Works Greater Manchester opened in June 2015, the first Smart Works centre in England outside of London. Since then they have supported over 1200 women in need and over 67% have gone on to succeed at their job interviews, despite more than half having been unemployed for more than a year and 20% for over 5 years.

We are looking for a Chair of Trustees to take the organisation to our next stage of growth, provide leadership to the trustee, staff and volunteer team, expand our service and help more women across the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester. We want to hear from dynamic, entrepreneurial and inspiring individuals with a desire to help women into employment in their home city. They will relish the challenge of building a start-up charity and will want to get involved in day-to-day operations as well as fundraising and profile building in the Greater Manchester area.

You may have a background in the charity sector; you may have experience in fashion; you may work in the private sector and relish a new challenge; or you may be none of these things. There is no typical Smart Works person. We are committed to helping women and insist on a collaborative approach, learning from each other to help deliver the services uniquely provided by Smart Works.
