Closing date: 4 July, 5pm

Young Women’s Trust champions young women aged 18 to 30 on low or no pay. We’re here to create a more equal world of work and raise young women’s incomes.

We offer young women free coaching, feedback on job applications and information to help them get where they want to be. We bring together a network of thousands of young women to support each other, build their self-belief, and have their voices heard. We work with young women to campaign for equality in the workplace. And our research provides insight into what young women’s lives are really like, fuelling our campaigns for change.

We are looking for a Chair of Trustees who is passionate about addressing the economic injustices faced by a generation of young women trapped in low pay or no pay. Our ideal candidate will also be a brilliant ambassador who will use their networks to raise our profile and credibly influence decision makers in cross-party politics as well as employers to bring about a more equal world of work.
