Do you want to be part of the movement for migrant rights in the UK? Do you have the skills and experience to help a small national organisation continue to punch above its weight?
Right to Remain is seeking to recruit volunteer board members for our Management Committee. We are looking for people with the skills, experience, energy and time to commit to our vital work – we are particularly interested in hearing from people with experience in line management, project management, fundraising, or communications, and/or with good administrative and organisational skills.
We are a national human rights organisation, founded in 1995 (known as the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns until 2013), working to build a strong movement for migration justice in the UK.
We work with groups across the UK supporting migrants to establish their right to remain with dignity, safety and humanity, and injustice in the unjust asylum/immigration system. Please read more about our work on our website.
Right to Remain is a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee. It is a membership organisation, governed by a management committee of volunteer company directors. The Committee has the ultimate responsibility for running the organisation – for its property, finances and the employment of any staff or volunteers. Right to Remain currently employs three full-time and one part-time staff members.
Committee members are unpaid, but travel expenses to meetings are reimbursed. The Committee meets with staff every two months – most frequently in London, but as committee members are located across the UK, the venue varies and we periodically meet by conference call. The committee may be asked to contribute to discussions or make decisions by email or telephone if the business cannot wait till the next meeting.
In addition to attending management committee meetings whenever possible, and the annual general meeting, committee members are required to commit to undertaking small pieces of work in-between meetings, including (but not limited to) reading meeting minutes, writing reports or papers and carrying out agreed actions.
Management committee members must be members of Right to Remain. It is simple and free to join – read more here.
Right to Remain particularly welcomes applications from people with direct experience of the UK’s asylum and immigration system.
To apply to join the Right to Remain Management Committee, please fill out the application form here and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications is 31 October 2017.
