For over half a century, JCWI has been leading the fight for a fairer, more just immigration system, with a track record of creating change. We're looking for a new chair to help lead a dynamic board and a growing organisation.
JCWI is seeking to appoint a Chair to lead our Executive Committee (our board of trustees) and work with the Chief Executive to steer the organisation through an exciting period of growth, impact and organisational development.
The duties of the Chair include:
We're looking for an experienced leader, with a strategic focus and a strong commitment to our values of openness, justice and equality. Candidates should be able to demonstrate:
JCWI particularly welcomes applications from individuals with direct lived experience of migration and asylum.
Our organisation has gone through an exciting period of growth and change and, as our Chair prepares to retire, our Chief Executive and our amazing Executive Committee (our board of trustees) are looking for somebody with a commitment to our values who can help us secure our long-term sustainability and impact. The Chair will help shape our priorities, support our Chief Executive and ensure that our board is working effectively to identify and manage risks and to create and take advantage of opportunities.
This is a great opportunity for the right person to get involved with a dynamic, high-profile organisation, to be an ambassador for our values and our campaigns and to work with a team that punches far above its weight, delivering real impact and lasting change and shaping our national conversations about migration, race and justice.
Applications will remain open until a suitable candidate has been identified.
