With education, activism, anti-racism and social justice at our roots, we wish to recruit an inspiring individual with HR & OD skills in support our vision: to promote the benefits of the heritage of the African Caribbean diaspora.
We are looking for an enthusiastic HR professional to support the development and establishment of robust policies to ensure that the volunteering experience is excellent and rewarding. With Recruitment and OD policies as part of their oversight, they will also recruit for key volunteer roles.
They will be able to provide recommendations to access the resources to increase our volunteer pool, suggest how to access pro-bono or inexpensive learning opportunities for the teams. Essentially, they will help manage structures that will enable us to develop a better connected volunteering network, to become empowered to increase their skills, and help them with delivering the charity’s remit. This is much needed to fuel and sustain innovative approaches to animate the narratives in the archives. They will be able to help us to seek extra specialist pro-bono support, e.g. from academic institutions, corporates or consultancies.
We believe that your strong leadership skills, professional expertise, and your ability to bring in other resources, means that you will be part of an important step change process that will help us deliver the charity’s remit. As a Trustee with strong innovative and practical skills, we need your support to ensure that FHALMA has a clear vision and strategy; therefore we are looking for your skills to help strengthen and underpin our voluntary structure.
We are a small team and so far we have a very good track record in delivering art and archive projects. We are keen to boost our connections across generations. (Specifically annual Huntley conferences, symposia, schools workshops, plus a ground-breaking exhibition: www.nocolourbar.org ). Our legacy means that we attract people from a range of backgrounds, but all who have a shared interest and value the contribution to current social, education, environmental improvements that Eric and Jessica Huntley have made across ALL communities, not only the African Caribbean Diaspora.
If you are keen to support the contributions of Black culture to society at large - you will enjoy working with us. Some of us are descendants from the “Windrush Generation”. Knowing that our archives have inspirational and positive stories, role models and evidentiary documents to inform, influence and encourage educational attainment in young people, is a privilege to uncover. Together, we can make a huge difference to improve the national dialogue: work across other sectors in delivering partnership projects, to reach intergenerational audiences; sharpen or learn new skills, make and build new relationships via our respective networks.
Opportunities may exist for a Trustee to bring one of their mentees to shadow them at one of the sub-committee meetings; Transformation Group: Business Planning; Fundraising; Marketing; Event Planning.
