Migrant Help is a national charity offering support, guidance and accommodation to vulnerable migrants across the UK. We exist to support people who are impacted by displacement and exploitation to thrive as individuals and provide services to asylum seekers, refugees and victims of human trafficking and modern slavery.

Our vision is for a global society that protects vulnerable migrants, treats them with respect and enables them to reach their full potential.

Our income is c£25m, a large proportion of which comes through statutory funding. We also have a successful social enterprise, Clear Voice, an interpreting and translation service whose profits go back into the charity.

We are looking to augment, grow and diversify our board with a number of trustees who would like to play part in delivering our charitable aims and strategic objectives.

Find out more about us on our website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or our YouTube channel.

 

What we are looking for

We are looking to augment, grow and diversify our board with a number of trustees who would like to play part in delivering our charitable aims and strategic objectives.

We are looking for:

  • Individuals with expertise in at least one of the following areas:
    – Finance
    – Developing user led organisations
    – Public relations
    – Equality and diversity
    – Impact assessment
    – Safeguarding
    – The law
    – Income generation
    • Two finance skilled trustees to sit on the main Board and the Finance Committee.
    • Individuals who can bring first-hand or indirect experience of being a refugee or migrant into the UK, either recently or in past generations.
    • Someone who would have the time and expertise to transition into the Chair roles for the Board of Trustees and separately for our social enterprise. They need to have additional time available (4-5 hours a week).
    We are ideally looking for individuals with trustee or non-executive experience. We would also welcome individuals with an understanding of public sector commissioning at a national, regional or local level; and experience and/or understanding of the support and care of victims of trafficking.
  • Most importantly, of course, you will have compassion for the challenges facing refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.
