RESULTS’s grassroots network is a movement of passionate, committed, everyday people who, use their voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. We have volunteer groups across the UK that meet at least once a month to take regular campaign actions. Our campaigners learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to education, health, and economic opportunities in the poorest communities. The dedication of our volunteers speaks to both our values and history.
Given our mission, we ask our grassroots network to elect one of its number to our Board every two years, to serve a single three-year term. Whilst this is an elected post, we expect candidates to have a good understanding of what it means to be a RESULTS grassroots campaigner, and while you will participate as a full Board Member is every respect, with all rights and responsibilities, you have an important additional role in bringing the perspective of a grassroots campaigner to RESULTS governing body.
Please see the full Role Desctiption (attached) for details.
The closing date for nominations in 5 pm on Friday 17 July 2020. Please note that you should only nominate yourself for this position and not another person.
Under normal circumstances, Grassroots Trustee Elections would take place during the RESULTS National Conference in June, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are looking at alternative ways of holding elections in late July/ early August 2020. Applicants will be informed of the process in due course.
For more information or an informal chat about the opportunity please contact either the Executive Director Aaron Oxley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Head of Campaigns, Naveed Chaudhri (email@example.com).
