Vice Chair

Home, with London visits

We are looking for a Vice Chair who is experienced in risk, compliance, or governance to join our board of trustees.

Who we are

LMK – Let Me Know is a London based education charity running a proven prevention programme against relationship abuse, sexual assault, and domestic violence. We have worked with over 10,000 young people in our first 3 years across 22 London boroughs. Two thirds of the young people we work with tell us we’ve fundamentally changed their understanding of healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviours and 84% know how to leave an abusive relationship safely.

The role

Are you passionate about tackling relationship abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault? Are you eager to help young people to protect their mental health and thrive in their relationships? Are you motivated by LMK’s values of being Kind, Brave, Open and Collaborative? Do you want to use your time and skills to support a small, ambitious charity making a big impact in the charity sector?

If so, you could be the person LMK is looking for to join our Board of Trustees.

We are particularly keen to hear from people with expert, working experience of governance, risk, and compliance programmes. We also need you to care deeply about the work that we do and have the time, skills, and experience to contribute to the work of the board.

We are looking for a Vice Chair with previous experience of chairing meetings and strong leadership skills.  You will deputise for and provide support to the Chair. You will have, or be willing to develop, a strong understanding of best-practice in charity governance and an ability to implement it in a small charity context. You will act as a ‘critical friend’ and sounding board to the Chair, while remaining open to feedback about the Chair, LMK and the operations of the board from other Trustees, the CEO, and members of staff. LMK’s Vice Chair will be asked to take on specific responsibility for risk and compliance, providing expertise and oversight of the risk register and contributing to sub-committees as needed.

Closing Date for Applications: 12th April 2024.

To Apply: Applications should consist of:

A covering letter (maximum of two pages) outlining:

  • What knowledge, skills and experience you have gained in your life that could benefit LMK.
