Job Role
Contract Type:
Closing Date:

Do you care deeply about Wales’ future and want to help shape it?

The Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA) is looking to expand its Board of Trustees to ensure it has a diverse range of expertise and experience to oversee the next stage of this influential think-tank’s development.

We are looking for up to 4 people to join our current Board of Trustees. We list below some of the specific skills and experience that we are looking for. We would not expect any single individual to have everything that we are looking for – so please let us know what your particular strength is.

If you are interested in an informal discussion about what the role entails, please contact Helen Molyneux, Chair of the IWA, and send your CV and a short covering letter for her attention to before 12th December 2017.

Specific skills and experience

Do you have experience in one or more of the following areas?

Engagement and involvement strategies – we want to ensure that we engage more effectively with people with lived experience of the issues that we are focussing on

Digital communications and marketing – so that our research, publications and events reach an even wider audience and their impact is even greater

Entrepreneurship or running your own business – to provide balance to our current Board’s experience

Can you help us be more diverse?

While our current Board has a good gender balance, we would like our Board to be more diverse so we welcome applications from people from BME communities.

Would you identify yourself as right of the political centre?

As an independent, impartial organisation, we wish to ensure the political balance of our Board. We therefore currently welcome applications from people who would identify as right of the political centre.

An inclusive, welcoming, all Wales organisation

We warmly welcome applications from younger people, from people right across Wales, and in particular from north Wales. We are conscious that many of our current trustees are south Wales based, and – as an all Wales organisation – we are working actively to remedy this.
