Who we are

Glitch is a UK based charity committed to ending the abuse of women and marginalised people online. Through workshops, training, reports and programmes, we equip our intersectional community to become the digital citizens we need in the world today. From grassroots to systemic change, we
advocate for an online world that is a safe space for all.

The Chair will be required to lead and direct our close team whilst retaining its heart. This person will oversee and support all aspects of excellent financial and operational management, shaping the cycle of strategic planning, development and delivery, whilst ensuring that we deliver an effective fundraising programme. We are looking for someone with the understanding and experience of the important work which a Board delivers. The individual will also have the gravitas and confidence to help us build our Board and expand the organisation efficiently.

The Chair’s commitment will vary between 8 and 16 hours a month. This will decrease once key processes have been established and additional Trustees with specific and required skill sets have been recruited. 

The Role

● Work closely with the CEO, acting as a sounding board on all financial and operational functions of Glitch, providing ad hoc support and holding weekly one-hour meetings.

● Organise and chair Board of Trustee meetings each quarter, either virtually or in person. Each Board meeting tends to run for two hours. ● Oversee the development of the agenda and presentation of select items at the Board meeting.

● Manage the delegation of tasks and delivery of functions across the Board.

● Wok closely with the CEO to devise and implement a Fundraising Plan, including managing major donor grant development and reporting; develop vital relationships with high-net worth individuals and potential donors.

● Manage the Board’s charitable responsibilities and obligations to the Charities Commission.

● Represent Glitch and our key messages during media interviews and important networking events.

● Facilitate the recruitment of new trustees
