Who we are

Salusbury World is a charity supporting refugees and migrant helping young people and families to realise their rights and potential. The charity aims to empower refugees and migrants to develop the skills and confidence they need to navigate and succeed in society, and feel supported and hopeful for the future.


The role

In 2023, we faced significant challenges. We made some difficult decisions to navigate through turbulent times. With a reduction in funding, we made the hard decision to cut some of our services and make some staff redundant. We are now committed to rebuilding and pursuing our mission. We require experienced trustees who are up for a challenge, and can help guide us through this crucial phase of growth and development.

Our new chair of trustees must have:

  • Experience of being a trustee, ideally as a Chair or significant board level experience.
  • Experience of working in a ‘change environment’ & able to drive strategy forward
  • A strong understanding of charity governance
  • The ability and confidence to champion Salusbury World’s work through personal networks, social media and other channels
  • ​A ‘can-do’ attitude and inspirational approach.

​You should have a clear understanding of the legal duties of Trusteeship and experience working at a strategic governance level. Previous Board experience would be an advantage. We’re open to applications from anyone with relevant senior level experience, but we are particularly interested in hearing from those with the following experience:

  • Fundraising
  • Governance in a small charity
  • Small charity or business leader
  • Finance Director
