Working Chance

We're looking for trustees to help set and oversee the strategic direction of our charity. Our trustees play a vital role in helping us bring about our vision of a society in which no woman is held back by a conviction.

Who we are

Working Chance helps women with convictions to develop the confidence, skills and self-belief they need to overcome any barriers to their employment, find jobs and build careers.
We work with organisations of all sizes across all sectors to find opportunities for women that align with their skills and aspirations.
Since 2009, Working Chance has supported thousands of women into employment and many more on their journeys towards financial independence. To women with convictions, a job is more than an income - it means a future where she and her family can flourish.

At present we have specific skills gaps on our Board and so we are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have professional fundraising experience and/or professional experience of working in the criminal justice system.

We're also looking for a finance professional to be our Treasurer: to provide scrutiny and oversight of our finances.

We’re passionate about ensuring that there’s a strong mix on our Board of Trustees of people with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and skills. We believe that by having a diverse group of people we can collectively make better decisions and better serve our beneficiaries. We are particularly keen to hear from people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.
