Job description

At Spark! we believe it is possible for every young person to be ready and equipped to enter the world of work. We work in partnership with schools and colleges, and alongside a large and diverse range of employers and funders, enhancing young people’s employability skills, knowledge, and experience, so that they are better prepared for and able to effectively transition into the workplace, finding and keeping a job.

Spark! is looking for up to three Trustees to join its Board. We are seeking applications from individuals who represent a range of backgrounds, and especially those with an interest in the state education sector, employability, and careers provisions.

Having recently undergone a Trustee skills audit we are particularly interested to receive applications from those who have experience in income generation, policy work, marketing and communications, or digital engagement, but do not let these specialisms put you off applying!

We are also keen for our Board to reflect the communities we serve, and very much welcome applications from those with relevant lived experience, and candidates from black and minority ethnic communities. We are also keen to appoint a second Young Trustee, and welcome applications from under 25s.
