Youth Futures Foundation
Board Member and Chair of Finance & Audit Committee


The Youth Futures Foundation is a new, independent, not for profit organisation set up to tackle youth unemployment with a £90million endowment from the Reclaim Fund.

The organisation is committed to:

  • Equipping young people from diverse backgrounds to access and progress in work
  • Removing structural and systemic barriers to employment and progression

Youth Futures has the opportunity to create a profound change in the way this country supports young people who face disadvantage into employment. Improving employment prospects for all young people is a crucial factor in achieving national productivity gains, reducing the benefits bill, and enhancing health and well-being in society. Covid-19 has made this even more urgent.

We are now looking for a new Board Member to join the organisation and Chair the Finance & Audit Committee. As one of its first Board Members, you will have the opportunity to shape Youth Futures in its infancy, helping to bring its vision to life. Working with your Board colleagues and the staff team, you will help shape Youth Futures’ long-term strategy, then hold the executive team to account for delivery. 

For this role, we are seeking a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA or equivalent) with experience of operating in a senior leadership role within finance, ideally gained in a complex, commercial setting. It would be desirable for individuals to also have exposure to low employment/high poverty areas of the country or practical industry experience of engaging/employing young people.

If you share Youth Futures passion and commitment to helping all young people, whatever their background, overcome challenges and find meaningful work as the foundation for a better future for themselves and society, then please visit our microsite to find out more about this exciting opportunity:
