Are you the new PIRC Chair?

Are you the new PIRC Chair?

At PIRC, in response to Covid-19, we have been reshaping and rethinking our work. This includes taking workshops online, designing new narrative strategy and messaging sessions, and analysing the narrative of the pandemic as it unfolds – including mapping key beliefs and analysing the prominent metaphors. Alongside this we are supporting each other to play a role in mutual aid efforts and care for ourselves and our families. We recognise this is a moment to pause, as well as respond.

We are seeking a new Chair of Trustees to work alongside us in this time of change.   

The new PIRC Chair will be excited by narrative strategy and framing, and interested in how to integrate this work into social movements. You will be keen to support a flat-structured organisation and interested in grappling with the challenges and opportunities that working horizontally throws up. You will have strong facilitation skills to keep board meetings to task, and the organisational skills to hold the board and team to account.

You will be joining our award-winning board of trustees who work closely with the staff team and offer invaluable support.

As Chair, you will be responsible for:

  • Developing an inclusive and healthy board culture
  • Advising on and helping to develop PIRC’s strategy
  • Ensuring that PIRC’s work is in compliance with governing documents and the law
