Inclusive Boards is delighted to be supporting The Public Interest Research Council (PIRC) with their search for a new Chair and Trustees.
PIRC works with groups in civil society to build framing strategies. They do this by developing participatory methods for interpreting and creating stories; connecting diverse, cross-sector groups to share knowledge and strengthen movement. A key part of PIRC’s work is investigating how best to frame issues, through participatory research and new testing methods; creating open-source resources and tools; developing knowledge and understanding of how to build non-oppressive and democratic organisations. They share their work with civil society, through networks and beyond.
As a board member, you will help shape PIRC’s strategy, policies and future development. You will be expected to attend 4 board meetings each year in the UK (location to be agreed, at least one in Machynlleth). Trustees may also be asked to attend other ad-hoc meetings. This position is voluntary and works out at about a day a month, with a minimum of three years in post. Expenses to attend meetings can be covered.
Whilst PIRC are looking for certain skills, they also want to cultivate a board with a range of perspectives that stem from different life experiences. We encourage candidates interested in shaping policy and research to get in to touch.
