What does a FIRST UK Trustee actually do?


More than shuffling papers and reading reports – you’ll play an active role in ensuring the charity complies with its statutory obligations, deploys resources effectively in pursuit of impact, and mitigates risks, while moving forward at pace.


Your critical thinking, insight and experience will drive the charity’s new 3-year strategy. You’ll be coming on board at an inflection point – moving us from STEM enrichment for the masses to targeted provision for the underserved.
