About the role:
We are looking for a new Board Member (company director) to contribute to the organisation's governance. Currently we have a board of seven members and a review of the board skills, knowledge and experience have highlighted a gap around new economy expertise.
We are interested in hearing from people who may not have been board members before, but who have a good knowledge of new economics thinking in the UK and internationally. We are especially keen to engage someone who has a clear vision for how the movements that NEON works with can engage with the new economics agenda both in theory and practice.
The New Economy Organisers Network (NEON) is a not-for-profit company with 15 staff members and a network of over 1600 UK organisers from different trade unions, grassroots groups, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), faith-based campaigns, civil society groups and movements from across the country. We run powerful training and support campaigns to help progressives win social, economic and environmental justice.
This is an exciting time for NEON as the organisation has grown significantly throughout 2020, and never before has our work been more important. We are a year into delivering our three-year strategy that takes us to 2023 and have demonstrated considerable impact over the course of the last year.
