UNA-UK Chair - Board of Directors 

Voluntary position commencing in June 2022

The United Nations Association – UK (UNA-UK) is the only charity in the UK devoted to building support for the UN amongst policymakers, opinion-formers and the public. UNA-UK is looking for an outstanding and inspiring individual to help this charity punch above its weight.

The past few years have seen our operating environment change drastically, with unprecedented global turmoil and domestic political volatility. We are proud to have risen to the challenge, with a dynamic team, significant campaign wins and a strong medium term financial position. As our current Chair completes the end of his term, we are looking for a new Chair to help us in a voluntary capacity as we seek to:

  • Build on our excellent reputation and record of achievement
  • Position ourselves as visionary organisation that embodies its values
  • Stay ahead of the curve as we create our ‘new normal’

As we are yet to have a female chair in our 75 year history, we particularly welcome applications from women, as well as from ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ and persons with disabilities.
