Whilst we remain a student-powered network, our board of trustees retain ultimate legal responsibility for all aspects of the charity and therefore must ensure all our activities further RE’s charitable purpose and retain effective oversight and scrutiny. Becoming a RE Trustee is an exciting opportunity to provide guidance, support and oversight to an international student movement and ensure that its work is sustainable and effective in the future.

To apply please send a CV, cover letter and diversity monitoring form to recruitment [at] rethinkeconomics [dot] org with the headline ‘Trustee application’.

Interviews will be held in London or Manchester in early February. Skype interviews can be arranged if requested. The first board meeting will be on 25th April 2020 but if successful we’d request the new trustees to join a subcommittee from February 2020.
