Unity (formerly known as Unity Enterprise) was set up in 1989.
The focus of the organisation initially was employment opportunities for young people who might otherwise be excluded or face significant barriers to employment.
Over the years, Unity has grown and developed, delivering a variety of services in different communities, and some of these continue today. Examples include work and training for people with learning disabilities, advice and support for carers of all ages, housing support to people affected by homelessness and catering services operated as Social Enterprises that offer additional training and work experience. We are always innovating and developing new projects to ensure our social impact for individuals and communities.
In January 2016, Unity experienced a change in leadership for the first time since its inception. The Board have supported a number of changes which have helped us build on the quality of our services, think about the future and direction of Unity, and explore how we can continue to have a positive impact. We are committed to our key aims of Equality, Inclusion and Opportunity.
We continue to grow and develop, with a variety of projects and initiatives planned for the near future. We are now seeking Board Members who share our core values, have a passion for social enterprise and will uphold our commitment to equality, inclusion and opportunity for all.
The Unity Board of Directors provide governance to the organisation; ensuring our purpose remains clear and has benefit, ensuring our compliance at all level, supporting responsible financial management, ensuring the charity, and senior management team, are accountable.
When Unity was set up, the Board represented different Christian denominations, who supported the aims of the organisation. We have since built on our board membership, recognising the strength of wider representation. We hope to diversify our membership further, with respect to our guiding principles and with a key focus on welcoming those who share our core values.
The Unity Board shall have a minimum number of ten and a maximum number of twelve directors. Eight places are currently filled, with one members having indicated their intention to end their term after this coming year. The term is for a minimum of three years.
Board member responsibilities include attendance at a minimum of four out of the six scheduled meetings per year alongside active participation in electronic conversations where necessary. It may be reasonable to expect attendance at some additional meetings where this is meaningful and manageable, or providing representation at other relevant events.
Board positions require a time and energy commitment that should not be underestimated. Interested members are urged to consider personal priorities for the next year as well as the ways to contribute to the development of Unity. The Board currently meets six times per year, although this may be subject to change. Some members attend other meetings, for example as a member of the Finance Committee.
You should be able to commit to attending meetings and responding to communication as required.
We particularly welcome applicants who can demonstrate experience in one or more of the following areas;
· HR and/or employment law (this would be particularly advantageous)
· Marketing, Communications & Social Media

· Experience of having worked in the third sector, or specific experience of services delivered to carers, people with learning disabilities, people affected by homelessness and poverty or groups/individuals at risk of exclusion or discrimination
