The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) wishes to appoint a co-opted member to join its Power and Accountability Committee from October 2020. The Committee is looking for someone with experience relating to corporate accountability to support our grant making programme. The Trust’s Power and Accountability programme is working towards a vision of a world in which power is more equally shared, and in which powerful institutions are more responsive and accountable to wider society and more aligned with the long-term public interest. The programme supports a variety of approaches with a focus on systemic change to improve corporate accountability, support democratic reform and encourage a responsible media. We mainly fund work in the UK, with a small number of grants for wider European work. The role of a co-opted member is to complement the trustees’ grant-making knowledge with expertise in corporate accountability. We are looking for someone with knowledge of the policy landscape, current challenges and opportunities and an awareness of organisations working in the field.
