Your opportunity to give back to Manchester

Published: Tuesday, 24 July 2018

Lord Mayor

We are looking for a number of new Trustees to join our Board, with particular emphasis on those with business experience or experience in the youth or voluntary sectors.

Manchester has a proud history of solidarity - of standing up for those who need help. From Peterloo to the Pankhursts, our city gives a voice to the voiceless. We stick together here, too - we know the power of community and know that, as Mancunians, we have far more in common with each other than that which divides us. And the Manchester of today is no exception. We are a bright, vibrant, successful city - but there are still some people who need a helping hand. 1 in 3 of our young people live in poverty. 1 in 10 residents have no qualifications.

So in true Mancunian style, we’re coming together to say - We Love Manchester. All of Manchester. If you are passionate about Manchester and have the knowledge, skills and networks which could help our great city be the best it can be, then the Lord Mayor of Manchester's Charity - We Love MCR, would love to hear from you.

We are currently looking for a number of new Trustees to join our Board, with particular emphasis on those with business experience or experience in the youth or voluntary sectors. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to make a real difference to the City and its people and a really exciting time to join us. The charity is focused on supporting young people to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to succeed. And supporting Manchester communities to celebrate their diversity and find common ground. All the money we raise stays here in Manchester - we are Manchester's charity.

For more information and to register your interest please contact welovemcrcharity@manchester.gov.uk.

To apply please send your CV and covering letter outlining why you would like to become a Trustee and what you feel you would bring to the Board in terms of skills, experience and networks to welovemcrcharity@manchester.gov.uk by 31st August 2018.
