  • Fellowship in Action

We currently have vacancies on the Fellowship Council for two representatives in Ireland, one in the Central region and one in the South East.

Fellowship Councillors are at the heart of the RSA and play a key role in ensuring that the Fellowship’s voice is heard. They provide a vital link between and support to staff and our unique global network of changemakers.  

The role of a Fellowship Councillor is three-fold, to:  

  1. Lead and drive local activity for Fellows in partnership with the Area Manager, making connections between Fellows, forming networks and being a key conduit to the work that the RSA is undertaking, 
  2. Consult on and support the delivery of relevant projects and pathways, 
  3. Represent the views of Fellows and consult on a mix of ideas, initiatives and strategies  

You can find out more about the Fellowship Council here.

Applications will be reviewed by a panel of Fellows and staff, with a shortlist invited for interview. Following the interview, recommendations will be submitted to the RSA’s Nominations and Governance Panel for approval and appointment. Successful appointees will join the Council from mid-April 2024.

Time Required for the Role  

This is a volunteer role but does require a commitment to dedicated time to be effective. All Fellowship Councillors commit to attending an induction meeting and at least three full Council meetings per year (online or hybrid), there may also be additional online meetings to support with specific projects/programmes. You would be expected to be able to set aside or dedicate at least one day a month to be able to deliver effectively in this role in addition to the commitments outlined above. All appropriate expenses will be covered.  

The deadline for applications has been extended until 9am BST on Friday 5 April 2024. Any applications received after this deadline will not be considered.

All interviews will take place between 15 - 26 April 2024. Please submit your CV along with a Cover Letter in your application.
