We’re recruiting trustees!

The WCIA wants everyone in Wales to contribute towards creating a fairer and more peaceful world through inspiring learning and action on global issues. Apply to be a trustee and become part of shaping an exciting and dynamic organisation.

Our trustees oversee the WCIA and direct its development and strategy. They come from a variety of backgrounds but all share the vision that we can contribute to a better world from Wales.

We’re looking for people with skills/experience/knowledge in any of the following:

  • Youth work
  • Finance
  • HR

Given our work with young people across Wales, we would like one of our new trustees to be a young person (18-25) and we welcome first-time trustees.

We have recently merged with UNA Exchange and have taken on their international exchange programmes. The WCIA is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (no. 1156822)
