APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN - Apply now to be a Trustee at LGBT Foundation

Are you ready for a new challenge, where you can make a real difference by helping one of the most exciting charities in the country to continue our life-affirming, life-transforming, life-saving work?

We’re recruiting new board members.

At LGBT Foundation we believe in a fair and equal society where all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people can achieve their full potential. We campaign for equality and deliver a huge range of vital services to LGBTQ+ people.

We are seeking people who can help us drive forward the vision of LGBT Foundation over the coming years. We’re looking for people who are passionate about LGBTQ+ rights and want to join us on our journey of achieving equality, promoting safety and encouraging wellbeing.

We are looking to have the right skills on the board, so if you have experience in accountancy, sales or income generation, housing or political understanding, then please consider applying. However, if you don’t have these specific skills please don’t rule yourself out.

Our charity has expanded its geography in recent years and we’re keen to hear from people based in Liverpool or London. Our board is gender balanced and 50% of trustees are people of colour. We’ve worked hard to achieve this balance and are keen to maintain it, but we’d also like to increase bi, trans and non-binary representation.

Trustees are responsible for the governance and strategic direction of the charity, and there are certain roles and responsibilities that all trustees will be required to undertake. Being a trustee is a voluntary role, but we do pay reasonable travel and subsistence expenses. If you think you could join us and help make a real difference to the lives of LGBTQ+ people, please read the Trustee Recruitment Pack for more information and find out how to apply.

To apply, please email a cover letter of no more than 1,000 words outlining why you think you’re right for the board, along with an up-to-date CV and the monitoring form.

Send your application to recruitment@lgbt.foundation using the email header “Trustee Recruitment”.

The closing date for applications is 9am on the 26th September 2022. Interviews will take place week commencing 10th October 2022, with offers made the following week with a view to new trustees being confirmed at our AGM on Saturday 22nd October 2022.

You can also contact Smyth Harper, LGBT Foundation Chair, on smyth.harper@lgbt.foundation for more information.
