LGBT Foundation is a Disability Confident Committed Employer and is an Investors in People accredited organisation. We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, faith and religion, disability and age, but, as ethnic minority groups, members of the trans community and religious and faith groups are currently under-represented across the organisation, we would encourage applications from members of these groups. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
GM LGBTQ+ Advisory Panel Member
We are looking for passionate individuals with links to Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ communities to join the GM LGBTQ+ Advisory Panel!
The Panel will be made up of individuals representing Greater Manchester’s LGBTQ+ communities across its 10 districts. We particularly encourage applications from trans and non-binary people; LGBTQ+ women, people of colour (PoC), and disabled people; and others with lived experience of multiple marginalisation to ensure that the Panel is representative of the full diversity of our communities.
You do not need to have any specific qualifications or professional experience.
As a member of the Panel, you will:
- Be able to work collaboratively with people from different backgrounds and different levels of knowledge
- Be committed to intersectionality, solidarity, and uplifting those who are most marginalised
- Be committed to accountability, transparency, and speaking up for the needs of LGBTQ+ people
- Commit a minimum of 9 half days to the work of the Panel annually, including attending monthly meetings
This is a voluntary role, but you will be reimbursed for travel and other reasonable expenses. We are also keen to develop the skills or Panel members, so we will provide free access to training and other development opportunities.
