Fawcett Society Jobs

Trustee Vacancies

Committed to gender equality? Want to speed up the pace of change?
Get involved in the UK’s leading feminist campaigning charity…

In our 150th year the Fawcett Society is looking for up to 3 new trustees to join the board and steer the charity through rapid growth towards achieving our vision of a society in which the choices you can make and the control you have over your life are no longer determined by your gender.

We are looking for board-experienced professionals with strong governance skills. An entrepreneurial background with experience in IT or retail/ merchandising would be a bonus, as would research expertise, and we’re also looking for a trustee with company secretary experience to take on the role of Honorary Secretary.

The Fawcett Society actively promotes diversity in employment and welcomes applications from women, men and all parts of the community.

Closing date: Friday 10th June 2016.

Interviews will take place on 27th June. Shortlisted candidates will be informed by Friday 17th June.

To discuss this opportunity informally please contact our Chair, Belinda Phipps: chair@fawcettsociety.org.uk
