We are now looking to recruit a new Trustees to continue to develop the organisation in line with our strategy.  We are in challenging times, demands for services are increasing and all forecasts indicate this will continue, public sector funds are continually under pressure so need to diversify our income is a must. There are greater pressures for organisations to evidence impact, outcomes and value for money

Switchboard strives to achieve diversity and inclusion at all levels throughout the organisation, and to ensure we are working with and for all sections of our LGBTQ communities.

We particularly welcome applications from anyone who identifies as QTIPOC or LGBTQ BAMER, trans and non-binary people, trans women of colour, intersex people, refugees, migrants or asylum seekers, people of faith, older people and disabled people as these groups are currently under-represented on our Trustee board. 


Skills

We are looking for people with strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to give time and commitment to being a trustee. We would especially welcome individuals with previous experience of human resources, fundraising, the voluntary and community sector or being a trustee previously. Trustees aren’t paid, but it’s a rewarding experience and you can easily make an impact.
