Vacancies

Trustee: non-executive, unpaid

Friends Provident Foundation is looking for new Trustees to help guide its programmes of giving and investment, which aim to build a fair and sustainable economy in the UK. We are working toward this aim through supporting action, building knowledge, and using our endowment as a tool for change.

We are particularly seeking perspectives that may challenge orthodox views and would like to hear from people with an active interest in how the economy works and who have a drive to shape society on a practical and ethical level.

You will need to be committed to our ambitious mission of using all our assets to bring about the change we wish to see. Knowledge of economics, community organising, communications, investment, or NGO management would all be desirable. You will be willing to apply your skills and experience in quarterly Trustee meetings, share your insights, be willing to learn from those we work with as well as make a creative contribution as a Trustee. All Trustees work closely with the Foundation’s staff to achieve our objectives and you will need to commit on average one day a month to the Foundation’s business.

We wish to add to the Board from a wide pool of applicants and welcome people with investment experience, people of colour, disabled people and those from a working-class background or with experience of poverty.

If you are interested in becoming a Trustee of the Foundation but anticipate barriers to your participation, we would still like to hear from you. Please get in touch with us to discuss your situation.

Deadline for applications: 9am on Thursday 15 December 2022

Interviews: Friday 27 January 2023
