Chair of the Board of Trustees

Equally Ours is looking for a new Chair

Equally Ours is the UK charity that brings together people and organisations working across equality, human rights and social justice to make a reality of these in everyone's lives. We join up research, policy and communications to shift public opinion and policy in positive and powerful ways.

We believe that a good and strong society is a just and inclusive one. One where we are free from harm and can all contribute and flourish, whoever we are and whatever we do or don't have. A society that is equally ours.

We are looking for a fantastic chair with relevant leadership skills and experience. It's an exciting opportunity in challenging times. We're an ambitious charity, looking to develop a ten-year strategy, so we're looking for someone who is strategic and can use their skills and knowledge to help us grow and keep increasing our impact in the longer term.

Compassionate and with a generous-spirited world view, you will have the ability to see the big picture and to think ahead. Understanding of the importance of working from a pan-equality and human rights perspective is also crucial.

We're a small charity, so the chair will need to work closely with the Chief Executive. The board is professional and friendly. Quarterly meetings and the AGM are held during business hours. The term of office is 3 years, renewable.

The time commitment is likely to be 1 to 2 days a month.

As with all trustees, this is a voluntary role. Our office and remote set-up are accessible and we are happy to make any further reasonable adjustments. We can pay reasonable travel expenses.

To apply

Please send a statement of 2 pages of A4 setting out why you would like to be the chair and how you meet the requirements of the role and person specification, and your CV (including two referees) to Kamille Leon, Office and Resources Manager, by noon on 11 June. If you have any access requirements please let Kamille know.

If you would like an informal conversation before applying, please contact Ali Harris, Chief Executive,

Interviews will be held by zoom on the morning of 30 June (morning) and 1 July (morning).
