Trustee

Do you have some time to spare and a passion for making a difference?

We are looking for three people to join our Board of Trustees to ensure we make our vision a reality.

Z2K’s vision is that no individual in the UK should be living in poverty. We believe that adequate, secure income and housing are key to creating a more equal society where everyone has the chance of a stable and dignified life. Our committed team deliver social welfare advice and representation alongside policy influencing and campaigning in pursuit of our vision. 

It is an exciting time to join our Board as we begin to develop a new three-year strategy with the opportunity to utilise your skills and talents to contribute to shaping our future direction. Ideally, we are looking for candidates with knowledge or experience of:

  • The social welfare advice sector or policy influencing. This includes lived experience of our social security and/or housing systems.
  • Co-production and participatory processes.
  • Charity fundraising strategy development and implementation.

You do not necessarily need previous board experience. You will receive a full induction and will be supported by other Board Members and the Chief Executive in your role. We seek to increase the diversity of our board and therefore would particularly welcome applications from people with lived experience of our social security and/or housing systems, from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, people with disabilities/long term health conditions or other underrepresented backgrounds.

The board usually meets 4 to 5 times a year with 2 sub-committees which also meet quarterly. 

Please see candidate pack for more detail.

If you have any particular support needs in relation to the application or recruitment process, please email tanyasutton@z2k.org or call us on 020 7259 0801 to discuss how we can support you.
