Trustee Vacancy

Deadline for applications: 9am on Monday 29 April 2024

This is a voluntary (unpaid) Trustee position, although expenses are available.

Debt Justice is looking for new Trustees to join our board and help strengthen our work to challenge poverty and inequality caused by unjust debt. In solidarity with global allies, we actively challenge the way that debt is used to sustain colonialism and exploitation in the global economy.  At the same time, we use a community organising approach to build the collective power of people with lived experience of debt in local communities across the UK. Our local groups bring people on the frontlines of economic injustice together to lead campaigns and win systemic change to tackle the household debt crisis.

As a Trustee you will play a key role in helping us fulfil our mission. You will also benefit from:

  • Opportunities to make strategic decisions and develop new skills
  • The chance to support an economic justice organisation campaigning in solidarity with people affected by debt in local communities and in the global south.
  • Induction and training to help you in your role as Trustee, including a nominated trustee-buddy to provide peer-support 

We are committed to equity, justice, diversity and inclusion across our work and this includes taking measures to support your application and your ability to participate in board meetings, including but not limited to:

  • Any travel or childcare costs reimbursed
  • The option of joining board meetings remotely
  • Discussing your accessibility needs and making reasonable adjustments as needed

Experience of being a Trustee is not essential – if you are interested in becoming a Trustee for the first time, we’d be happy to talk to you about what it involves to help you make up your mind.
