There is a director-shaped hole at Southall Black Sisters. Will you be the one to fill it?
Southall Black Sisters is looking for an exceptional woman with that mix of political vision and management & people skills which will ensure that the organisation retains and grows its iconic place in anti-racist, anti-fundamentalist, feminist politics, and provides an exemplary advocacy service to Black and minoritised women.
Originally set up in 1979, Southall Black Sisters has become a household name. Based in West London but with a national reach and reputation for its landmark legal interventions, its contributions to changes in policy through targeted campaigns and its unique approach to casework and advocacy have brought hope and freedom to countless women who have walked through its doors.
In 1983, we set up a not-for-profit advice, campaigning, resource, and advocacy centre for Black and minoritised women, defending women’s rights and freedoms, with a particular focus on challenging all forms of violence against women, especially in relation to South Asian women. We have been in the forefront of the fight to support migrant women whose escape from domestic violence is complicated by harsh immigration rules and the absence of state benefits.
Be prepared to challenge the state, community leaders, and all patriarchal and racist institutions in support of the women who come to our centre. You should bring substantial experience in a management role, including 5 years at a senior level. You should be committed to our values and have the experience and confidence to present our case to a range of external bodies, including the media and government. You should be able to demonstrate evidence of strategic leadership, and an ability to manage change, and inspire staff teams.
Due to the nature of our work the post is open to women only (exempt under the Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, Part 1). We particularly welcome applications from Black and minoritised women.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
We're looking for a Development Officer to become part of our fundraising team to help grow our income and develop the work of the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT). As a small charity doing big things to support the people, landscape and wildlife of the Dales we enjoy an excellent reputation as a 'doing' organisation which makes a real difference to people’s lives.
This role will help to develop new funding streams and support the development of projects to meet the changing charitable needs of this special area.
About Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust
Over the last 24 years we have delivered diverse and inspirational projects. Our vital work has helped to plant 1.5 million trees and secure the future of more than 750 hectares of wildflower hay meadows, creating habitats for our wildlife and combatting climate change. We’re passionate about inspiring disadvantaged groups and future generations to care for this special part of the world.
Over the next three years we will aim to sustain and grow our annual voluntary income above £1m. To achieve this, we need to look after our individual supporters, philanthropists, and corporate partners to a very high level, inspiring them to continue to make regular donations and multi-year commitments.
We need to grasp this moment in time, by further raising our great reputation to highlight our ability to help tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and connect more people with our natural and built environment.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about our work and able to build strong relationships with our supporters, including corporate partners, philanthropists and Trust and Foundations. You should be able to demonstrate experience of successful business development and/or fundraising. More important is your ability to work within our culture – which means being creative, caring, honest and enabling.

Post Title:Executive Director
Accountable to: Chair and Trustees of London Arts in Health Forum
Salary: £47,000 pro-rata
Time commitment: Part-time, three days a week.
Location: Hybrid working: a combination of office and team-working based (8, Botolph Alley, EC3R 8DR) with homeworking. The ability to travel for meetings and speaking engagements when necessary.
Access and equality:
London Arts and Health is committed to being an inclusive employer and contractor, welcoming staff and consultants from various backgrounds and all protected characteristics. We welcome and encourage applications from individuals currently underrepresented in arts and health, including disabled people and racially minoritised candidates. In compliance with the Equality Act, we offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants who meet all the essential criteria.
London Arts and Health (LAH) is a registered charity that creates and promotes opportunities for the arts to reach everyone in society – regardless of their health or personal circumstances. It has two primary focuses - creating opportunities for people experiencing health and care needs to engage with the arts and raising awareness of the health and wellbeing benefits of engaging with high-quality creative activities.
We believe that participating in the arts and offering routes to using creativity makes a crucial difference to the health and wellbeing of individuals and society. LAH is a central pillar in the fast-emerging world of arts and health. LAH has been at the forefront of this work for many years and is widely respected for its support to individual artists, patients and service users, health professionals, and the wider public. The organisation works collaboratively in everything it does, partnering with a vast range of stakeholders to increase the impact the arts can have on the health of everyone in society.
People with acknowledged health needs (mental and physical) are traditionally excluded from the arts. Yet, research increasingly indicates that engaging in creative activity has wide-ranging health and wellbeing benefits. LAH exists to challenge traditional inequalities by generating more and better arts experiences for everyone.
Over the past three years, the Charity has seen a complete overhaul with a new name, rebranding, several new websites, digital tools and a new temporary home in the middle of the City of London. We have also recruited nine temporary staff through the Kickstart scheme, significantly increasing the resource available to the Charity.
LAH is in a strong position with a solid fundraising plan and theory of change which the new Executive Director will deliver. The Charity is currently implementing many income generation plans, and a leader with an entrepreneurial outlook would fit well with the Charity.
The Charity appointed a Head of Digital in 2020, which has improved and increased our digital presence with many high-profile platforms and tools being scaled up nationally, alongside our partner, the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance. We are currently implementing a new membership programme and offering our City Arts and Health Hub space for members to work, network and exhibit. The Director will oversee this rollout to ensure the opportunity is well marketed.
Our ambitions for LAH and the wider sector are high, including new projects networks and events, an expansion of Creativity and Wellbeing Week, and a specific focus on increasing the diversity of the field of culture and health practice.
Your role will be to lead the organisation and deliver this activity, managing staff and supporting the board in achieving its strategic vision for the organisation. You will be a passionate and compelling advocate for the impact of the arts on health and wellbeing. You will be highly experienced in the arts and/or health with a proven capacity to collaborate with diverse partners. You will be great at combining strategic vision with a willingness to deliver practical solutions, and you will have a track record of implementing and delivering change.
Over the next year, we want to deliver the new strategic vision and establish permanent staff contracts, alongside delivering our core business. You will demonstrate experience and understanding of running a small charity with a small staff team to best support our goals, with outstanding partnership working and a proven track record of effective fundraising and change management.
