The Commonwealth Equality Network (TCEN) is the first civil society network to sustainably advocate on behalf of LGBT+ people in the Commonwealth. Since its foundation in 2013, the network’s trajectory has been one of increasing profile, effectiveness, and influence: TCEN members have actively participated in Commonwealth spaces to raise the profile and mainstream the discussion of LGBT+ people and their rights and concerns, and to engage with national-level decision-makers and policymakers on these topics. The network currently comprises over 65 member organisations representing 47 Commonwealth countries drawn from all regions. Earlier this year, a new nine-member Management Committee was inaugurated. This Committee – with the support of the Secretariat and in consultation with the wider membership – will guide TCEN towards becoming an even more strategic, efficient and influential transnational group of LGBT+ human rights defenders and advocates.
Kaleidoscope Trust is a founding member of TCEN and hosts the network’s Secretariat. Established in 2011, Kaleidoscope Trust works to uphold the human rights LGBT+ people in countries around the world where they are discriminated against or marginalised due to their sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression. We work with British and international institutions and partners to support the work of LGBT+ activists to bring about positive legislative, policy and social change for LGBT+ people, principally through our evidence-based UK and international advocacy, our strategic communications and our high-impact programmes and partnerships.
In addition to hosting the Secretariat, Kaleidoscope Trust is an individual member organisation of the network. In this capacity, we have built and maintained strategic relationships with UK-based Commonwealth stakeholders and institutions and have raised considerable funding to support the network’s collective work. A significant result of these efforts was our campaign to have TCEN accredited to the Commonwealth; in June 2017, TCEN became the first LGBT+ focused group to ever receive this status which recognises commitment to the values and principles of the Commonwealth as laid out in its Charter. We also contributed to influencing former British Prime Minister Theresa May to express her deep regret for the legacy of discrimination and violence that colonial-era legislation continues to inflict on people across the Commonwealth, at the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). Most recently, in order to continue building on this foundation, we supported TCEN partners to participate at the CHOGM in Kigali, Rwanda, this past June.
This is an exciting opportunity for a committed, strategically-minded and dynamic individual to lead the Secretariat of an ambitious, growing transnational network of LGBT+ civil society organisations.
This new, full-time position will be housed at Kaleidoscope Trust, in London, within a newly enlarged Secretariat team. The Head of TCEN Secretariat will report directly to the Chair of the network’s Management Committee and the Kaleidoscope Trust Deputy Director. They will line manage a TCEN Secretariat Operations Manager, who in turn will line manage a TCEN Secretariat Officer. All three roles are funded through grants that Kaleidoscope Trust has secured to support and strengthen TCEN’s operations and implementation of its collective advocacy. The post-holder will also participate as a part of Kaleidoscope Trust’s Senior Management Team.
The Head of Secretariat joins TCEN at a critical time, as the network continues to consolidate progress and build momentum for its long-term development and growth. This role offers an incredible opportunity to actively participate in and contribute to building up a diverse network of organisations as they strengthen their mutual support and learning and enhance their collective advocacy efforts to raise the profile of LGBT+ priorities in Commonwealth spaces, in order to achieve long-lasting, systemic change for LGBT+ people.
The ideal candidate will be an excellent communicator and convener who knows how to bring the best out of diverse membership (composed of organisations of varying sizes, capacities, and mandates). They will be an outstanding strategic thinker who can maintain a strong understanding of and help lead implementation of a broad, multi-disciplinary work plan. The candidate will be someone who enjoys solving the complex issues that arise in a global network and should bring solid experience in human rights or international development to bear in this endeavour.
In the implementation of their duties, the post-holder will have the opportunity to work very closely with a variety of stakeholders, including the network’s Management Committee and member organisations; Kaleidoscope Trust’s executive leadership and team members leading on other work streams; other civil society partners and networks; and some decision- and policymakers. The post-holder will be dedicated to providing advice, guidance and assistance to the network, its members and governing bodies in order to ensure that TCEN is effectively administered, strategically managed and provided with the support it requires to successfully implement its strategic goals and policy priorities.

- Line manage and guide the professional development of the TCEN Secretariat Operations Manager.
- Nurture and lead a positive, supportive and productive culture and working environment for the team members of the TCEN Secretariat, which includes a full-time TCEN Secretariat Operations Manager and a part-time TCEN Secretariat Officer.

- Develop and monitor an annual schedule of work for the Secretariat, Management Committee and membership to deliver TCEN’s strategy and related activity plan, once finalised.
- Ensure systems for monitoring progress on activity implementation are in place and, where activities are Kaleidoscope Trust grant-funded, reported on to the relevant Kaleidoscope Trust teams in accordance with requirements.
- In conjunction with the Management Committee, oversee regular network risk assessments and reviews, and ensure critical issues are appropriately escalated as they emerge, suggesting and implementing mitigation strategies to remedy risks.
- With guidance from the Management Committee and in partnership with TCEN members, identify collaboration and partnership opportunities for the network’s members with global and regional stakeholders and allies as appropriate in support of the TCEN strategy, and ensure relevant outcomes are fed into grant development and/or implementation.

NHS Providers is the membership organisation for the NHS hospital, mental health, community and ambulance services that treat patients and service users in the NHS. We help those NHS foundation trusts and trusts to deliver high-quality, patient-focused care by enabling them to learn from each other, acting as their public voice and helping shape the system in which they operate. NHS Providers has all trusts in voluntary membership, collectively accounting for £104bn of annual expenditure and employing more than one million staff.
The purpose of this role is to influence the national policy agenda on matters relating to ambulance services (including the urgent and emergency care pathway, 999, NHS 111, and patient transport services) and operational performance (including access standards, progress against national targets, planning and prioritisation) on behalf of our membership of trusts.
This role is an exciting opportunity to support trust leaders as they respond to a challenging and changing environment. This is a diverse role, which will require the postholder to be flexible, adapt to a rapidly changing external landscape, responsively manage a wide-ranging portfolio, and contribute to work across the policy team including system working, finance and workforce.
