Job description

At Stonewall, our vision is for a world where everyone, everywhere can be themselves. We work to ensure acceptance without exception, so that lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people around the world can participate fully in society and enjoy lives free from discrimination. We work to do this in a way that is aligned to our values.

Stonewall has achieved many great things since we were founded in 1989, from securing legislation which allowed same-sex couples to marry, to the repeal of Section 28.

But today, over thirty years later, our work feels more vital than ever. Our research shows that life for many LGBT people is still tough - hate crime and discrimination remain commonplace at home, work, school, and in public. We also know that COVID-19 is having a particularly acute impact on LGBT people, many of whom have found themselves trapped in hostile home environments or cut off from support networks.

But there remains much to do and our Board is working to help steer the direction of Stonewall, ensure it is fit and able to meet new challenges including the current pandemic and support our new senior executive team as we build our new strategy

 

Trustee Treasurer

Unremunerated

 

We are seeking a Treasurer, who will play a key and central role on the Board scrutinising and supporting the Executive on its finances. For this role, a qualified finance professional, with skills and experience in accountancy, audit and strategic financial management will be essential with the right level of motivation and commitment to join the Board.

Most important, the successful candidate will be able to embody and model Stonewall's values and behaviours - able to demonstrate understanding of both privilege and intersectionality and the challenges that face the identities and communities that Stonewall supports.

We are committed to ensuring we have a range of diverse experience on the Board. This enables us to benefit on the Board from the very diversity that we seek to achieve in society.
