Hibiscus empowers and champions the rights of marginalised Foreign National, Black, Minority Ethnic and Refugee women in prison and the community, those in detention and families facing removal.
With over 30 years’ experience we provide advocacy, support and specialist services to reduce isolation, facilitate rehabilitation and provide effective advocacy within the criminal justice and immigration systems. We empower our clients to make informed choices and positive changes to their situation. We support over 1,000 clients from over 120 countries each year.
As some long-standing Trustees come to the end of their terms, we are looking for new Trustees that will play a vital role in inspiring and supporting us to continue to build upon our strong reputation and ensure our crucial and much needed support services are delivered to those most in need.
We are looking to recruit three Trustees who bring a strategic insight in one or more of the following areas:
- Fundraising – Experience of statutory fundraising and grants/trusts.
- Legal – Knowledge of immigration/human rights/family law/legal aid.
- Communications/Marketing – Communications experience of supporting nuanced messaging to different audiences, extending our reach and understanding reputational risk.
- Policy – Understanding how to influence and achieve policy change at government level.
- Human Resources/Organisational Development
Hibiscus is committed to achieve greater diversity in its Board and actively encourages applications from Foreign Nationals and Black, Minority Ethnic and Refugee individuals. We also welcome applications from individuals who bring an empathy, knowledge or understanding of working with marginalised women in numerous settings including the criminal justice system, in community, in court, and in detention. We also offer training and support to individuals who have not been Trustees before.
