Job Description

The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies is an independent educational charity that advances public understanding of crime and criminal justice. Through partnership and coalition-building, advocacy and research, we work to inspire social justice solutions to the problems society faces, so that many responses that criminalise and punish are no longer required.

We are recruiting for new Trustees to help steer the organisation in the next stage of its development.

We would be particularly interested in recruiting Trustees with knowledge and expertise in the following areas:

  • Human resources
  • Fundraising and/or grant-giving trusts and foundations
  • Marketing and PR
  • Experience of criminal justice as criminalised and/or convicted person, or family member or close friend

Trustee roles are voluntary and unpaid positions, which come with the responsibility to ensure the Centre’s legal and financial sustainability. The Board meet four times a year and hold a strategy day with staff once a year at our offices in Vauxhall, London.

Trustees and are expected, among other things, to ensure that:

  • The Centre carries out its purpose for the public benefit.
  • The Centre complies with its governing document and the law
  • All Trustees act in the best interests of the Centre
  • The Centre is accountable
  • The Centre's resources are managed responsibily
  • All Trustees act with reasonable care and skill
