Recruiter: Green Park
Location: London (Central), London (Greater)
Salary: Unremunerated
Posted: 25 Sep 2020

Position/Level: Board

The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation is one of the UK’s largest, most exciting, impact-focused funders. In addition to providing grants and social investment to brilliant organisations who share their goals, the Foundation wants to play a more active role themselves by brokering alliances, using their influence and removing barriers.

They recently evolved a new strategy, prioritising their vision for an improved natural world, a fairer future and creative, confident communities, and ensuring that diversity, equity and inclusion are embedded into everything it does and funds. The Foundation’s Trustees play a vital role in ensuring that the strategy is clear and that its goals are in line with its vision.

This is a particularly interesting time to get involved in this exciting work. We are keen to speak to people who have this sort of experience in their background:

  • A strong appreciation of the context and challenges of people and communities impacted by structural inequalities.
  • Cross-sector credibility and networks, including a strong understanding of the not-for-profit sector (working in the sector or as a trustee)
  • A track record in driving diversity in an organisation you’ve been involved with
  • Enthusiasm, judgement, intellectual curiosity and a natural instinct to engage with people from a broad range of backgrounds and interests are all important
  • Expertise and networks in one or more of the following areas is helpful:
  • Environment
  • Social justice
  • Community or voluntary sector
  • Local and national government
