Birmingham LGBT Board of Trustees are Recruiting a New Trustee


Birmingham LGBT is seeking to recruit a trustee with HR experience

Birmingham LGBT is a dynamic award winning charity which delivers services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands.

Our vision is a vibrant, diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community in Birmingham, in which individuals can realise their full potential and have equal access to what the city has to offer.

The charity has been through a rapid period of organisational growth, opening the country’s first LGBT health and wellbeing centre in 2013 and embedding new sexual health services in 2015.

We are currently seeking to appoint a trustee (voluntary) with HR experience at an appropriate level. Please note that the charity contracts an HR provider for day to day HR support and we are looking for an experienced and senior candidate, ideally with board experience.
