Why Join Our Board?

We’re an established charity with a reputation for high quality services and a history of innovation. Despite only having a small team, each year, we increase the number of people we work with, providing outstanding anti-bullying and well-being workshops, training and youth engagement programmes. We are one of the most ambitious anti-bullying charities in the UK, have held the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard since 2009 and have also won several awards for our work.

The Board of Trustees plays an integral role in the effective running of our charity and provides effective governance for BulliesOut to ensure progress is continually made on achieving our vision and mission. The charity sectors are facing exceptional challenges so our Trustee roles are an opportunity to play an important part in driving organisational development and securing our long-term future.

We are growing our Board of Trustees and we would like to appoint a Chair, and new Trustees, from diverse backgrounds, with varied skills and experiences, to join our Board to help us shape our charity’s future.

We are looking for individuals who will be committed to our vision and mission. Our Trustees will be able to think strategically and practically about the challenges and opportunities the organisation may face, whilst also providing leadership, guidance and support. Like so much in life, if it is worth doing, it is worth doing well, and putting time and commitment into your role as a Trustee is so much more rewarding than never truly engaging with the Trustee role and aspirations of the organisation. Working at a high-level takes discipline and time.

Previous Board experience is not necessary, but an understanding of, or a willingness to train in, the principles of good governance in the charity sector is essential.

The Chair will be someone who is able to lead and motivate and make key decisions in terms of the expansion of the charity. They will be committed and passionate about the Charity’s work, support and work alongside the CEO and use their own skills, knowledge and experience to help the Board reach sound decisions.

About You

We are looking for Trustees that share our vision to empower and inspire children young people and adults to overcome bullying behaviour, recognise their self-worth and achieve their full potential. While not a requirement, we would particularly welcome applicants with experience of:

  • Working with children and / or young people
  • Finance or Accountancy
  • Business Management
  • Marketing
  • Fundraising
  • Community Engagement

Most importantly we are seeking Trustees who are passionate and committed to the role.


Trustee meetings are currently held bi-monthly by zoom (usually on a Tuesday evening), with a face-to-face meeting each quarter (subject to change), and there will be the opportunity through the year to engage with the amazing BulliesOut team to support their work.

Trustees may occasionally meet with staff in sub-groups to work on specific topics as and when needed, such as our Finance Sub-group.

Trustees have a tenure of three years, with an option to remain on board for another term.

These are voluntary, unremunerated roles. Reasonable out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

To Apply

Please submit an application form and along with your CV and covering letter, send it to the email or postal address on the form.

Need to talk?

If you are being bullied or are concerned about someone who is, you can receive help and support from one of our trained Mentors through our e-mentoring service.

If you would like a Mentor to email you, please contact: mentorsonline@bulliesout.com

If you would rather speak to someone over the telephone, you can call Childline on: 0800 1111

For any community-related issues, such as anti-social behaviour, we would suggest contacting your landlord, the local police or your local environmental health department (where applicable), as we are unable to deal with these types of complaints.
