Join Our Board

Do you have a strong commitment to helping to transform people’s lives? The Board of Trustees is an integral role to the effective running of the Charity and is to provide effective governance for BulliesOut to ensure progress is continually made on achieving the vision and mission of the Charity.

We are growing our Board of Trustees and we would like to appoint a Chair, Treasurer, and new Trustees, from diverse backgrounds, with varied skills, perspectives 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 values and share our vision that every person affected bullying matters and has access to information and support.  Our Trustees will be able to think strategically and practically about the challenges and opportunities the organisation may face, whilst also providing leadership, scrutiny and support.

Strong empathy with the experiences of people affected by this challenging behaviour is an essential requirement. 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 nand work alongside the CEO and use their own skills, knowledge and experience to help the Board reach sound decisions.

The Treasurer will support the Chief Executive, oversee the charity’s financial risk-management process and report financial health to the Board of Trustees at regular intervals. The Treasurer will also be responsible for monitoring the financial standing of the charity and updating the Board regarding cash-flow forecasting, income streams, out-going expenses and the overarching strategic management of the organisation’s financial resources. An individual with experience of charity finance is preferred.

For the Trustee roles, in addition to commitment, we are looking for people with experience in:

  • Legal matters, either as a practicing legal professional or with a strong legal background
  • Policy and Campaigning
  • PR and Media
  • Community Engagement

However, we have a range of skills and experience on the Board and if you have other skills and experience you feel might be useful to the charity please do apply.

Most importantly we are seeking trustees who are passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of those affected by bullying behaviour.

Time Commitment

Trustee meetings are held bi-monthly (usually on a Tuesday evening) and there will be the opportunity through the year to engage with the amazing BulliesOut team to support their work.

The Treasurer will also need to engage with the finance team between meetings to ensure the Board are appraised of relevant financial matters and support the finance team in their work.

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 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.
