Details of Role: 

Transform Drug Policy Foundation is a global leader in developing, and advocating for, more humane drug policies. We want to recruit three additional trustees (including one Treasurer) to help drive forward our work. This is an exciting time in drug policy. Rapid changes in approach are occurring in the UK and internationally. Transform has a long history of shaping these changes and seeking to ensure that reform reduces harm, improves social justice and protects public health. Our Anyone’s Child campaign is a highly effective family-led movement that has had a significant impact here and abroad. You can find out more about our work via our website www.transformdrugs.org

Our new trustees will help ensure that that we further improve our ability to reflect the needs of those most affected by current drug policy: in particular, black and minority ethnic groups and the socially excluded. We are seeking expertise in three key areas (with overlap if appropriate):

• Social justice policy, research or campaigns

• Small, or grassroots, charity operations and funding

• Treasurer with some knowledge of accountancy within the smaller business or charity sphere

We welcome applications from all candidates with the skills and commitment to support the work of Transform. We especially welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as part of our commitment to ensuring a full diversity of experience is reflected in our work.

Closing Date: 
Monday, 2 December, 2019 - 17:00
How to Apply: 

Applicants should enclose a CV and a brief covering letter explaining why they would like to support our work and what particular skills and experience they would bring.
