UK Feminista is looking for people committed to feminism and women’s equality to join our volunteer board of directors.
We were founded in 2010 to support individuals and organisations to take action and create lasting change for equality between women and men. We are currently in an exciting period of change, with a new Director at the helm, and several board members having recently stepped down, so we are looking for new perspectives and voices to help steer the organisation into the next chapter.
Our board members play a key role in supporting UK Feminista’s current areas of work: tackling sexism in schools and combatting commercial sexual exploitation.
Location: London (Hybrid)
Time commitment: Minimum 4 board meetings a year
We welcome applications from people from all backgrounds, and do not require previous board experience.
As a board member, you will:
– Oversee financial stability and planning, including support on fundraising
– Offer expertise and feedback about organisational strategy, structure and objectives
– Ensure good governance, including appropriate safeguarding and HR policies
We are particularly interested in recruiting board members with expertise in fundraising and working with the media.
Level of commitment
The role involves 4 board meetings a year minimum (currently held on zoom), with reading and preparation beforehand. There are also opportunities to get involved with sub-committees and project work.
We plan to hold one in-person away day in London this year.
UK Feminista is a campaign group which is recognised as a charity for tax purposes but is run as a business limited by guarantee. No one on the board is personally liable.
How to apply
Please send a CV, two referees and a covering letter about why you are interested in becoming a board member for UK Feminista to email@example.com.

About UK Feminista
UK Feminista was founded in 2010 to support individuals and organisations to take action and create lasting change for equality between women and men. Our vision is of a society in which women live free from sexism and enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women. We run campaigns, conduct research, formulate policy and deliver training and organisational support.
Our current two main areas of focus are:
Tackling sexism in schools
Combatting sexual exploitation
UK Feminista works with survivors, policy makers and practitioners to combat commercial sexual exploitation. We provide the Secretariat for the UK Parliament’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Commercial Sexual Exploitation. We also provide the Secretariat for A Model For Scotland.
