Trustee

We’re delighted to open up two roles for new trustees, one with charity finance experience, and one with experience of influencing Central Government. This is a really exciting time for Alcohol Change UK. In March 2024 we approved a major new five year strategy that will see us invest significantly from our reserves, to drive growth in both our income and our impact.

Could you help guide us through this ambitious period?

Who we are looking for

We do not require previous experience of being a charity trustee. Everyone starts somewhere. We always welcome applications from candidates with first hand experience of alcohol harm; and many of our current trustees have that experience.

Alcohol harm affects everyone in society, but it doesn’t affect everyone the same, so it is essential that our board has a good diversity of perspectives. We particularly welcome applications from people from working class backgrounds and minoritised racial communities*.

* Our approach to trustee recruitment is consistent with Government guidance on the careful and lawful use of positive action.
