HOPE not hate Charitable Trust (HNHCT) is the UK’s leading charity challenging far right hate and building hopeful alternatives for communities and individuals.

HOPE not hate Charitable Trust that works to raise funds and provide grants to organisations whose activities further its charitable objectives. It is regulated by the Charity Commission and registered with Companies House.

We are now looking for 2-3 additional Trustees to join our Board, including a Chair of Trustees. We are keen to hear from candidates who share our passion and vision; who can reflect the diversity of the communities we work with; and who can apply their skills and expertise to help us reach our goals.

As an HNHCT Trustee, you will be taking on a highly valued and critical role at the charity, advising the CEO and Senior Leadership Team on the strategic vision, assessing financial health and taking overall responsibility for our governance to ensure we deliver our charitable objectives.

Roles we are currently seeking to fill:

Chair of Trustees + one or two further new Trustees

At this time, we are looking for a range of skills and are particularly interested in candidates who can bring financial management skills to the board, helping to guide and support the charity’s operational finances. We are also looking for Trustees who brings experience in fundraising and networking. It is not essential to have sat on a board before. In fact, we actively encourage those who are passionate about our work and will bring new perspectives.

We welcome applicants from all communities, backgrounds and geographies in order that we reflect the diverse nature of the people we serve and who support us. We particularly encourage women and people from minority communities to apply for these roles, as these groups are underrepresented at this level.

The Role of an HNHCT Trustee

This is a voluntary role requiring attendance at four board meetings a year, time to scrutinise papers, and occasional board or staff retreats to discuss strategy. While meetings are currently virtual, we hope that in the future we will be able to meet in person at least twice a year in London.
