We are looking for Trustees with interesting and unique backgrounds

We’re looking for people from a diverse background to join us as a trustee and help us tackle homelessness as we head into our 50th year.


We want to hear from people whose backgrounds are diverse and interesting and who can help us identify new ways of thinking about homelessness as we head into a special year. We want people from a wide range of networks, communities and backgrounds.

We are looking for Trustees who are as committed as we are about tackling social disadvantage and supporting people to realise their full potential. To enhance our current Board of Trustees and continue to develop our governance, we are looking for individuals with a breadth of key skills, knowledge and experience in the public or private sector, but particularly in the following areas:

    • housing
    • property
    • environmental issues
    • fundraising
    • medical
    • finance

Current Trustees describe their role within SSJ as enriching and rewarding.  In exchange for their time and commitment, new Trustees can expect to:

• Make a valued contribution to the charity sector
• Acquire new insights, broaden their experience and meet new people
• Contribute to the development of others through the sharing of skills and experience
