Members of long-standing protest rights groups have come together to form the Article 11 Trust. Together with our partners and allies in the movement, The Article 11 Trust works to drive forward priority research and education projects, support grassroots groups to secure much-needed charitable funding, and raise public awareness around protest rights issues.
Join our team!
We are looking for at least three volunteer Trustees to join the Article 11 board for at least the next two years as we develop and grow the organisation.
Who we are looking for
Trustees will ideally be familiar with police monitoring, grassroots activism and community work but we also encourage applications from those with transferrable or specialist skills but who lack direct experience of this field. Most importantly, we are looking for passionate people who want to work with grassroots activists to make a tangible difference on a national level.
The Article 11 Trust is committed to developing a diverse and inclusive team. We strongly encourage applications from members of marginalised groups, especially those who have experience of their right to protest and being attacked. You can find our inclusivity statement in the application pack.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate:
- Knowledge of the general area of work of the Article 11 Trust
- Commitment to the Article 11 Trust and our values
- Ability to devote the necessary time and effort
- Comfortable working autonomously
- Ability to think creatively and strategically
- Ability to work effectively as a member of a team.
- Acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship. (Training can be provided to deepen understanding)
We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants with any of the following skills:
- Movement building and networking
- Internal policy and charity law compliance
- Fundraising and grant applications
- Radical education and research
- Administration and logistics
