Trustees

It Gets Better UK envisions a world where all LGBTQ+ youth are free to live equally and know their worthiness and power as individuals. We strive to tell the stories of LGBTQ+ people and to provide positive and reassuring messages to LGBTQ+ youth.

To help us meet that vision we're looking for a new trustee to join our board with a background in social media management to help us drive forward our public engagement. For a copy of the role description please click here

The It Gets Better Project was founded in 2010 in America. Since then, affiliated charities have been formed in 19 different countries, with It Gets Better UK having launched in October 2018.

We want to ensure that people are able to fully engage with our mission. Innovative thinking is at the heart of this and we are looking for a dynamic individual who will help shape the future and support the delivery of the organisation.

At this exciting time, as we are continuing to grow and scale our work, including recent grant income, we are looking to recruit a trustee with a strong background in social media management. As social media is at the centre of what we do, you'll be at the forefront of shaping our charitable work. 

It Gets Better UK believes passionately that truly inclusive organisations lead to increased social impact. It is committed to achieving greater diversity in its board, and actively encourages applications from people from Trans, Black, Asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds, and disabled people.

We are committed to supporting individuals who have not previously been trustees, and will provide suitable training for such individuals.

For an informal discussion about this role, or if you have any questions please contact our Chair of the Board Dr Alex Rhys via email.

If you would like to apply then you can find the application form here. The application deadline is 11.59pm on Sunday 24 October 2021.
