Who SHOULD APPLY:

We are seeking people of all genders, ages, backgrounds, and abilities who are keen to help us shape the future of our movement, network, and organisation. This opportunity is unique as the scope of our work continues to grow and Advisory Board members will be involved in providing guidance on pioneering and developing it. 

 

We recognise that feminist spaces and opportunities are often full of white, middle class women. We are looking for people of all backgrounds with voices that are underrepresented in this sector, specifically people of colour, gender non conforming individuals, men, and trans people.

 

Currently, we are only accepting applications from individuals eighteen years of age or older.

How to apply_

We use a blind recruitment process so please do not send us your CV. If you are interested in this role, please fill in the form below by 9am on March 28th.

We will run (virtual) interviews with shortlisted candidates on April 22nd. The first Advisory Board meeting will take place in early May. If you have any questions or require any adjustments to complete this form or throughout the interview process, please send us an email with your needs at hello@feministsof.com so we can assist.

Feminists of_ is fully committed to equality of opportunity and diversity to ensure that we reflect the full breadth of people in this movement. It's vital for our Advisory Board to represent diversity of thought, lived experience and wide social economics as it impacts our decision making.  

 

We recognise that our team does not currently reflect a diverse range of life-experiences and perspectives. Currently, people from Black communities, people from minority ethnic communities, people who identify as men or non-binary, and people who have a disability are underrepresented in our organisation. We would therefore particularly welcome applications from these groups. Feminists of_ is an equal opportunities organisation and we actively encourage volunteer applicants from people of all backgrounds. We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our work.

 

Note: Applicants will receive equal treatment regardless of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation (Protected Characteristics). To ensure this, we use a blind recruitment process.
