What will you be doing?

At Hope for the Future, we believe in the power of democratic engagement in calling for action on climate change and the nature crisis. We do this by empowering local communities with the skills and tools they need to engage effectively with their MPs and other elected representatives. We have a proven record of effectively engaging MPs and other local politicians across party lines, leading to action both in Parliament, and at local level. As a Treasurer or Trustee with us, you'll play a pivotal role in leading our mission to foster collaboration between UK communities and politicians for a healthier planet. Hope for the Future, a dynamic climate communications charity, empowers citizens nationwide to build constructive relationships with policymakers, transcending divisive narratives which currently hinder progress. We’re looking for candidates who will not only bring a commitment to climate action, but also a finesse for accountability, sustainability, and regulatory compliance. Incoming trustees will receive a full induction, so if you’ve never been on a board before, don’t let that put you off applying. We’re seeking diverse expertise to enrich our board. We’re particularly looking for trustees with skills in finance, HR, fundraising and marketing, all of which will be invaluable in shaping our strategy and impact.

What difference will you make?

Our track record speaks volumes: from influencing Parliament to catalyzing local action, our engagement spans party lines and drives tangible change. Take the lead in our vital work and make a lasting difference. Apply now and help shape a future where hope prevails over crisis. Trustees at Hope for the Future have been instrumental to the organisation’s continuing success, and will continue to be so in the future.  The charity has recently undergone a restructure, and has consolidated its activities. The successful candidate can expect a challenging but stimulating and rewarding role in the heart of a dynamic and fast-paced organisation. We place a high value on innovation and are results driven. Our new trustee will play a proactive role in steering our growth and contribute to the effective delivery against our 2023-2025 Strategy.
