Unlock is an independent award-winning charity that provides a voice and support for people with convictions who are facing stigma and obstacles because of their criminal record.

We are an innovative, creative and award-winning social action charity, seeking people with the appropriate skills, knowledge and/ or experience to help us grow and develop. You’ll need a passion for making a difference to disadvantaged people and an ability to consider and contribute towards strategic plans, decisions on finances, staffing, service design and new projects.

We are looking for people to join our board of trustees with the skills, passion, vision and influence to help Unlock meet its objectives and take the charity into the future, and would particularly value applications from people with knowledge, skills or experience in one or more of the following:

  • Fundraising/income generation 
  • Human resources/ employment law

Unlock is committed to building a diverse trustee board. We are actively seeking people who are committed to communicating the values and ethos of Unlock. Unlock is an equal opportunities organisation and committed to increasing diversity.  Applications from candidates who are BME, have a disability or who are from a less privileged background are particularly encouraged.

We warmly welcome applications from all suitably skilled people regardless of background and we are especially keen to appoint people who have themselves met with and overcome the disadvantages of having a criminal record.

The role requires regular attendance at board meetings (4 times per year, held in London), with occasional committee meetings and related work. Under charity regulation, these roles must be unremunerated, though travel expenses can be covered. To find out more and apply, please download the following:-

The closing date for applications is midday on Monday 28 October.

Interviews will be held on Wednesday 20 November at Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG.

For an informal conversation about the role, please contact: Leigh Hardy (Trustee) at leigh.hardy@landshardyconsulting.co.uk, or Zoë Veater (Chair of Trustees) at zoeveater@gmail.com.
