Join our Board of Trustees

Applications are now closed. Thank you for your interest.


Are you passionate about supporting those affected by endometriosis? Do you have the skills to help strengthen our organisation and bring about change for the endometriosis community? If so, please apply to join our Board of Trustees.

With four current Trustees soon to reach their maximum 6-year length of service, we are looking for four new Trustees with relevant skills and experience to join our friendly, dynamic, experienced and effective board of 11 trustees. Trustees are recruited based on their skills and experience, and we are looking for Trustees with experience of one or more of the following:

  • Personal or professional experience of diversity and inclusion issues.
  • Marketing and digital marketing
  • Communications and social media
  • Campaigning and achieving change
  • Experience of working in Primary Care
  • Charity finance experience
  • Currently living in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales

We look favourably on applications from those in the endometriosis community although this is not essential. Whilst personal experience of living with, or having a close family member with, endometriosis, is vital on our Board we already have Trustees with first hand lived experience and new trustees do not need to have endometriosis. We are also looking for a GP to join the Board as a Trustee. Previous Trustee experience is not necessary, training and induction will be provided.

We have grown significantly over the past three years and are committed to expanding our work to reach everyone and anyone who may need our help. How we use our knowledge, insight and expertise to influence change at all levels and across all communities remains a key theme for us and as new Trustees you will be joining an ambitious board focused on achieving meaningful impact for everyone affected by endometriosis.

We aim to have a diverse and inclusive Board and welcome diverse backgrounds and lived experience. We support the accessibility requirements of our Trustees. Endometriosis UK is committed to supporting and advocating for everyone affected by endometriosis regardless of race, gender, sex, gender identity, class, sexual orientation or disability and ensuring diversity, equity and inclusion is at the heart of every aspect of our organisation.

There are 5 Board meetings per year, three held face to face on a Saturday in London and two virtually on a weekday evening. The main time commitment is attending the meetings, and reading papers in advance. On occasion, trustees may be consulted by email outside of meetings, and have the opportunity to sit on a sub-group of the Board. These are voluntary roles, expense for travel to meetings is reimbursed.

Closing date for applications: 9th May 2023
