Group 931

People United is recruiting up to four new Trustees to help steer the charity’s strategic direction and provide guidance, challenge and support as we move into the next ambitious stage of our journey.

We’re interested in hearing from people who will bring energy, new perspectives and different lived experiences to the organisation, people who share our values and our passion for arts and creativity, and most importantly, people who have an active determination to harness kindness as a powerful agent for change.

You might have previous experience of being a trustee or you might not – either way you’ll be well supported by both the team and a group of friendly, highly engaged trustees who have a strong and positive relationship with each other and with the People United officer team.

While we are based in Kent, we are keen to hear from individuals who are interested in becoming a Trustee from across the UK. Our Board meetings are held either virtually or in central London, with the occasional meeting/away day taking place in Canterbury.

If you think this might be you, please have a read of our recruitment pack which contains more information – including how to apply – and then get in touch. The deadline for application is Monday 9th August at 5pm. We can’t wait to meet you!


People United is committed to equality of opportunity and encourages applications from individuals underrepresented both in the arts sector and within our team and board. To support this, candidates who attend an interview will also be offered the opportunity to meet another team member and/or trustee to gain insight into the organisational culture, and as an opportunity to ask questions outside of the interview.

To support the widest range of people in applying, including Disabled and neurodiverse candidates, we are committed to ensuring that:
