Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

We are recruiting for new Trustees to join our dedicated and active ILC Board of Trustees. ILC is the UK’s leading authority on the impact of longevity on society. We combine evidence, solutions and networks to make change happen.

What will you be doing?

ILC is the UK’s leading authority on the impact of longevity on society. We combine evidence, solutions and networks to make change happen.

That doesn’t mean we’re just about protecting the interests of older people. It doesn’t mean we’re just about promoting their needs. And it doesn’t mean we’re just about prioritising their requirements.

The impact of longevity on society isn’t just about older people: it will impact everyone.

We know the implications of demographics, today and tomorrow.

  • We know that every girl born today will have a one in four chance of living until she’s 100.
  • We know that when she starts work, she will need to save at least 20% of her earnings every year in order to afford a comfortable retirement.
  • We know that if she wants to buy her own home, she’ll probably need to wait until she’s over 35, in a relationship and working full time.

And that is where we come in.

We believe society has to adapt now so we can all enjoy the benefits of longevity, and we want a society that works for everyone, regardless of their age.

We are recruiting for new Trustees to join our dedicated and active Board of Trustees.

The ideal candidate will have an interest in our work, care about the issues and have a passion for making a difference. You will be a voice for ILC, promoting the work of the organisation.

Whilst we are interested in hearing from all interested candidates, to strengthen the existing skillset on our Board we would particularly welcome applications from those who have a strong knowledge or professional expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • IT strategies, digital development and data security
  • Legal expertise
  • UK and International influencing and engagement
  • Marketing and not-for-profit fundraising expertise
  • People management/HR expertise
  • Experience of working in financial services
  • Business to Business sales

The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 9 September 2024 with interviews being held soon after.
