Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

Demos is a cross-party think tank founded in 1993 with the aim of bringing people into the public policy process and to develop solutions in a range of areas, from education and skills to technology, tax and housing. We are a champion of people, ideas, and democracy. We bridge divides. We listen and we understand. We are practical about the problems we face, but we are endlessly optimistic and ambitious about our capacity, together, to overcome them.

The Role

We are planning to expand and diversify our board further and are particularly interested in individuals with experience and connections in areas where we may not previously have been strong.

The key areas of experience we would like to see on the board include:

  • Significant experience of fundraising from foundations (large and small) and working with family offices;
  • Real depth and experience in policymaking;
  • Experience of influencing major stakeholders: politicians, business leaders, trade unions, civil society organisations, opinion formers and journalists.

Our Board is exceptionally capable and committed. You will be a confident, positive contributor, team player and ambassador for Demos with strategic acumen, great communication and listening skills, and high capacity for self- reflection.
