Solicitors' Charity
Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

We’ve been working at the heart of the profession since 1858. We’re here for solicitors when times get tough. The Solicitors’ Charity has been supporting solicitors in times of need or crisis since 1858. When times are hard, we provide financial assistance and access to emotional and practical support to help people get back on track. We aim to make a permanent impact and positive change to the lives of the people who ask us for help.


Now is an exciting time to join the Board; mid-way through a refresh of our strategy, our focus is primarily on how we can increase our reach and raise our profile further to support significantly more solicitors, improving their lives, both professionally and personally, at times of need. As a new trustee you will have a significant opportunity to really help shape our future direction and impact.

We are currently looking for up to four new trustees who are, or have been, solicitors, one of whom can be a generalist, and are particularly interested in hearing from candidates with specialisms in charity law, safeguarding, cyber security or marketing to help strengthen the Board. We actively seek to broaden the diversity of our Board in all aspects to enrich our collective decision-making and governance and welcome applications from candidates who do not have to have previous trustee experience, but who share our values and demonstrate strategic thinking with outstanding communication skills and the ability to probe and appropriately challenge both the Executive and Board colleagues, deploying a collaborative approach and sound judgement.

If this sounds like an opportunity you would like to explore further, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
