We are seeking a new Fundraising Trustee who has experience in all aspects of fundraising and partnership. We welcome candidates wishing to gain their first experience as a Trustee.

This is an unremunerated, voluntary appointment so no salary or fees are payable, although out of pocket expenses will be paid.

The time commitment is approximately one day per month as Trustees are expected to attend six Board meetings per year (divided between London with two in Sheffield where the charity is based). Meetings are split between midweek and Saturdays. This includes an AGM and a strategy day.

About us

We are the only national charity specialising in tinnitus support and our vision is a world where no one suffers from tinnitus. We support over 1 million people a year with tinnitus – via a website, helpline, support group network, leaflets and other touchpoints. We also fund research to find a cure.

Currently around one in eight people in the UK experience tinnitus.

With current revenues of over £1m and a small staff team based in Sheffield, we have ambitious plans to shape future research into tinnitus and ensure everyone knows what tinnitus is, what to do about it and how to prevent it.

Our goal is to achieve a diversified approach to fundraising, generating voluntary income from individual donors, fundraisers, companies, trusts and foundations and from statutory bodies.
