The BTA is looking for a Trustee with knowledge of fundraising

The British Tinnitus Association’s vision is 'a world where no one suffers from tinnitus'. Through 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.

We are currently recruiting for a trustee with knowledge of fundraising. Don’t worry, we’re not expecting you to bring in the funds or lots of contacts – there’s a dedicated staff Fundraising Team to do that! What we do want is someone who can support and offer guidance to the Board on the overall fundraising strategy and ambition of the charity. To support and challenge the staff team and be that link to enable Trustees to have more effective oversight of fundraising within the BTA. This expertise may have been built via work or voluntary experience.

Strategic cycle

We have just renewed our strategy, setting ambitious targets over the next 5 years. We are looking for an enthusiastic trustee who can support our vision and help us achieve it. If you would like to find out more about the BTA, please explore our website.


There are six Trustee meetings a year. There are four quarterly meetings, alongside the annual conference (including the AGM) and a strategy meeting. Meetings are currently held in London and Sheffield. Half of the meetings are held mid-week and half on Saturdays. Trustees are also expected to serve on one sub-committee. Out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.
