Trustee Recruitment We're looking for talented Trustees to join us at The House

We want to create a community of people who are invested in creating a fair and equal society.

We believe that gaining and maintaining employment is instrumental to independence and security, and that in a society where there is disconnect, it’s important to create environments where people feel connected. So, we created an Employment Academy that’s integrated into the heart of a social business, our members’ club.

We are looking for people to join our board of Trustees. People with a passion for social change, who bring sound governance experience and specific skills and / or networks within our key areas of focus over the next 18 months.

  • Financial and audit / risk experience (with a recognised financial qualification) to become our Treasurer and chair of our Finance Committee


  • Expertise in the commercial use, development and maintenance of historic buildings


  • Connections and networks within the London Diocese of the Church of England and an interest in the creative use of our Chapel

The House has existed since 1846. It’s from these origins we’ve inherited our Grade 1 listed building, and the consecrated chapel from which we take our name. That’s quite a legacy to build on.
