The William Temple Foundation is an innovative and ground-breaking research and ideas hub, shaping debate on religion in public life. Founded in 1947, it seeks to connect Christian social concerns to the realities of the secular world by generating ideas about the impact of religion on civil society, wellbeing, politics and economics, and urban change. The Foundation currently has 20 Trustees, Associate Research Fellows, and William Temple Scholars.

We are currently organising a radical three-year re-structuring programme and are looking for two new trustees with experience in organisational management and fundraising capabilities to join our dedicated team. Applicants are expected to be self-motivated and sympathetic to the ethos, aims and objectives of the Foundation, irrespective of their personal beliefs, values or worldviews.

Trustees are asked to:

  • Attend council meetings three times a year.
  • Share with staff and Associate Research Fellows the task of developing and promoting the profile of the Foundation.
  • Think strategically about the long-term future and management of the organisation, including its financial situation.

The Foundation offers trustees:

  • All reasonable travel expenses.
  • The chance to develop new skills.
  • The opportunity to work on national and regional projects.
  • The opportunity to have research papers and broadsheet think-pieces published on a national scale.
  • The opportunity to make a real impact on the future of the Foundation and its work on the place of religion in public life.

To apply, please send a two-page CV and covering letter to the Chair of Trustees, the Venerable Peter Robinson, and the Director of Research, Professor Chris Baker, by 5.00pm, Sunday 30th June 2019. Please include in your covering letter a brief statement outlining any previous fundraising experience you may have. The Chair of Trustees will be in touch with all applicants within two weeks of the deadline.

For further enquiries please contact Peter Robinson or Chris Baker.
