Opportunity for Trustees
Billions of people around the world lack a safe home due to conflict, poverty, natural disasters, and poor housing rights. At World Habitat, we work as a catalyst to help people overcome these challenges. We find out what works, help it grow and transfer great housing ideas to where they are needed most.
We run the World Habitat Awards celebrating the best in housing solutions; peer exchanges that bring people and ideas together; we champion communities that take control of solving their own housing needs; and we initiated and coordinate the European End Street Homelessness Campaign.
World Habitat has an exciting future. Following our recently refreshed identity, we are developing an ambitious new strategy. And we are looking for new people to join us – particularly if you have experience of international housing or of financial investment – to help shape that future and the futures of people all over the world.
As a Trustee you would be expected to attend four half-day board meetings each year (held in our offices in Coalville in Leicestershire) as well as an annual strategy planning day. These are unpaid positions, but expenses are refunded.
