London, UK
at Twentieth Century Society

The Twentieth Century Society is looking for new trustees to join the charity’s board in London.

Who are we?

The Twentieth Century Society is the national charity that campaigns to protect Britain’s modern architectural and design heritage.

We were founded in 1979 and have become a highly respected and influential organisation, actively engaging with architects, planners, heritage professionals, policymakers and the wider public to champion the protection and appreciation of the most undervalued part of our built heritage. We are also a public-facing membership organisation, with a strong media presence and a significant role in the development of the built environment.

Join us and help shape the future of heritage

Following the appointment of Hugh Pearman as our new chair, we’re now looking to recruit several new trustees to help us run our charity, supplementing and widening the skills, expertise and experience already present on the board whilst bringing fresh perspectives.

We are especially keen to appoint candidates with ideas and expertise around strategic and creative thinking, fundraising and income generation, human resources, digital and physical engagement and increasing youth (under 35) engagement. We believe these skills will be crucial as we aim to grow the charity and make ourselves more sustainable over the next 5 years.

Previous experience as a trustee is not required. Being a trustee is a voluntary appointment and charity law prohibits payment of trustees. We particularly welcome applications from early career professionals and those from underrepresented backgrounds.
