Your chance to make a powerful contribution to tackling the climate emergency and ending the misery caused by cold homes.

Are you looking for a meaningful way to contribute to tackling the climate emergency and addressing social injustice in the UK energy system? Becoming a trustee at the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) offers just such an opportunity.

CSE is a Bristol-based national charity that supports people and organisations across the UK to tackle the climate emergency and end the suffering caused by cold homes. We are one of the UK’s leading sustainable energy charities. And we have a 40-year track record of award-winning impact, innovation and influence (as detailed in our 2022-23 Annual Report).

Our board of trustees has been central to that continuing success. As the result of the planned retirement of a number of our trustees, we’re recruiting up to four new trustees. Their role will be to provide effective governance and support the development of the charity.

We are keen to widen the range of perspectives represented on our board. We’re welcoming applications from young people, people of colour, disabled people and people with personal experience of fuel poverty.

To encourage and support applicants with limited experience of organisational governance, we’ll offer a training scheme in which new recruits will be mentored by experienced existing trustees.

In addition, we are seeking individuals who can bring expertise in at least one of the following areas:

Have you got the qualities we need?

All trustees have a strong interest in and commitment to CSE’s work and charitable objectives.
The role is voluntary, though reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be paid.

The time commitment required is on average less than a day per month.

For more information on the role, the full person specification and how to apply, see trustee role specification and information.

Deadline for applications is midday on Monday 4 December 2023.
