Three Trustee applications

Working in over 200 countries, Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good!

In some parts of the world, the Scriptures are difficult to access or are simply unavailable. In this country, the Bible is readily available but its value is unrecognised by millions.

With an income of £20m and 160 staff, we’re working hard to increase Bible confidence in the church, change the conversation about the Bible in wider culture, and catalyse Bible inspired change. We take the Bible and find ways to increase access and engagement with it and help people connect it with their everyday lives.

We are seeking to reach the spiritually open, non-church going public by inspiring them with innovative and compelling campaigns using digital and traditional media to help overcome some of the barriers to engaging with the Bible.

This requires us to reflect the audiences we exist to serve. To that end, Bible Society is making big efforts to bring diversity at every level of the organisation including in these board appointments – this includes across sex, ethnicity, class, geography, educational background and denomination.

This will include courageous leaders from these different backgrounds, putting themselves forward without obvious role models who have gone before, but who can skilfully navigate cultural change and be the role models for future generations.

To help us, we are looking for up to three trustees who bring expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Marketing and communications – particularly experience of working with the media and the opportunities and pitfalls of engaging in public debate.
  • Digital campaigns – experience of leading successful audience-centred digital campaigns.
  • Entrepreneurship – commercially minded, creative and entrepreneurial business leaders with experience of successfully scaling a business and a start-up, make-it-happen mentality.
