Suzy Lamplugh Trust is looking to strengthen its board of trustees. If you have experience of generating income through business-to-business sales or marketing, either in a commercial or non-profit setting, we would like to hear from you.

Suzy Lamplugh Trust was founded 30 years ago by Paul and Diana Lamplugh, after their daughter Suzy disappeared whilst going about her work as an estate agent. Since then, the Trust has pioneered personal safety as a life skill and a public policy priority.

Our vision is a society in which people are safer - and feel safer - from violence and aggression; we want people to be able to live life to the full.

Our mission is to reduce the risk of violence and aggression through campaigning, education and support.

Suzy Lamplugh Trusts operates as a social enterprise organisation through the sales and delivery of our high-quality personal safety training and consultancy.  We want to maximise the potential growth of this area and are therefore looking for a trustee with commercial experience to join the board.

We are looking for someone who can offer:

Experience of generating income through business-to-business services, either in a commercial or charitable/non-profit setting

  • Knowledge of effective marketing or business development strategies
  • Working with boards, committees or steering groups
  • Financial literacy
  • Proven strategy skills
  • The ability to work with a board or committee and to support the Trust’s chief executive

We are committed to equal opportunities and seek to build a diverse board of trustees. We therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community and would particularly encourage applications from individuals from Black and Minority Ethnic communities.  

We pay trustees’ travel expenses and provide a full induction to the work of the charity.

The trustee we appoint will be expected to attend four Board meetings (held on a weekday evening in London) and approximately four other meetings or events per year.
