Board Bank

What is Board Bank?

King's is committed to working with local partners to make positive change in the boroughs we call home. 

One way we do this is by supporting our staff, students and alumni to become charity trustees through our Board Bank programme. Through Board Bank, King’s connects local organisations looking for trustees with the skills and experience of our students, staff and alumni. 

The King’s community is wide ranging and diverse. King’s people include researchers and professionals, entrepreneurs and changemakers with knowledge and experience of the issues that local organisations aim to address. 

Since June 2019, over 120 staff and 140 students have signed up for sessions delivered in partnership with charity recruitment specialists Getting on Board. Our student programmes are co-delivered with our student union, KCLSU, and we have pledged to play our part in the Young Trustees Movement

If you are a local charity with board vacancies, contact us via local@kcl.ac.uk to find out how we can support you to find trustees from the King’s community. 

Find out more about other ways that King’s is working with local authorities, local organisations and community leaders to develop collaborative approaches to our shared challenges.
