Board Bank hero banner v2

Are you interested in enhancing your employability and developing your leadership skills as a charity board member?

If so, volunteering as a charity trustee is a great way to support a cause you are passionate about, while gaining leadership experience, cross-sector skills and exposure to new environments that can help enhance your own career and wellbeing.

Sign up for one of our Board Bank Discover sessions led by specialist trustee recruitment charity Getting on Board this February to find out more.

King’s is committed to working with local partners to make positive change in the boroughs we call home. Created in partnership with KCLSU, Student Board Bank connects local organisations looking for trustees with the skills and experience of King’s students and staff. 

I have never sat on a board and it is a great opportunity to learn more about finance, governance and build on existing skills like communication and teamwork that will support me in my future career. More than anything, I want to open the door for other people with my experiences to join a charity and make a real difference to people’s lives.– Anbreen Bi, MSc Psychiatric Research and student Board Bank participant
