Opportunity: join our Board of Trustees
The Finance Innovation Lab is at an exciting stage in its development. Since our transition to independence in 2015, we’ve launched a unique incubation programme for financial innovators, shifted the debate on fintech and social purpose, and brought together hundreds of people to challenge the status quo in finance. Now we’re looking for new Trustees to guide our work and support us to scale.
We are recruiting for the following roles:
- Chair of Trustees
- General Trustees who can help diversify our Board and fill key capacity gaps.
You can read about our current Trustees here.
In this round of recruitment, we are particularly keen to appoint Trustees with capabilities in one or more of the following areas:
- Experience working in or with mainstream financial institutions
- Experience of grant-making or charity fundraising
- Knowledge or experience of business development
- Experience of working with or representing the end users of finance, particularly those marginalised or exploited by the financial system
- Expertise in the legal and regulatory requirements applying to charities.
We are keen to improve the diversity of the Board and particularly encourage applicants who:
- Identify as Black, Asian or minority ethnic
- Have direct lived experience of being marginalised by the financial system.
