Who we are

EachOther puts the human into human rights here in the UK. Our independent journalism, film-making and story-telling inform people about our rights and inspire people to speak up for them. In an often divided country, we amplify the everyday stories which show how much we all have in common.

We are committed to refreshing our EachOther family so that it better reflects our audience. EachOther believes that a more diverse board can bring a wider set of life experiences to bear, avoid groupthink and strengthen our governance. So, we would particularly welcome applications from people from groups that are marginalized in society or underrepresented on our board – especially people who are young, black, women, non-binary, on a low income or from outside London. Applicants do not need to have been a trustee before. The role is voluntary but the experience you’d gain as a trustee would be valuable for your career. If you have ideas for how to address the human rights challenges the UK faces, we would like to hear from you.

As well as being able to draw on a diverse set of life experiences, our trustees need the right range of interests to support the charity’s work. Following a recent skills audit, these are the areas of interest we are hoping to develop on the board: film-making; human resources; charity fundraising; data and analytics; marketing or advertising; and education. Insight and enthusiasm in these areas will count as much as professional history. We believe in the expertise that comes from lived experience as well that which is learned in the workplace.
