Two new Trustees are wanted by the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust (BSLBT)

Voluntary positions; expenses paid

BSLBT is a young, high-performing charity that exists to make sign-presented TV programmes and online content available to the Deaf community who use BSL as their first, or preferred, language.

Since it started in 2008, BSLBT has established a track record of excellence and we have won a number of awards for our commissions. BSLBT became a charity in January 2012.

The board is mainly made up of members of our two key stakeholder groups: the Deaf community and the mainstream broadcasting/programme-making world.

On this occasion, we have two vacancies and we are looking to strengthen the Board’s skills and experience in:

  • Finance and investment
  • Charity governance
  • HR

At least one of our appointments must be Deaf.

You would be joining the charity at an exciting time, with Trustees committed to building on our substantial success to date.
