About WBG 

The Women’s Budget Group is an independent and not-for-profit membership network consisting of women’s voluntary organisations, academics and policy experts, and activists whose aims are to promote a gender equal economy. We do this through conducting in depth analysis of the impact of public policy on women. Our analysis has been used to influence policy debates on a national and local level. 

Find out more about our vision for a gender equal economy 

We run a range of projects that work to build the capacity of women’s organisations as well as national and international campaigning organisations and other equality groups. 

Find out more about the capacity building work we are doing through our Local Data Project.

We are also working on a project to build support for an intersectional Feminist Green New Deal in the UK.  Find out more here. 

 And we work in partnership with our sister organisations, the Scottish Women’s Budget Group, Northern Ireland Women’s Budget Group and Wales Women’s Budget Group. 

About the Board 

The WBG Board plays a vital role in our work – setting the strategic direction, monitoring progress, ensuring good governance,  and supporting the Director and staff in their work. This is an unpaid role, but expenses are paid for in person meetings.  

As part of our succession planning board membership could include taking on senior roles within the board following a period of familiarisation and supported development. 

Previous experience on a Board would be an advantage, but is not essential. We particularly encourage applications from black and minority ethnic, disabled, and working-class people, who are currently underrepresented on our Board. We also actively encourage applications from all four nations of the UK 

We are keen to hear from people who have experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • The impact of economic policy on women 
  • Governance and leadership 
  • Organisational change and growth
  • Financial management 
  • HR 
  • Data management 
  • Marketing and communications 
  • Community fundraising 
  • Health and Safety
