Trustee Role

The Chamberlain Highbury Trust has a vacancy for a Board Member to support the work of the Trust in developing partnerships with the Education Sector.

This independent charitable Trust was established in 2015 to restore Highbury, the magnificent home of Joseph Chamberlain, Birmingham’s most famous civic leader, and to secure its future as a place to educate and develop the leaders of the future. Highbury, with its grade II* listed mansion and grounds, holds an important place in the country’s political and architectural history. It was left in trust to the citizens of Birmingham by the Chamberlain Family in 1919, 100 years ago.

As a Trustee you will work as part of a team to raise support and funding to restore the mansion and its grounds and to secure its place in the educational and cultural life of the community. CHT trustees are active and entrepreneurial, contributing their ideas and energy to initiatives dedicated to the legacy of the Chamberlain family and to the engagement of young people.
