Right now, 844 million people in the world don’t have clean water close to home and 2.3 billion people don’t have a decent toilet of their own. Together, with our partners and supporters around the world, we will change that.

WaterAid is an international not-for-profit organisation, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

As some of our highly committed trustees reach the end of their terms, we are now seeking to appoint three new trustees to join our UK Board. We are particularly looking to appoint a trustee with legal experience; a trustee with international advocacy and campaigning experience; and a qualified accountant, who will also Chair our Audit Committee. Our aim is to maintain a diverse and balanced Board. Trustees work on a pro-bono basis, and are asked to give around 10-15 days a year to WaterAid, including attendance at Board meetings in London 4 times a year.

“The Board’s driving conviction is to finish a Board meeting and know that together we advanced the water, sanitation and hygiene agenda further that day.” Vice Chair, Dr. Mala Rao MBE

People are at the heart of everything we do. If you share our vision and values, and have the skills and experience needed to help us carry out our mission, we would welcome your application. For further information, please see our trustee appointment information pack. 

The closing date for applications is Monday 29 April 2019.

Details of how to apply can be found in the information pack, or please contact   if you have any questions.​
