Zero Tolerance is seeking to recruit enthusiastic, committed and skilled trustees to our board. We are looking for people with a range of experiences and expertise to join the board, including someone with the skills and interest in becoming our Treasurer.

About us

Zero Tolerance’s vision is of a world without men’s violence against women, in which women enjoy full gender equality and all human rights are upheld. We work to tackle the root cause of male violence against women - women’s inequality - and promote a primary prevention approach to challenging the attitudes, values and structures that sustain inequality and abuse.

This voluntary position is an exciting opportunity to work with an established and vibrant charity and make a real difference to our work to challenge violence against women and gender inequality.
