Volunteer Opportunities

  • Board Trustee vacancies

    TLMNI is seeking four passionate and committed individuals to join the current Board of Trustees. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who have the skills and experience in one of the following areas as well as generalist skills that would enhance the role of the Board: 

    • Finance & Accountancy 
    • Fundraising & Marketing 
    • International Development 

    Board Trustees are expected to attend four Board Meetings per annum (normally a Monday evening).  In addition Board Trustees may be invited to join a sub-Committee or represent TLMNI occasionally at a special event.  Meetings are held in the TLMNI offices in Lisburn.  TLMNI is an explicitly Christian charity, and part of your role as a Trustee will be to represent the Mission’s purpose and ethos to external audiences, provide Christian leadership and inspire Churches and individual Christians to pray for and support the Mission’s work. 
    To register your interest in joining the Board, please contact the National Director, Joanne Briggs on 028 9262 9500 or via email, If interested, an informal meeting can be arranged with the Director or a Trustee to find out more. A formal discussion with a subgroup will be a part of the selection process.
