Consortium has implemented practices that aim to reduce bias in our recruitment process. When reviewing applications, the information provided in your covering letter will be viewed independently, without access to information from your CV or the personal details provided in section 1 of the application form.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups, including people of colour or people from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic) communities, People of Colour, women, trans and non-binary people and people who are older (50+). We recognise the use of terms such as BAME/PoC reflect a diverse range of people and communities. We use it as inclusively as possible to reflect people from communities who experience racism.

Equity is important to the success of our team and work. We don’t want any barriers to applying so if you want to discuss particular aspects of our approach, or get a better understanding of whether Consortium is right for you, then please contact Paul, our CEO, on:

Role Purpose

Consortium hosts the UK’s largest network of LGBT+ organisations with over 400 Members.

We have received further funding from City Bridge Trust Fund to increase support for LGBT+ Groups across London as we live through and emerge out of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are in the position to recruit a part-time Community Development Officer who will join our team to work directly with our Members in London, with support from the wider UK Engagement Team.

This member-facing role will support LGBT+ organisations across London Boroughs with a diverse range of issues, including good governance, income generation, networking and organisational development.

This role will consult with Members and wider Engagement Team on their emerging needs and explore new relationships that can be built with Local Borough Authorities and Pan-London Authorities to ensure the needs of our diverse LGBT+ communities are being addressed in their funding and policy development.


Consortium has been working as a virtual organisation for nearly 9 years with a team spread across the UK, all working from their own homes. A working from home payment, of a discretionary amount in line with HMRC guidance, is made to all staff to contribute to costs that might be incurred through this way of working.

Consortium encourages its team to maintain a good work life balance. Staff are encouraged to take time off in lieu for any hours worked beyond their contracted hours.

Consortium’s core hours are between 10am and 3pm and staff can agree regular working patterns with their line manager.

Consortium has an auto-enrolment pension scheme, which all eligible employees benefit from.
