Join the family

Pride in London is run entirely by volunteers. Some of us work on short-term projects or campaigns - and some of us work all year round as part of the core team. Taking part is an incredible experience and we’d love you to join the team.

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
