Your Pride In London 

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it belongs to you; come and join the conversation!

Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Around 250 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. It is our intention for Pride in London to best represent all parts of our community and we continue to actively encourage applications from diverse backgrounds, particularly women, People of Colour and those from the trans and non-binary communities. All applications are important to us so if you’d like to be part of the future of Pride in London please register your interest or share this opportunity with your network.

Your new role

Reporting to the Head of Training and People Development, you will help to develop, manage and deliver the development for core group of year-round volunteers.

  • Develop relevant people development material 
  • Work with our partners on the people development resources they can provide
  • Create and deliver development pathways for our year round volunteers
  • Explore alternative learning and development opportunities for our volunteers
  • Help with “on the day” operational training for our parade volunteers
  • Maintain a keen understanding of trends, developments and best practices

Who you are

  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience
  • A chance to broaden your professional network

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.
