The team at Pathfinders is made up of, and led by, people from the communities we represent, including our trustees. There are lots of opportunities to become a part of the team at Pathfinders, including jobs, freelance opportunities, and volunteering.
We are currently recruiting for trustees – if you are interested in applying, please contact Sarah and Vicky, our Chairs of Trustees.
