Royal Naval Benevolent Trust – Trustee Vacancies 2018


Would you like to be involved in helping to run the charity which helps serving and former serving naval and RM ratings and their dependants in times of need and distress? 

RNBT has vacancies for ‘Ordinary Member’ Trustees.
The Royal Naval Benevolent Trust (RNBT) helps those who are serving or have served as Warrant Officers and below in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, and their dependants, who find themselves in need or distress.  Thousands of applicants, both serving and retired, are assisted every year.  We also run a Care Home and an Almshouse.  Find out more from our website:

A founding principle of the Trust is that it is predominantly run by those who are serving or have served as non-commissioned Sailors and Royal Marines.  Accordingly 11 of the 16 trustees that form the RNBT’s governing body (including the Trust’s Vice President) are drawn from serving and retired personnel who have been or are RN ratings and RM other ranks.

Vacancies will occur for 5 such Trustee positions with effect from 1 April 2018 as part of the RNBT’s routine planned turnover of trustees.  The election of volunteers to fill these positions, including those who are standing down but may wish to stand for re-election, will happen in the last week of March.

If you are interested please contact Rob Bosshardt (Chief Executive) at the RNBT’s Portsmouth-based Head Office (02392 690112).  You can also email a request for an application pack via:

The closing date for applications is

12th March 2018
