Before you apply
The current BAFTSS EC is majority white, cisgender and non-disabled. We believe our work will be stronger with greater diversity and welcome applications from those who bring difference. BAFTSS welcomes the whole person, and we understand that each of us bring our experiences, our backgrounds and our own unique lens to what we do. The current EC is also predominantly based in England so we also strongly encourage nominations from the Nations (Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) and Regions so we can make the EC more representative.
