Our client is looking for a Trustee with particular skills and experience to join its Board.

  • Trustee with high level international development experience in the global south

Our client is an ambitious organisation committed to transforming the way technology is used to improve the lives of people living in or vulnerable to poverty.  Working throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, they improve the lives of nearly three million people every year through improved access to energy, sustainable agriculture, water, sanitation and waste management and through disaster risk reduction.  With income of over £30m and working in 13 countries they are a medium sized charitable organisation.  This is an exciting time for our client globally as they have just agreed their strategic intent to 2030 and created operational plans to deliver on their ambition.

They are looking for trustees who have an understanding and empathy with their mission, values and work as well as having the experience and ability to provide valuable oversight and make strategic judgments together with your fellow Trustees on a range of complex issues affecting their global organisation.  The Board provides challenge and support to the Strategic Leadership Team composed of the CEO, Country Directors and UK based functional Directors.
