Job Description

Location: Meetings held in Kingston upon Thames, London UK and online
Salary: Unremunerated

We are looking to appoint four new Trustees who can help us work toward our vision of a fair world for everyone. The culture and diversity of our board is key to our success and we are looking for broad and well-rounded Trustees who are curious, strategic, collegiate, and reflective people who bring innovation, diverse thinking and fresh ideas. We are at a critical point in the development of VSO, and it is key that our board membership reflects the skills, experience and knowledge that our organisation needs now.

We want to attract people from a range of backgrounds including, but not limited to, strategic finance professionals who understand complex international business models, strategy gurus with experience in governance, fundraising professionals, and people with organisational development and change management experience. Our board currently does not reflect the work we do in Asia, and we would like to invite someone with experience either in international development (contract management or evaluation) or international business experience in Asia to come forward.

We expect an average time commitment to be about one day per month. The board currently meets three times per year at our offices for up to two days of meetings and sessions. All Trustees will join a sub-committee which meets virtually three times throughout the year, and we expect every 18-24 months for our Trustees to visit our programmes and projects in country.

Together we want to create a fair world for everyone and create lasting change through volunteering. What could be a better way to do so than as a Trustee at one of the leading international development organisations?
