ActionAid is a leading international organisation working with communities and local organisations in over 45 countries, supporting them to claim their rights and build a life without poverty and injustice. With our grassroots experience, we demand progress from those in power at local, national and international levels to build lasting change. In The Netherlands ActionAid focusses on campaigning and advocacy for food security, fair mining, tax justice, women's rights and emergency response.
Our mission is to work with poor and excluded people to eradicate poverty and injustice around the globe. Each of our Trustees offers a different perspective on the challenges and opportunities we face, which is why we feel it is important to have a diversified board. You will be a guardian of our ethos and values as well as ensure we are led and managed effectively. From setting strategic direction, checking our progress against strategy, and ensuring that the organisation is financially sound and compliant with all relevant laws and regulations you will play a vital role in our success.
Being a trustee on the board is a formal, legal responsibility. The Trustees discuss issues and make decisions by mutual agreement, and together they have a moral and legal obligation to make decisions in the interests of the organization and to ensure the organisation spend its money wisely.
We are looking for a professional that has commercial / entrepreneurial experience (to advise on fundraising and communications). You will be a full member of the Board of Trustees and expected to contribute to all areas of the Board’s work. You’ll need to commit to working approximately 6 days a year (unpaid). This involves:
Trustees are appointed for a term of three years. At the end of this, if you want to continue to be a Trustee then you may be reappointed for a final term of three years.
