Trustee (voluntary role)

The Board of Child Soldiers International is seeking to recruit two new trustees to support the governance and organisational development needs of the future.

We seek to recruit committed individuals who feel passionate about defending the rights of children affected by armed conflict, and who are willing to provide hands-on support to our work.

Individually, trustees will have a proven track record of success in their own area of expertise, strong leadership and communication skills, together with a strong commitment to Child Soldiers International’s organisational goal. 

Trustees should have a clear understanding of the principles and practice of good governance, have high standards of integrity and be able to promote and support Child Soldiers International in their sphere of expertise. 

Trustees will be expected to participate in quarterly board meetings and the annual organisational strategy meeting in London.

Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with expertise in:

  • Child rights and/or international advocacy; or
  • Corporate and/or public fundraising

We welcome applications from candidates who are resident worldwide.

We offer:

  • Reasonable travel expenses reimbursed, in line with Child Soldiers International’s expenses guidelines.

To apply, please submit a CV with a covering letter outlining your interest in the role to info@child-soldiers.org.

Closing date: Monday 6 November 2017
