IKWRO Trustee recruitment

IKWRO is recruiting trustees on a rolling basis. We are currently accepting applications for potential high calibre trustees with several years of direct professional experience in one or more of the below fields:

  • Charity/voluntary sector experience
  • Advertising, marketing, PR and/or branding
  • Website and/or graphic design and/or UX
  • Fundraising for charities
  • Employment Law
  • Human Resources

In terms of time commitment: there is an annual AGM and the trustees have a board meeting every 6 weeks, usually on a weeknight at 6.00 pm for 2 hours in the City of London. The dates are set on an annual basis and the board endeavours to check the availability of trustees prior to setting the dates.

In between board meetings, the board have further sub-committee meetings also lasting 2 hours, on dates and times set by agreement and further work is carried out between meetings by individual board members working directly with employees of the charity to assist them in achieving their objectives.

This is an exciting opportunity to be on an all-women board of a charity which does important work to protect and promote the safety and rights of women from the Middle-East, Turkey, Afghanistan and North Africa.

As this is a small charity, the trustees have an important strategic and rewarding role in assisting the charity in achieving its objectives and therefore any new trustee should be prepared to commit several hours per month to assisting the charity.

If you wish to apply, please fill in the attached MS word application form and send to the charity’s executive director, Diana Nammi at Diana.Nammi@ikwro.org.uk

If you have any questions about the role, please feel free to write Diana an email.
