Development in Action (DiA) is seeking a new Chair to lead our youth and volunteer led organization. The role of Chair is a great opportunity to develop leadership and management skills within a small and dynamic youth-focused organisation, committed to the young people involved in it and the organisations we work with in India. You will be a highly motivated individual, committed to DiA’s mission and values and looking for a new challenge.
DiA is a development education charity working to engage young people in global issues and to promote global citizenship in the UK. We do this through delivering youth workshops, hosting public events, providing an online platform for young people to engage with, and working with partners in India to offer a sustainable and responsible internship programme in India.
DiA operates through a management committee working across four separate teams: India, UK, Communications and Fundraising. The Chair is responsible for the efficient management, support and development of the management committee, and the organisation more broadly, ensuring that committee teams deliver against the organisational strategy.
