Tibet Relief Fund (TRF) has been working to empower Tibetans living in exile in India, Nepal and across the world for over 60 years. We fund grassroots Tibetan-led organisations & communities to provide key services which enable access to health care, education and sustainable livelihoods, as well as supporting projects which promote the preservation and celebration of Tibetan language and culture.
There are some skills, experiences and ways of working which we feel are essential to thrive as our Charity Manager:
- A good understanding of how charities work
- Able to work closely with trustees on governance and operational issues
- Interest and experience (whether voluntary or professional) in international development
- A great project manager
The trustees are committed to ongoing support of Tibetans to build brighter futures and so are in the process of restructuring the charity to streamline our operations, optimise resources and strengthen the impact of our work.
So, this really is a pivotal time to join us.
The first step of our journey is to recruit a Charity Manager.
As Charity Manager, your initial priority will be to help shape, and then implement, the change programme. The day-to-day responsibilities will include ensuring the team is focussed on agreed priorities, supporting and some direct involvement with the programme management and playing a part in fundraising/marketing/communications activity. You’ll also make sure that the charity’s support functions (finance, HR, general policies/procedures etc) are working well and, with the trustees, be on top of charity governance. Trustees may also delegate some part of representing TRF with the charity funders, the Tibetan community, and partner organisations. There may be the opportunity to visit overseas projects, but only if you are comfortable doing so.
