Job description

Who we are 
Peace Direct is an international charity with a big mission: to work with local people to stop violence and build sustainable peace in some of the world's most conflict affected countries. More than that, we want to change the international system so that it better supports the role that local people and communities play in preventing violence and building and sustaining peace.

We are looking for 2-3 Trustees to join our Board in the coming year. We are looking for people who are passionate about our mission, even if they don't come from a peacebuilding background, and who will bring their energy and expertise to help ensure that Peace Direct continues to be a leading peacebuilding organisation globally. We are particularly keen to ensure that we have a diverse Board, so we are looking for people from different walks of life and backgrounds, including those with a lived experience of conflict. 

Finally, we are looking to fill some skills gaps on the Board, including public fundraising and marketing/PR/advertising. We would welcome applications from people who have one or more of these skills, but we also encourage other people to apply if they feel that they have useful skills and experience to offer!


At a time when violent conflict is increasing globally, this is an opportunity to contribute to sustainable peace around the world, and to ensure that local people can lead the efforts to stop violence.
