Trustees
Girls Not Brides
Global
Unremunerated – Travel and representation expenses as well as other out of pocket expenses directly incurred as part of official business are reimbursed in line with the trustee expenses policy. 

Girls Not Brides is the only global organisation uniquely focused on creating and sustaining a worldwide movement to end child, early and forced marriage and unions (CEFMU). This is a neglected global issue affecting over 12 million girls annually. We are a network of more than 1,400 civil society organisations in over 100 countries working in partnership to end child marriage.

Our vision is a world without child marriage where girls and women enjoy equal status with boys and men and can achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the board of Girls Not Brides and make a significant impact on a critical global issue and be part of a respected and global movement that is making real, documented progress in ending child marriage.

Our new cohort of trustees for the Board of Girls Not Brides should be exceptional individuals whose skills and experiences set them apart in terms of being able to make a substantial contribution to our evolution and growth. We are looking for people who are committed, engaged and reliable.  

To work alongside our new Chair, we are seeking candidates who will bring a background in one or more of the following areas:

  • Senior level financial management experience and willingness to assume the role of treasurer (including Chairing the Finance and Audit Committee).
  • Senior-level experience in governance and / or in people management.
  • Strong understanding of, and experience in, the field of the child marriage and / or intersecting areas such as human rights, gender equality, education, shifting social norms or reproductive health, preferably gained within the international context and / or in countries and regions where the global partnership is active.
  • Experience of high-level advocacy and including around national, regional and international policies.
  • High level experience of networking, philanthropy, and leveraging of resources.
  • Successful track record of coalition/movement building.  

We are committed to further enhancing the Board’s diversity, in terms of ensuring: (i) a comprehensive range of skills and expertise; and (ii) that it is representative of the cultures and backgrounds where the global movement is most engaged. To support this latter process, we would particularly like to hear from people with experience of either living or working in countries with a high prevalence of child marriage.

If you wish to have an informal discussion about either the Chair or Trustee roles, please contact our retained advisors Harjit Bola or Mia Walker-Saunders at Prospectus.
