Peaceful Change initiative - Trustee
We are seeking an enthusiastic and capable trustee to join our board.
Who we are
We are a transformational peacebuilding charity registered in the UK with operations in North Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. We are funded primarily by the UK, Swiss and German governments, the UN and the EU. We have a staff of approximately 40 professionals, and an annual income of about £5 million.
Experience of or interest in important fundraising projects would be desirable; HR experience would also be a plus.
Peaceful Change initiative (PCi) is an extraordinary organisation. Through our efforts we bring an end to violent conflict between rival groups – there can be more than two – in a country where innocent people have been killed. Achieving a peaceful resolution to the conflict is very often necessary before any productive human activity can take place – before children can go to school, before anyone can go shopping, before healthcare becomes available, before construction or office work can begin, before people can eat and sleep in peace. PCi’s work is essential.
As a PCi trustee you will learn the what, how, why, and when of peacebuilding, and you will be making it happen! The PCi board currently consists of six trustees. There are two, two-hour board meetings per year during where budgets and results are discussed in-depth. On a monthly basis, there are one-hour briefings on projects and cash flow. The Risk Management and Finance subcommittees of the board meet twice a year. The Fundraising subcommittee meets fortnightly, for half an hour. All our meetings are conducted on Microsoft Teams. We generally have an annual reception and briefing for our sponsors in London.
