Integrity Action is looking for a Bard!

Trustee to help us tell a powerful story

Who are we?

Integrity Action’s work has a clear focus: to promote integrity in the delivery of essential services, infrastructure projects and humanitarian aid in some of the world’s toughest environments. We take a unique approach to social accountability. Using mobile technology and our DevelopmentCheck platform, we enable citizens to monitor the delivery of projects local to them – and to solve the problems they find.

To date we have worked with over 10,000 community members and helped them to monitor – and fix – hundreds of projects, worth more than $1bn, affecting around 5 million people across more than a dozen countries. The result is development money doing what it is meant to do.

The result is that funds already allocated and committed to poverty alleviation – whether domestic or foreign – are actually delivered. It’s the equivalent of channelling billions of additional dollars into development. And all of this leads to greater confidence in international development and protects future funds.

There is growing recognition from across the sector that our approach is exactly what is needed. Our response is captured in our 2018 - 2023 Strategy which outlines an exciting new direction that is already proving effective. This year we are expanding our work to Madagascar and Uganda, followed by Central African Republic, Iraq, Lebanon, Zambia and Zimbabwe in 2021. The latest iteration of the DevelopmentCheck mobile app is making it much easier for monitors to collect data and for duty bearers to access results and learning. This new approach is also lean – it means we have a business model that requires limited fundraising support. As a result, we are look to the future with great excitement – anticipating years of bringing exponential impact to the people we work for.

Would you like to join us?

We are seeking a Trustee to join our exciting Board and help us tell a powerful story of lives changed. Can you guide us to better shape our stories and help us be more creative in how we use them?

We have some powerful stories to tell on behalf of the women and men, girls and boys who act to ensure that their communities receive what they were promised by aid and development. Can you advise us on how to harness and read the audience response? To help us engage that response and take it further?

Are you a good communicator and presenter with experience of expressing complexity with simplicity? Whether it’s through words, video, audio, images, design or a combination of them all, it really doesn’t matter.

If yes, we would love to hear from you!

Time commitment

The time commitment required equates to approximately 8 days a year. This will include:

o 4 Trustee meetings per annum (three are held in London normally between 11am and 1.30pm and one is a full-day strategy day)

o Likely participation in a sub-committee (these are held on the same days as Board meetings)

o Supporting the Executive team to find the route to outstanding and powerful story telling

o Occasional visit to a programme overseas
