Founded eleven years ago by Marina Cantacuzino, recently joined by our new CEO Tim Mungeam, we are seeking to grow the reach and impact of our extraordinary, powerful, and award winning work. Are you the person to join our Trustee Board and help us take that next step?
As a Trustee you will be part of a passionate and dedicated team of volunteers, using your skills and experience to shape and guide the delivery of our organisational strategy.
At this pivotal time for the charity, TFP is looking to recruit two new trustees, ideally with expertise to bring in relation to communications, or people management, to build the expertise and capacity of our Board.
We are looking for someone who can bring their experience of communications to our Trustee Board, someone who understands how we can build our brand, reach new audiences, and ensure we tell the stories of our work innovatively and effectively, using multiple platforms, from face to face to new forms of digital.
We are also looking to build our organisational capacity, from our core of a highly committed staff and volunteer team to the wider group of amazing facilitators, speakers and story tellers, and through our work with international partners. We are therefore looking for someone to bring their experience of people management to the board, who understands human resources (HR) management and procedures but also can help guide our growing work across our affiliates and associates.
We are looking for people who share our ethos, of integrity, empathy and respect for each individual’s contribution; for people with energy, creativity, and a willingness to challenge and be challenged; and with a real interest in and commitment to the work of TFP and a desire to make a significant difference.
