The Foreign Policy Centre seeks new Trustees (NFP or think tank governance and related law expertise sought)
The Foreign Policy Centre, an international affairs think tank, is seeking to recruit new members for its Advisory Council and its Board of Trustees.
The Foreign Policy Centre (FPC), an international affairs think tank, is seeking to recruit new members for its Advisory Council and identify suitable candidates to join its Board of Directors (Trustees). Trustees have formal governance responsibilities while the Advisory Council is a looser affiliation, but both roles would work with the Executive Director and Chair of Trustees to help advise the staff team and build the FPC’s capacity.
At this time, we are looking to recruit new members who specifically have expertise and experience in three key areas:
- Fundraising (including Trust and Foundation, high-value donor, governmental, institutional, event and online fundraising);
- Not-for-profit or think tank governance and related law; or
- Media engagement and strategy.
While we are open to applications from a wide range of backgrounds, we are particularly keen to see applicants with knowledge of the think tank or wider NGO sector. The specific time commitment for these new roles can be flexible depending on personal availability, but we are keen to recruit people who can be available to assist for between 5-10 days per year. Most activities will be conducted remotely but with occasional in-person meetings in London (when public health conditions permit).
To apply please send a copy of your CV and a covering letter outlining your interest in either or both of the roles and explaining your relevant expertise by email via the button below. Please visit www.fpc.org.uk or get in touch if you require further information ahead of making an application. Closing date 24 February 2021.
About the Foreign Policy Centre
The FPC is an outward-looking, non-partisan international affairs think-tank based in the UK. Our mission is to provide an open and accessible space for the ideas, knowledge and experience of experts, academics and activists from across the world, so that their voices can be heard by a global audience of citizens and decision-makers in order to find solutions to today’s international challenges.
The FPC has a global perspective and a focus on Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and Asia. We also seek to examine what a progressive, pragmatic and internationalist foreign policy for the UK could be. A commitment to democracy, human rights, good governance and conflict resolution is at the heart of our work. We do this through delivering high quality research and events. The organisation is currently set up as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.
