We are seeking new Trustees to join the Board of Trustees of PBI UK.

This role provides a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into the management, governance and legal obligations of an international Non-Governmental Organisation while contributing significantly to its impact.

The key components of the role are:

  • To guide and support PBI UK’s Director in maintaining a long-term overview of the organisation and all its work;
  • To make strategic decisions about the organisation’s mission, objectives, policies and procedures;
  • To ensure the needs and interests of relevant people and bodies are taken into account when making decisions;
  • To ensure adequate resources are in place to carry out the country group’s activities;
  • To monitor the work of the organisation, especially progress towards objectives;
  • To ensure appropriate action is taken when work is not being done, or is not being done properly;
  • To ensure that PBI UK meets legal and charity obligations

Essential skills include:

  • Significant experience in human resources;
  • Demonstrable knowledge and experience of employment legislation and practice;
  • Understanding of worker and volunteer well-being;
  • Understanding of Diversity and Inclusion and adapting best practices to multiple professional contexts;
  • Good communication skills;

Desirable skills include:

  • Some knowledge of PBI UK and wider PBI structure, history, principles and mandate;
  • Familiarity or willingness to learn about consensus-based decision-making;
  • Political awareness and familiarity with global issues relating to peace and human rights;
  • Experience of trusteeship or similar voluntary roles involving oversight and governance.
  • Knowledge in Personnel, Human Resources or Employment Law, or Charity governance or charity law.

The Board of Trustees work together and trustees are supported by other members of the Board as well as the PBI UK team.

Trustees gain a great insight into the strategy and work of PBI UK and believe that this trustee role is an opportunity to gain insight into the human resources needs and obligations of a small charity, as well as other areas of its work.

The Board meets once every eight weeks. Meetings generally start around 6:30 pm and last approximately 2 hours. Between meetings, there is usually email communication and Trustees work on the action points agreed in the meetings.
