VACANCY ALERT: Trustee with focus on Volunteer Management
We a seeking someone who can develop and deliver a strong volunteer management strategy so that we can fulfil our purpose to provide education to the communities in Kenya (and potentially throughout Africa). Working from home, you will be the lead Trustee for volunteer management, helping us to create and develop strong volunteer fundraising groups across the UK. This is a blank canvas for you to work from!
As one of five Trustees (who are based across England and Wales), you will also be responsible for the overall management of the charity, including setting its future direction. The Trustees regularly communicate using Microsoft Teams, email and WhatsApp. We also try and meet face-to-face once a year. Reasonably incurred expenses will be reimbursed.
What skills are we looking for?
Vital: volunteer management and project management
Useful: knowledge or interest in education and Kenya or Africa.
What difference will you make?
We are looking to build a new primary school in the Kangawa area of Ngong, Kenya. Your work will help us to achieve this and provide primary education for local children (who are currently denied the opportunity) and literacy classes and vocational training to the local community.
What's in it me?
This is an exciting opportunity to get involved at the start of the project and see through to its delivery. Depending on funding there will be opportunities, if you wish, to visit Kenya to check on the progress of the project delivery (construction work etc) as well as celebrating the school opening. This project is a real opportunity to make a difference in children's lives and empower the local community in bettering their lives.
