Vacancies at Embrace

Trustee vacancies

Embrace the Middle East is looking for two new Trustees to sit on our Board. 

We are in the second year of implementing Faith in Action, our five year strategic plan (to 2020) which envisages significant growth in the charity from our current annual income level of around £4 million. Our aim is not growth for its own sake, but so that we can better respond to the enormous challenges facing our partners across the Middle East. 

Meeting four times a year, usually at our head office in Amersham (Buckinghamshire), and with some additional committee work, the Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance, monitoring and strategic direction of the charity. It works with management to ensure that the charity fulfils the objects defined in its articles and acts in accordance with the charity’s vision and mission, and complies with relevant legal and regulatory requirements.

Having conducted a review of the skills within the current Board, we are now looking for trustees with expertise in the following areas: business/trading, fundraising and charity governance

As a Christian charity, and in accordance with our Articles of Association, trustees must be practising Christians. 

Applications need to be received by midday Friday 18 August.

Interviews will be held in early September.
