Vacancies: Embrace the Middle East Trustees

Embrace the Middle East is looking for two new trustees to serve as Board members, initially for a three-year term (renewable for a further two terms maximum). The charity is in the final year of the current five-year strategic plan and has begun planning for the next five-year period. Our primary goal will be to develop and grow in order to better support our partners as they respond to the enormous challenges facing displaced, marginalised and excluded communities in the Middle East. 

Meeting four times a year, in central London, or at our offices 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 its objects as defined in its Articles, 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 membership, we are especially interested to hear from potential trustees with expertise and experience in the following areas: theology, ecumenical relations (particularly with the Eastern churches living or working in the Middle East), public relations and marketing, the Middle East Christian diaspora in the United Kingdom. As a Christian charity, and in accordance with our Articles of Association, trustees should be practising Christians. 

We would be pleased to receive expressions of interest at this stage; email
