Why we are looking for a Trustee
Muslim Aid is looking for a new trustee to advise the Board on Human Resource Strategy.
The Board of Trustees currently comprises seven members and we are now hoping to recruit an additional member with a background in Human Resources who is in tune with our mission and values in joining a leading Muslim international humanitarian and development organisation. The candidate must have the drive and competences to help position Muslim Aid as a forward thinking member of international civil society rooted in its Muslim identity.
Candidates should have a good understanding of contemporary charitable activity in the UK and internationally and will help the Board develop our strategic aims and provide insight and support to achieve these aims - to constructively challenge our executive management team and to provide robust governance.
We are also looking to ensure a diverse make-up of the new Board in terms of gender and international linkages. We are also looking for an individual who can bring commitment, enthusiasm, creativity and thoroughness to the governance function. An ability to attend quarterly board meetings is a requirement. While implementation of strategic decisions of the Board will largely be in the hands of the CEO and senior management team, there may also be a need for some trustees to be involved in committees for established for specific purposes.
There are big challenges ahead, but we have the passion, belief and ambition to meet them. If you share our belief and commitment to improving the lives of those in need, we very much look forward to hearing from you and perhaps, welcoming you on board.
You will serve as a Trustee of Muslim Aid to ensure the highest standards of governance in policies and practice related to employee relations, recruitment and retention. To assess risks and measuring the impact of HR interventions in the light of challenging legal requirements and best practice. Ensuring that the charity successfully pursues its vision and objectives whilst acting within its constraints and responsibilities.
The next step
Muslim Aid is seeking applications across all sectors of society, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity but wishes to encourage applications from women on the basis that they are underrepresented on the board of trustees.
