Traidcraft is a Christian response to poverty. We are one of the UK’s leading fair trade organisations (through our trading arm Traidcraft plc) and a development agency (Traidcraft Exchange) specialising in wider approaches to reducing poverty through trade.
Traidcraft’s Board is currently seeking to identify up to 3 new non-executive directors. Each non-executive director is both a director of Traidcraft plc and a director of Traidcraft Exchange. To complement the existing skills on the Board, candidates are sought with a strong background or expertise in one or more of Fair Trade, Retail, Trade Justice, Fundraising (particularly corporates, major donors, trusts and digital fundraising experience), programme/policy expertise in the areas of trade and environment and economic empowerment of women, supply chain consultancy, finance and governance, ideally with a proven track record in a senior leadership position within a commercial or charitable organisation.
Experience of international trade, supply chains and commodities trading within the Fair Trade or other certification system, would be helpful, but is not essential. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a passion for Traidcraft’s mission, and to comply with our governance requirements must also be practising Christians.
To apply, please submit your CV and a covering letter which explains in no more than 500 words why you want to be a non-executive director for Traidcraft and what makes you the ideal candidate for the role to email@example.com by noon on Monday 26th February 2018.
