Who we are
We are one of the world's leading humanitarian and development charities. By 2020, CARE and our partners will support 150 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice. We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year. We put women and girls in the centre because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We believe strongly that business has an important role to play in creating opportunities and reducing barriers for people living in poverty and would like to invite you to be a part of making this change happen.
To support this new strategic phase, we need a Trustee who can add significant enthusiasm, expertise and strategic value. We are looking for someone who is creative, innovative and dynamic and who will bring fresh thinking and new perspectives to our Board.
We want to attract someone with professional charity fundraising expertise, particularly philanthropy, major donor and partnerships experience, as well as strong digital skills.
With the diversity of our work globally, we must ensure that our Board continues to reflect the range of people, societies and cultures that we work in. As such we are seeking people with a broader range of perspectives including those with disabilities, people who identify as LGBT, young people and people from varied ethnic backgrounds. People with experience of living or working in developing countries and with insights into the culture, health, education and political environments in such countries are also highly desirable.
You will be passionate about supporting people to support themselves, creating opportunities and reducing barriers for people while creating change to ensure that all people are equal. We would like to invite you to be a part of making this change happen by joining our Board and supporting us on our journey of change and development.
