Who we are

The Marie Colvin Journalists’ Network (MCJN) is a small, recently-registered UK charity that provides professional development and essential assistance to women journalists from across the Arab region, supporting them to thrive in their careers as they confront discrimination, violence and curbs on freedom of speech. Our support includes the provision of mentorships, professional advice, Arabic-language resources and opportunities, networking and referrals.


The role

The right candidate will play an active role in the overall governance and administration of our small and dynamic charity, playing an essential part in ensuring we continue to expand and strengthen our impact sustainably and effectively.

We expect you to have an eye for detail and a keen understanding of managing budgets and financial procedures, as well as a demonstrable interest in supporting journalism in difficult contexts. Working in regular coordination with MCJN’s Executive Director, you would be expected to maintain an overview of MCJN’s financial affairs, ensure its financial viability and ensure that proper financial records and procedures are maintained.

MCJN is seeking to build an expert and diverse board that can ensure our organisation is well run and making the right strategic decisions. To that end, we’re looking for candidates with any relevant experience from the corporate, media or charity sector and at all stages in their career who would like to be a part of our board.
