We are seeking to recruit a number of new trustees to join the Board and the organisation.  This is key point in Cord’s history as we focus the charity on growth, expanding our networks and delivering our updated strategy.  We are particulary interested in candidates who have current experience in the following areas:

  • Finance (Chair of finance Committee)
  • Law
  • Human Resources
  • Knowledge/experience of Cord's Countries of Operation 

 We have an exciting strategy and pages 2 – 4 describe why Cord is relevant to our world, our recent achievements and our values.

Trustees are asked for a time commitment of around 4 Full days per year. Principal commitments are attending the Board Meetings (four a year) in Coventry, plus reading for each meeting and travel time.

There is also a monthly board teleconference that lasts an hour that trustees should attend.

Cord is governed by a Board whose members are the Directors of the Company and Trustees of the Charity, and who support the operational growth of the organisation through deliberation, prayer and decision-making. There is a genuine and determining occupational requirement (under the Equality Act 2010) that Cord’s Trustees are Christian.

The Board is seeking to ensure that it has members with expertise relevant to Cord and that there is diversity in respect of gender, ethnic and denominational backgrounds. 

Board membership is not a remunerated position and reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. Board meetings are held in Coventry and via monthly Skype call in the evening.

Full details about the role are in the recruitment pack .

To apply for this role, having read the recruitment pack please submit a letter of motivation and CV to [email protected] by 30th May 2021
