All We Can is a pioneering international development, relief and advocacy organisation that believes in the power of partnership. It has its roots in the British Methodist Church and is inspired by Christian principles to focus on those in greatest need. It helps people to find solutions to poverty and become all that they can, by investing in partnerships that improve quality of life and create positive, long-term change in some of the world’s poorest communities.
The Board of Trustees of All We Can is currently seeking a new Chair, with a commitment to this mission and appropriate skills and time to offer. The Chair will provide leadership to the Board of Trustees, enabling them to fulfil their responsibilities for the overall governance and strategic direction of All We Can.
The last three years have been a time of review and transformation in the charity, with the successful development and launch of a new strategic direction and a new name and brand. All We Can has ambitious plans for the future, and to support this, the rganisation’s governance also needs to be highly effective and far sighted in outlook and to provide the right balance between challenge, championing and support.
Candidates will need to be able to commit at least 12 days a year, including quarterly daytime Board meetings in London.
