We would like applicants to:

  • Empathise with the vision, mission and aims of the charity
  • Demonstrate a willingness and ability to devote the required time and effort
  • Have experience of exercising sound and independent judgement
  • Be able to think and apply knowledge creatively and strategically
  • Keep themselves and the charity mission-focused
  • Be able to analyse and evaluate management information and other evidence in the execution of their duties

Trustees are required to commit to regular Board meetings held either via teleconferencing or at the charity’s offices in St Leonards-on-Sea. Please note that all Trustee roles are unremunerated although reasonable travel expenses are paid.

We would welcome applications from women and those from BAME backgrounds, as they are currently under-represented on the Board of Trustees. We are also keen to receive applications from alumni of the Pestalozzi UK programme.

How to apply

If you are interested in finding out more or wish to apply please send us your CV and a completed application form outlining your motivation for applying and how your skills and abilities match those of the trustees we are seeking.
