The Rory Peck Trust is a registered charity providing practical and financial support to freelance journalists and their families worldwide, assisting them in times of crisis and helping them to work safely and professionally. It is the only organisation entirely dedicated to this work.
The Rory Peck Trust is independent and relies on income from grants, donations and sponsorship. The Trust works globally with a large network of local and international media and human rights partners. It is a non-profit and non-political organisation and sees its work to support freelancers as a practical and significant contribution to the independent journalism that is vital to freedom of expression.
The Trust is seeking applications for the role of Director. This is its most senior role, responsible for leading the organisation, managing its staff and implementing its policy and strategy.
The Director drives all the activity and operations including governance, finance, fundraising, grants, external communications and the Rory Peck Awards. A key priority is the requirement to maintain and develop the Trust’s network of media, NGO and funding relationships and partnerships as well as connecting with the worldwide community of freelancers.
The Director will be appointed by the Board of Trustees and will report directly to them. The Director leads a team of 13 staff and is supported in the leadership team by a Business Manager, Head of Programmes and Head of Communications.
This is a high profile role that requires representation of the Trust at all levels. Based in central London, it will require travel both in the UK and internationally. The successful candidate will join and lead a dynamic, creative and highly motivated multi national team.
