Job Details

London (Farrington)
Voluntary, unpaid
Reasonable travel expenses paid

Since 1990, PI has been working to promote the human right of privacy throughout the world. We investigate the secret world of government surveillance and expose the companies enabling it. We litigate to ensure that surveillance is consistent with the rule of law. We advocate for strong national, regional, and international laws that protect privacy. We conduct research to catalyse policy change. We raise awareness about technologies and laws that place privacy at risk, to ensure that the public is informed and engaged. To ensure that this right is universally respected, we strengthen the capacity of our partners in developing countries and work with international organisations to protect the most vulnerable.

The Board

The primary responsibility of the Board is to provide strategic leadership for the organisation by formulating and regularly reviewing its strategic aims in consultation with the senior staff, setting overall policy, regularly evaluating the charity's performance and ensuring that it complies with UK law.

Treasurer role

Due to the end of their term, The Board now seeks to recruit a Treasurer with senior financial management or audit experience, to chair the Finance and Audit Committee and provide support for the internal finance function at Privacy International.
Required for this role:

* Charity finance: Demonstrates excellent financial analysis skills, preferably at a senior strategic level, having led a finance function, or sat on the board of a charitable organisation. The Treasurer will need to be a qualified accountant (charity SoRP experience is strongly desirable)

* Trustee ready: Sitting on a trustee board requires the ability to take a more advisory approach than in executive roles. If you have not previously held any trustee or non-executive positions, you should be able to demonstrate a track record of influencing the direction of your organisation at board level.

* Commitment to the organization's aims, objectives and values.
Time commitment

Privacy International's Board of Trustees meets four times a year, including one full Away Day. Meetings take place in London and occasionally we might be able to cover travel. However, Board members based outside of the UK have the option of participating by teleconference.

The fulfilment of Trustees' duties is unlikely to exceed 10 hours per month, more if serving on one of the Board's committees.

The closing date for applications is 9am Wednesday 25th November 2020. To find out more about this role, please contact Brigitte Stundner at TPP Recruitment: or 0207 198 6060.
