Call for applicants to join our board

FDSD is a London-based think tank that explores the critical links between flourishing democracy and sustainable development. Through research, advocacy and dialogue, we build the evidence and make the connections needed to secure fairness for all and a healthy environment, now and in the future.

Trustees play an active role in the organisations’ activities, including writing articles, contributing content for our website and bulletin, as well as coordinating events.

We are seeking to recruit two or three new members to our committed Board of TrusteesIf you have a professional background or significant experience in marketing and communications, fundraising or social justice and environmental sustainability, we’d love to hear from you.

You will work with others on the Board who come with various backgrounds and have a shared commitment to enhancing democracy and sustainable development. We are particularly keen to speak to candidates who:

  • can help us to further develop our marketing and communications strategy, help enhance our online presence and extend our reach among key audiences;
  • can help us with our fundraising strategy, in particular our knowledge and understanding of funding bodies that would support aspects of our work
  • can help us extend our knowledge and understanding of the challenges of realising social justice and/or environmental sustainability and our reach to key organisations working within those areas

Trustees are expected to attend about four evening meetings a year, in London. It would be desirable if candidates are active social media users (with ideally a good on-topic audience).

If this opportunity interests you, please get in touch with Graham Smith (Chair of the Board): Graham.Smith@fdsd.org. The closing date for applications: Friday 29 March 2019.
