UKFIET Trustee Recruitment 2024

UKFIET is looking to appoint up to two new trustees. These opportunities have arisen as  current trustees are coming to the end of their term. The job description can be downloaded here.

We are committed to ensuring our trustees are representative of the constituencies we serve and bring a diversity of backgrounds, experiences and skills in international education. We are looking especially for people with financial expertise and / or expertise in charity governance but also interested in people with a broad skill set.

We are keen to ensure that we continue to build a diverse board, especially in relation to ethnicity, sex and age, as well as in relation to other protected characteristics. All trustees are expected to have an interest in the work of UKFIET and some knowledge of our activities. (Applicants from previous years are encouraged to reapply this year.)

See here for more information on UKFIET, our membership, and our current trustees.
