Conciliation Resources

Conciliation Resources is looking for new Trustees to join our Board, and help provide leadership and strategic development to the organisation at a time when our peacebuilding work is more vital than ever.

At Conciliation Resources, we renew our Board membership on a rolling basis and are currently seeking up to three new Trustees (Board members) to take up this unpaid voluntary position. We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals with lived experience, professional expertise or a passion for peacebuilding, and individuals with finance, legal, business or fundraising experience.

We strongly encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. We are particularly keen to hear from younger adults and people from (or currently based in) Africa or Asia. We are committed to having inclusive representation and global perspectives on our Board and to ensuring diversity and gender equality within our organisation in order to ensure dynamism at the heart of the organisation.

Each Trustee makes a unique individual contribution. We also welcome applications from people who have not previously served as a Trustee at all. If you are new to the idea of being a Trustee we will provide support and training to enable you to take on the responsibilities of the role. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss.

Our organisation is guided by our Board, which is responsible for the governance and strategic direction of the charity. Being a Conciliation Resources Trustee is an influential and valuable role and you will make an important contribution to our peacebuilding work, our institutional security, and our future direction. This is an opportunity to contribute to and learn from a leading peacebuilding organisation.

Conciliation Resources’ work is vital in a world of ever more complex conflict. Trustees are essential to the wellbeing of the organisation and we look forward to new colleagues who will bring passion, knowledge and diversity to our work.


Chair, Conciliation Resources

Time Commitment

To fulfil the role effectively, it is expected that the time requirement will be 8-10 days per year. There are usually four Board meetings a year, one of which can be extended to include a staff retreat with all staff (Board meetings are held in a hybrid format – in person in London and online). Trustees also join one of our Board sub-committees (Risk and Audit, Keeping People Safe, Diversity and Inclusion). The term of office is three years and the maximum number of consecutive terms is two.
