IIED works for social and environmental justice. Our mission is to build a fairer, more sustainable world, using evidence, action and influence in partnership with others. Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. We harness the power of our networks — from grassroots communities to multilateral institutions — to mobilise action at local, national and global levels. We work with our partners to influence policy and practice, always keeping our focus on amplifying the views and voices of the countries, communities and people living on the front lines. We are a global organisation navigating a changing context for international development and research, in a world learning to cope with the impacts of COVID-19 while responding to the climate, biodiversity and inequality crises. Our work is more important and more relevant than ever, and we will continue to innovate, evolve and look for partnerships and initiatives that can make a difference.

Who we are looking for:
Our international board represents all the major regions where we work or have important partnerships. We are looking for two trustees, based and qualified in the UK in law and accountancy and who have experience of working or interest in international environment and development. We are seeking people with wide-ranging strategic experience who have ideally fulfilled a trustee role in a not-for-profit organisation previously. The ideal candidates will have a very good understanding of IIED’s area of business, would be able to clearly articulate our mission and values and demonstrate how they can contribute towards steering the
organisation through the challenges ahead.
