Are you full of great ideas? Do you want to share them? And learn from others?

Help us create a positive change in the African Kingdom of Lesotho – and  here in Wales by becoming our Digital Trustee.

What will you be doing?

Can you help us plan our digital strategy?  Identify digital skill gaps? 

We’d like to learn from your experience – and have you expose us to new ideas, approaches and techniques. We’re particularly looking for people who can share their experience in digital marketing and fundraising. We are a registered charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee and we need you as a Digital Trustee!

Working alongside the Chair and Executive Director you will :

  • Provide thought leadership on the role of digital in your charity’s fundraising and marketing and help build and implement this vision.
  • Highlight the opportunities and the risks of digital, in terms of our strategy in general, and in reference to cross country working in particular.
  • Translate the risks and opportunities of digital for other trustees, to enable the board as a whole to engage in an informed way.
  • Take the lead in evaluating proposals for a new fundraising platform for the board
  • Provide strategic oversight of any new digital implementations.
  • Champion the use of data in board discussions, and in driving the delivery and improvement of fundraising and marketing
  • Lead a digital ‘sub-group’ of the Board if required
  • Draw on your networks to support our work.
  • Help ensure that the executive / operations teams have the digital capabilities that they need to implement the strategy.

As a small charity every Trustee has an important role to play in shaping the organisation and creating opportunities. Yes we want a Digital Trustee but we also want a person committed to our cause who can help us plan strategically to ensure a sustainable future.

What are we looking for?

  • Successful track record in digital marketing or product development
  • Experience of working at a senior management / leadership level.
  • Experience of current agile project management practices, open source, cloud platforms and digital services.
  • Ability to work as part of a team and willingness to take collective responsibility for the governance of our charity.
  • Ability to work at a strategic and visionary level whilst understanding the detail and complexities of delivery, and the influencing skills needed to bring staff and stakeholders along with plans.
  • Strong communicator.
  • Ability to analyse risks and opportunities, and take a balanced approach to both.
  • Extensive networks, and a willingness to draw on contacts as appropriate.

What difference will you make?

We already believe that Dolen punches above its weight, but we want to do more.  In education, mental health, sanitation and hygiene, well-being and life-skills through sport we are really making a difference in the small African Kingdom of Lesotho.  We need to improve our digital  working in order to do even more.  We need your help to increase our reach so that we can work with our partners to make sustainable changes in their lives.

You’d get to share your skills to improve the lives of people in the small southern African Kingdom of Lesotho. You’d get to meet new people and expand your network of contacts in a friendly environment.  We may be small bit our impact is big and could be even bigger if you come and join us.
