Are you looking for a new challenge and to make a difference in the world? We have an exciting opportunity to Join ATE’s Board as Vice Chair of Trustees.

Action Through Enterprise (charity number 1149988) was cofounded in 2012 by the Chief Executive in post, and is an exciting, fast-growing small charity aiming to reduce poverty in Lawra, Upper West Region, Ghana. We deliver a range of innovative programmes through our strategic Hub Model which dovetails our work in education, economic development and support to disabled children to create sustainable long-term change in rural communities. We have a highly skilled team of committed employees, clear strategic direction, a track record of outstanding poverty reduction work and a robust financial history. We are an exciting and secure small charity.

ATE is seeking a passionate, extremely capable person to join our well-established board of trustees as Vice Chair. This is a really exciting opportunity for a committed, knowledgeable leader to make a meaningful difference to our dynamic charity at a time of exciting development.

Vice Chair is a new role in ATE, focussed on strengthening ATE’s strategic leadership, governance, external relations, efficiency and effectiveness. The creation of the role is an important part of ATE trustee succession planning, with the Vice Chair also serving as Chair-elect and line manager of the Chief Executive.
Candidates must demonstrate leadership skills and overall commitment and have a real interest in poverty reduction, be able to grasp and contribute to strategic thinking and be able to work collaboratively with others to help the charity to achieve its aims. A key aspect of this role is line management of the Chief Executive so experience in management of people is a must.
