FRANK Water is a Bristol based social enterprise and international development charity with a vision of sustainable access to safe water for all.
Our international mission is to deliver sustainable access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for the hardest to reach people in India & Nepal, we’re committed to developing emergent, adaptive strategies, models and approaches for maximum impact and longevity, improving health and wellbeing and saving lives.
Our UK mission is to be an innovative social enterprise dedicated to raising visibility of, and funds for, our international WASH programmes in India and Nepal through ethical, sustainable business practice, raising funds and gaining visibility through selling water related products and services in the UK
We change behaviours and advance knowledge through educating and influencing on WASH both in the UK and in India & Nepal.
We’ve just embarked on our 12th year! We’ve funded safe water and sanitation for more than 330,000 people across 200 communities and with big plans a-foot, we are seeking to appoint two exceptional individuals to our Board of Trustees, who have the skills, expertise, passion and commitment to make a significant contribution to the board, providing strategic vision and effective oversight for our international programme of work.
We are currently looking for two Trustees. It is hoped that at least one of the two appointments will be someone with demonstrable experience and skills in international development or the water sector either within the UK, India or Nepal.
Applicants will have a proven track record of success in their own area of expertise, an understanding of the principles and practice of good governance, have high standards of integrity and be able to promote and support FRANK Water where appropriate.
We are seeking approximately ten days commitment per year and a willingness to contribute to your own, other Trustees’ and the Board’s continuous development. The positions are unremunerated.
We would also welcome applications from qualified candidates who are under 40 years of age, or have Indian or Nepali heritage. This is because these groups are currently under represented on the board.
