The International Pole & Line Foundation works to demonstrate and develop the contribution of one-by-one tuna fisheries to the coastal communities that are reliant upon them.
From a number of key international locations, we engage across science, policy and the food supply chain to progress the market aspirations of those coastal communities that adhere to environmentally and socially responsible fishing methods, including pole-and-line, troll and handline.
The people who work for us in full-time and part-time roles are central to our success. We therefore seek to recruit talented, passionate and hardworking individuals who share our motivation to make a difference.
Trusteeship and chair:
We are currently looking to grow the charity’s board, by bringing on trustees with a range of skills and senior business experience, including in strategic organisational leadership, ﬁnancial management, eﬀective governance, and corporate communications.
Potential trustees will be expected to provide wise counsel and constructive challenge to the Managing Director and senior management team and operate with mutual respect and co-operation.
Board membership oﬀers an exciting opportunity to help guide and support IPNLF’s rapid global expansion. We are seeking to appoint highly motivated individual(s) that will provide valuable contributions to support IPNLF in achieving its organisational mission and delivering on its organisational strategy.
Successful candidate(s) will be pragmatic and resourceful, proactive in networking, and entrepreneurial in identifying and nurturing opportunities for potential future conservation funding partnerships.
We are looking for board members with excellent partnership development experience, a high degree of emotional intelligence, and sensitivity to the needs and interests of IPNLF’s partner communities and stakeholders.
As part of this broader board development, we are also looking to recruit a chair designate to the board, to identify a trustee to take on leadership of the board after fulfillment of our current chair’s tenure. The chair will be responsible for leading the board and managing the working relationship between the board of trustees and IPNLF’s senior management team, as well as with external stakeholders. The chair will also act as a spokesperson and figurehead of the organisation, as appropriate, and will supervise and support the IPNLF’s Managing Director.
