Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Greenpeace Africa is pleased to announce the opening of the selection process for its Board of Directors. The Board of GPAf is looking for potential candidates to fill five (5) seats on the GPAf Board for a period of three years. Candidates that are interested and meet the requirements as outlined below are encouraged to apply. Greenpeace is an International NGO that was founded in 1971, when a small boat of volunteers and journalists sailed into Amchitka, an area north of Alaska where the US government was conducting underground nuclear tests. It was an act of rebellion against seemingly impossible odds. Greenpeace Africa was registered in 2008 as a Non-Profit Organisation in terms of the South Africa Companies Act, 71 of 2008. GPAf has its Head Office in South Africa and registered Hubs in Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon and Senegal. For the current search, the board requires nationals from Southern, East, Central and North Africa.
The selection process is open to anyone who shares Greenpeace’s core values and is genuinely willing and able to serve on the board on a volunteer basis.
Candidates must possess skills, knowledge, qualifications and experience in one or more of the following:
Candidates can send their comprehensive CV’s together with a cover letter summarizing how their profile aligns with the key requirements, skills and abilities of this role to the Lisa Garson at firstname.lastname@example.org, by August 2019.
