Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF)

MSF Trustee

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) provides life-saving emergency relief and longer-term medical care to some of the most vulnerable and excluded communities around the world. As an independent medical humanitarian organisation, we deliver care based only on need, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, religion or political affiliation.

Our commitment to maintain a board with the necessary skills to govern MSF effectively and our commitment to be an inclusive board with diverse voices, we welcome candidacy from people who identify as members of underrepresented and/or historically marginalized communities to stand for election to the Board. This includes welcoming candidacy from lived experiences such as being a recipient of humanitarian care and/or recent migrants.

The responsibilities of a trustee are substantial, essential and both an honour and reward to fulfil.

Together, the MSF Ireland Board shares ultimate responsibility for the affairs and management of MSF Ireland. It not only ensures that MSF Ireland maintains its focus on our core mission of effective delivery of medical care in accordance with MSF’s core principles and values, but also that MSF Ireland conducts its business in an effective and efficient manner; with due care, accountability, responsible management of resources and in compliance with all Irish legal and regulatory requirements.

These are heavy responsibilities for which you can be liable, and, beyond reasonable expenses, you will not receive financial compensation. However, working together with other Board members, the MSF Ireland team and colleagues across the MSF movement is a rewarding and powerful way to continue saving lives and alleviating suffering.

Deadline for application;
