Deki Trustee - Digital Marketing

Deki’s mission is to empower disadvantaged and marginalised communities with a hand up, not a hand out. We do this by providing small-scale ethical micro-loans, alongside specialised and appropriately tailored business training. We work with non-profit field partners in Ghana, South Africa, Togo, Malawi, Uganda and South Sudan to provide loans up to £450 for entrepreneurs who would not otherwise have access to financial resources.

Deki loans are enabling more and more entrepreneurs to achieve greater economic independence and security. Our clients use this income to support their extended families and to lift others around them out of poverty. We have found that each Deki loan on average has a positive impact on the lives of at least six people.

We are embarking on an ambitious strategy to lend £2m in 2020. We are looking to appoint a trustee to join our current board and would particularly welcome those with expertise, experience and relationships in:

  • Digital Marketing
  • Digital Fundraising
  • Crowdfunding

 As a trustee of the charity you will use strategic leadership skills, together with integrity, to lead Deki. You will be prepared to devote at least 10 days per year to the role.
