Want to be a Cara Trustee?

Oct 26 2023

Cara is looking for enthusiastic, engaged and collaborative individuals who want to make a distinctive contribution as Trustees to the continued success of Cara.

In recent years hundreds of threatened academics from around the world have been turning to Cara, seeking urgent help to get themselves and their families to safety in a place where they can continue their important academic work. The organisation has grown significantly in response.

Cara's Trustees support and give guidance to Cara's staff, as they manage this greatly increased demand in an increasingly complex and volatile world.  To be able to do this even more effectively, Cara is now seeking to appoint up to three additional Trustees to its governing Council.  Candidates will bring a passion for its mission and ideally senior-level expertise across one or more of the following areas: fundraising, marketing, international affairs or finance & audit.  However, candidates who feel they can contribute more broadly to the organisation beyond those categories are also encouraged to engage with the role. 

The deadline for registering an interest is 21 November 2023.  For more information, go to
