sharing in governance of extractive industries
The EITI is now accepting applications and nominations for the next Chair.
With almost 50 countries implementing the EITI across all major continents, the EITI has become the pre-eminent global standard for the governance of extractive resources. This is an outstanding opportunity to lead a high level Board that seeks to ensure that natural resource wealth becomes a key engine for sustainable growth for economic development and poverty reduction.
Role of the Chair

S/he seeks to maintain collaborative relationships between members and key participants, including governments, companies, civil society, and oversees, on behalf of the Board, the work of the Secretariat.
Term of engagement
The term of the Chair is the three year period between ordinary Members meetings, at which the whole Board is appointed. A Chair can serve a maximum of two terms. The present Chair, the Rt Hon Clare Short, is due to step down at the next Members meeting in early 2016.
The Chair is expected to have the following background and skills:
The previous Chairs have worked role pro-bono but alternative arrangements could be considered. All work-related expenses will be covered. A dedicated office including an executive assistant and necessary office and communications equipment could be considered.
