• Conducting research on this topic.
• Creating a sustainable model of training and service delivery which can be directed, owned, and managed locally, and that can be continued successfully with minimal external support.

What are they looking for?

Experienced person sought as Treasurer of Zambia Therapeutic Art (ZTA) to be responsible for our finances, day to day bookkeeping and our accounts. We are also hoping that you have experience in monitoring and evaluation. ZTA is well managed and currently operates using very limited resources and a huge amount of goodwill and commitment from our trustees, volunteers and partners. Our board is made up of people with a variety of backgrounds and experiences who share a passion for our work. We enjoy what we do, and believe we make a difference. We face many challenges and always seek positive, practical and effective solutions.We are looking for a trustee with finance skills (or able to acquire them) but also the willingness and enthusiasm to develop new skills where necessary. Experience of knowledge of art therapy and metal health is helpful, as is experience or an interest in Sub-Saharan Africa, but these are not a pre-requisite.
