The position:

The Supervisory Board is responsible for supervising the development and execution of the vision, mission, and strategy, for supervising engagement of the most important stakeholder groups, including young people and donors, and for supervising adequate risk management. The board is the direct employer of the CEO, and therefore responsible for recruitment, performance evaluation, and dismissal. The board also has a coaching, sparring and advisory role to the CEO and the leadership team.

The Supervisory Board members are appointed for a period of four years, with a potential second term of four years. They are in regular contact with each other and hold formal meetings approximately six times per year. These meetings require a certain amount of preparation time.

In addition, you could be asked to participate in specific committees like the Audit, or Remuneration Committee. In a “normal situation”, a member of the Supervisory Board spends about four hours per month on work for RNW Media. In the beginning, the time spent might be higher due to the need to get acquainted with RNW Media and the Supervisory Board.

Physically, the meetings will take place in Hilversum, the Netherlands, but depending on the location of Supervisory Board Members, participation by video conference is possible as well.

All members of the Supervisory Board act on a voluntary basis. Expenses will be paid (e.g. if travelling on RNW Media business).
