The Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development actively supports international cultural co-operation with qualified partners in areas and places where it is really needed, mostly in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. The Fund fights for preservation of culture and supports sustainable cultural processes. In addition, it initiates activities to increase awareness of the importance of culture and development in daily life. The Fund, in the spirit of Prince Claus, acts in the belief that people are not developed but they develop themselves. The Prince Claus Fund is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Postcode Lottery.

The Prince Claus Fund has its office in Amsterdam and has its own exhibition space and an extensive documentation centre. There are approximately 20 employees (15 FTE) associated with the Fund. It is an international network whose main languages are English and Dutch, but French and Spanish are also heard frequently because of the Fund’s global network.

Job description

As Director you will be responsible for directing the daily operations of the Fund. In this task you will be supported by the leaders of the Fund’s main programmes and the operations manager.

You will support and demonstrate the vision of the Fund (Vision paper 2011-2015), develop a strategy to reach the Fund’s goals and give substantive guidance to the organisation. You will be actively involved in co-operation with partners and the network of the Fund. You will represent the Fund and take responsibility for adequate external communications and publicity. You will maintain relations with relevant agencies and important organisations.

Knowledge and expertise in managing financial affairs is indispensable due to the fact that the Fund must constantly justify the spending of funds. You shall in particular ensure fundraising and maintain contact with sponsors.

Together with the business manager, you will make sure the organisation is run professionally (including budget, annual reports, personnel, planning, procurement, housing, preparation and report of Board meetings etc).

As a creative and independent initiator you will contribute to the further development and expansion of the Fund. Strengthening the international network and ensuring regular publicity in the leading international media will be among your focus points. You are enthusiastic and able to inspire people in the office, the network partners and others involved with the activities of the Fund. You will monitor operations and ensure that the Fund maintains high quality standards in all its activities and also preserves its innovative and independent position.

As Director, you are a policy consultant and adviser to the Board and the Advisory Council and ensure implementation of the Board’s decisions. You are the liaison between government, agency and society in the achieving of the Prince Claus Fund’s objectives.

The candidate

You have attained an academic education and have a great interest in and knowledge of both culture and development. Both areas, in particular their conjunction, are the core focus of the Fund. You have experience in leading, and in carrying the overall responsibility for, a small professional (part project) organisation.

You not only have a strong vision but really put ideas into action. You evoke creativity and personally come up with new initiatives. You establish new connections and inspire and stimulate others to share their ideas and to co-operate with the Fund. Above all and despite being a powerful and persuasive personality, you have great communication skills and you demonstrate tact and integrity in the performance of your duties.

You are used to working in an international environment and have an open mind to values, cultures and customs in the countries where the Fund operates. At the same time you have intimate knowledge of the Dutch administrative culture and social context. You have the ability to find the right balance and appropriate conduct to co-operate with a Board that acts at a distance from the daily operations but has some formal mandates and opinions based on expert knowledge in relevant areas.

Your English is fluent in both speaking and writing and you also have sufficient mastery of French or Spanish. The command of more languages (for example Dutch) is an advantage.

As an experienced manager you are able to competently manage the spending of funds and also ensure good accountability and governance of those expenditures. You have a basic understanding of financial information systems, modern communications and developments in the fields of PR and automation.

Conditions and remuneration

You will have a unique position that enables you to further develop your personal qualities and experience and to apply them in a relatively young organisation with high quality standards and an established reputation, executing a very special and interesting mission.

With a high degree of autonomy, but under governance and with the support of an expert Board, you will be in the lead to manage and represent the Fund. Due to the nature of the activities and the character of the international network you will travel on a regular basis, including visits to projects and network partners abroad. You will be in contact with a wide variety of people from different levels in organisations and society.

You will receive an appropriate benefits package (a gross annual income of around €80,000) in accordance with standards in the sector.
