Primary Practice Group: Board
Salary & Benefits: Voluntary with travel reimbursement

We truly believe basic justice care for everyone is possible.
HiiL (The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law) is a civil society organisation committed to people-centred justice. That means justice that is affordable, accessible, and easy to understand. HiiL (pronounced “hill”) was founded in 2005 by a small but impassioned group of individuals who felt that justice systems were falling short and losing pace in a rapidly changing world. HiiL’s aim is to empower 150 million people to prevent and resolve their most pressing justice problems by 2030. HiiL is a pioneering and knowledge-driven organisation that works on both system change and concrete improvements. Internationally, we have led the co-development of people-centred justice programming, an integrated, evidence-based and innovation-driven approach to make justice systems produce more and better outcomes. HiiL helps implement this way of working. HiiL works internationally, with most projects currently in Africa and the MENA region.
HiiL is seeking two new, dynamic and highly strategic additions to their Supervisory Board - a Chair, and a Chair of the Finance and Organisation Committee. Both will play crucial roles in maintaining the effectiveness, innovation and vibrancy of HiiL, by guiding and co-creating strategy, approving budgets, serving as champions for the organisation, and advising them through significant growth and global programmes in its next chapter. The Chair will lead the Supervisory Board to ensure long-term, strategic oversight and governance, as well as effective working relationships across the wide range of stakeholders. The Chair of the Finance and Organisation Committee is currently also Vice-Chair of the Supervisory Board, and will crucially advise on aspects of HiiL’s financial stewardship, risk, accountability and integrity to ensure compliance with best-practice.
The ideal candidates will be able to demonstrate significant experience of organisational leadership, within a relevant, complex and ideally global setting. They will fundamentally appreciate the subtle differences between non-executive and executive leadership, providing inclusive advice to, and collaborating with, the Executive Board. Successful candidates will bring exceptional people and communication skills, integrity and excellent intellectual and analytical skills. Experience gained within countries where HiiL has people-centred justice programmes will be beneficial. The Chair of the Finance and Organisation Committee should specifically bring an extensive understanding of finance, risk and non-profit funding systems. Most importantly, the appointed Chair, and Chair of the Finance and Organisation Committee, will demonstrate a deep and genuine passion for HiiL’s mission, vision and programmes towards people-centred justice.

HiiL is based in the Netherlands, in the City of Peace and Justice, The Hague. Board meetings will mostly be held virtually, with one in-person meeting a year and reasonable travel expenses covered. The expected time commitment is 10-12 days a year.
