<http://www.phoenixislands.org/shownews.php?newsId=58> PIPA Trust Seeks an
Executive Director

A significant amount of the Executive Director’s time during the first three
years will be devoted to fundraising. The PIPA Trust seeks to raise $25
million USD for its endowment, with an interim target of $13.5 million of
that by the end of 2014. The Executive Director will prepare a fundraising
strategy, identify and meet with potential donors, develop proposals to
potential donors, negotiate the terms of grant agreements with donors, and
travel globally in connection with fundraising efforts.

In addition, the Executive Director will be responsible for the overall
management of the PIPA Trust, subject to the supervision and control of its
Board of Directors, which currently consists of representatives of the
Government of Kiribati, Conservation International and New England Aquarium..
The Executive Director will represent and promote the PIPA Trust’s interests
in dealings with the Government of Kiribati; local and international
conservation NGOs; local and international businesses that impact
biodiversity or are potential donors; multilateral and bilateral
international donor agencies; and local and international media. The
Executive Director will be responsible for the development and
implementation of long-term strategic plans, annual operating plans,
internal operations manuals and policies, and annual budgets for
consideration and approval by the PIPA Trust’s Board.

The Executive Director will be hired by the PIPA Trust for an initial
two-year appointment, subject to renewal on the basis of job performance.
Additional staff will be hired as the PIPA Trust’s endowment grows larger..
