Job Specifications:

All applicants must have a passion for helping people that are disadvantaged, regardless of their social standing or circumstance.

Suitably qualified applicants from any part of Nepal will be considered on the understanding that they will be required to attend board meetings in Pokhara. The cost of travel on a "tourist coach" will be paid by the company and free accommodation will be provided in our guesthouse. If the non-executive director chooses to fly and stay elsewhere, he / she will be responsible for the difference in costs.

As a community interest company, our driving force is more about doing social good than making anyone more affluent.  As a consequence, the salaries, which are yet to be decided, of all directors, mine included, will follow a similar model to the one Ben & Jerry’s, the ice cream people adopted when they first set out. They set a reasonable differential between the highest earners and the lowest earners which meant that the highest earners earned no more than X times what the lowest earners earned.  The more profit our company makes, the more people it can help.  Please note that the figure of NPR12,345 is not a literal salary, it is simply a space filler.

We will be completely transparent in our finances so every paisa / penny we earn will be declared both in Nepal and the UK so that the appropriate amount of corporate tax is paid in both countries.

We are not currently in a position to offer a start date as we are still in the process of securing grant funding. As soon as we obtain grant funding, we will be able to offer a start date. My hope is that we will open in the latter part of 2018.

Applicants that are qualified and/or experienced in finance and marketing are particularly welcomed.

Shortlisted applicants must be able to attend an interview in Pokhara or Kathmandu in December.
