The UK Director of Islamic Relief, Jehangir Malik, stepped down from his role last month after 23 years at the organisation.
Malik, who has headed the international development charity for eight years, has joined International Inspiration, a charity that forms part of the Olympic Legacy.
Malik started as an Islamic Relief volunteer back in 1992 and became national fundraising director in 2003, before being promoted to UK director in 2006.
He said he is departing now after a “wonderfully long and lengthy career” at the charity, feeling he is leaving the organisation in good hands, and said he is ready to go on and try something new.
The role of interim UK Director at Islamic Relief UK is being taken up by Imran Madden, who is currently head of the humanitarian department at Islamic Relief Worldwide.
Madden said of his appointment: “I’m very excited about this role. Jehangir has left a big legacy from his time at Islamic Relief, and I’m looking forward to building on the great work of Jehangir and his team.”
“I wish Jehangir all the best in his new job, and look forward to getting to grips with the challenges of running a large aid agency working on some of the most pressing emergencies in the world today.”
