Salary: Unpaid voluntary role

The Science Media Centre is looking for a new treasurer who would enjoy helping the SMC remain a well-governed and financially secure organisation. This is an unpaid voluntary role. The successful applicant will become an ordinary Trustee in October 2022 and will spend a full year taking part in the organisation’s activities in that role and shadowing the current position holder before becoming Treasurer themselves in October 2023.

The Treasurer is not involved in the day-to-day running of the SMC. The role is instead about overarching financial governance, oversight and advice, including investment and budgets. The successful candidate will have proven interest and expertise in financial management or financial governance. Experience dealing with budgets would be advantageous, as would some familiarity with profit and loss accounts and balance sheets.

Applications are invited from anyone who would like to be considered. We particularly welcome applications from those at an earlier career stage or others who are often overlooked for similar positions.
