Would you like to be the British Science Association's volunteer Treasurer?

We are looking for an individual to take the baton from our current treasurer, Valerie Marshall, who has done a fantastic job for almost five years. We are looking for someone who is excited by our vision and wants to use their understanding of financial management to help us get maximum value from our resources and drive the strategic direction of the organisation. 

Your role

As Treasurer, your role is to oversee the BSA’s financial affairs, ensuring we use our resources effectively in order to achieve our aims. This is a volunteer role and there is no salary; reasonable out of pocket expenses may be claimed on submission of appropriate documentation. Key areas for your immediate attention will include setting up a new Finance Committee and developing a new, risk-based Reserves Policy.

You will also be a member of Council and hence, a charity trustee. Therefore, together with the other members of Council, you will focus on the key issues, opportunities and risks facing the BSA, and provide guidance on strategic direction to the BSA’s staff. You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to the principles of effective governance and financial management in charities, and to the BSA’s goal of improving diversity & inclusivity.
