The Marr-Munning Trust is an independent grantmaking charity and our vision is a world of empowered people free from poverty. We make grants totalling £360,000 a year to charities/NGOs - currently focusing our support on the education of children and improving people’s ability to earn a sustainable income.
Structure and Governance:
The charity was established in 1970 by Frank Harcourt-Munning – “for the relief of poverty, suffering and distress” overseas. He placed everything he had into the Trust, including his own home and all his other properties and spare cash, and he then spent the remaining years of his life running the Trust until his death in 1985.
The Trust now derives the majority of its income from a residential property portfolio which it manages with the help of a managing agent.
As we are an incorporated charity (ie both a charity and a company limited by guarantee) the people appointed under this recruitment process will become trustees and company directors.
What We Are Looking For:
We are looking for an experienced finance professional who can help us to achieve our mission and ensure the organisation is effectively managed. You must be able to make a commitment to the Trust and devote the necessary time to the role - as well as have strategic vision, independent judgement, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to speak your mind. As well as all the duties and responsibilities of a Trustee the Treasurer will also have specific additional responsibilities.

We are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees and we welcome appropriately qualified applications from all sections of the community.
We would also welcome applications from suitably qualified people who live or work close to our office near Ealing Broadway, West London.
