Job Description

Board of Trustees - Treasurer

Platform is a research and advocacy organisation with a focus on energy system change. Our current campaigns focus on the social, economic and environmental impacts of the global oil industry and building for a just transition.

The organisation is led by the staff in a distributed leadership model where the direction and strategy are decided collectively. We self-manage issues through a Management group, which is a subset of the staff with its membership rotating regularly. But of course, Platform’s success over the past 30 years wouldn’t be possible without our incredible Trustee board! 

Our Trustees meet four times a year, and we have excellent retention, with the average tenure of trusteeship being 6 years. We're currently looking to enlarge and diversify our board. 

We are looking for someone with financial expertise, preferably a qualified accountant. You should be interested in supporting the development of Platform's aims, both through strategic input and specific advice based on your background and experience. 

If you think your skills and interests could be a good fit for this role please send a C.V. and a covering letter to Recruitment would involve a short interview with members of staff, followed by an interview with the current Trustee board so that everyone - yourself, staff and current trustees - can assess whether they feel it will be a good fit. If you have any questions about the role, please email Sarah at
