Job Description

We have a vacancy on our Trustee Board for a Treasurer to Chair our Finance Committee and lead performance reviews with our investment managers. We restructured our portfolio in 2018 (on a 5 year cycle) and during 2020 we will develop a foundation grant making strategy to enable us to expand our grant giving beyond that of assisting indivuduals to working with projects and other organisations.

Through this new work, we will be aiming to use engineering to prevent and relieve poverty (to complement preventing the poverty of engineers) through investing in edication and internatioanl developemnt initiatives.

The Treasurer will play a key role in helping to shape our funding agreements, especially where grants are to be awarded on a multi-year basis. We are looking for an individual who is keen to share their skills and experience and contribute to our enthusiasm.

The Treasurer will usually need to attend 4-6 meetings a year, which are currently held in Westminster during office hours (expenses are reimbursed), and the initial term of office is three years, with an optio nto restand for a furhter term of three years. The full Board is a maximum of 13 members, and we have 11 in post.
