Job Description

The British Stammering Association is experiencing one of its most dynamic and exciting periods of activity in our 41 year history. Our Stamma campaign has been seen by over 5 million people with the charity’s membership steadily growing.

The Board is looking to appoint a Treasurer to help guide the organisation’s finances over the years ahead.  We aren’t necessarily looking for someone who stammers, but we are looking to recruit someone with a passion for the cause.

This position is unremunerated, although travel expenses can be covered.

The role would suit someone looking for experience in the charity governance sector.

  • Ideally some experience of charity finance, fundraising and pension schemes
  • The skills to analyse proposals and examine their financial consequences
  • Preparedness to make unpopular recommendations to the board
  • Willingness to be available to the CEO and Finance Officer for advice and enquiries on an ad hoc basis.
  • Experience of Sage accounting.
