Role

Treasurer & Trustee

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. We’ve a small, passionate team working from our office in Bethnal Green, and huge ambition.  We are a comparatively small charity, with an annual income averaging £200K.

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.
