Treasurer for Surrey Wildlife Trust - Volunteer Role

Location of Meetings: Nower Wood KT22 8QA or Pirbright GU24 0JN

Surrey Wildlife Trust is the only local organisation dedicated to ensuring Surrey is a place where both abundant wildlife and people can live and thrive together.

We are simply all about connecting nature.

We are looking for a new Treasurer with strategic vision, independent judgement and a willingness to commit to contributing to the leadership of the charity as we move forward with our mission. We are connecting nature across the county, empowering partners to make this transition and rebuilding biodiversity in abundance.

Our Treasurer will be stepping down at our AGM in November. The Treasurer oversees the financial matters of the charity and works in co-operation with our experienced Director of Finance to ensure good financial planning and reporting. Trustees are appointed for three years and may be appointed for two subsequent terms. The Board of Trustees meets in alternate months, as does the Finance Committee, usually on a Monday evening, and the Treasurer is a full member of the Board.

If you work well in a team, ideally have an understanding of Charities SORP and can commit the necessary time to work with motivated, passionate, wildlife friendly nature professionals, please send a covering letter and CV by email to [email protected]. If you wish to do so, we can arrange for an informal chat with a current Trustee or the Finance Director to give you some context and background. Closing date for applications is 15th July 2022.

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage applications for both paid and volunteer positions from backgrounds which may be underrepresented in our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities.

We are committed to offering an interview to all candidates that meet the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustment to make our recruitment process more accessible.

Guided by a collaborative vision where we all play a part in connecting nature, we provide expert advice and guidance to landowners and managers, making sure the land we look after leads by example, while inspiring and educating people and organisations across the county on what they can do. By doing this we will create a Surrey that is full of diverse and abundant wildlife, where nature is at the heart of individual choices, corporate decisions, and local economic and policy making. One that helps tackle the ongoing climate emergency, while supporting the health and wellbeing of all who live here.
