We’re looking for a NEW TREASURER TO JOIN OUR BOARD OF TRUSTEES and help build the financial resilience of the organisation.

At Engineers Without Borders UK we believe that people, everywhere deserve a world where they can achieve their potential and lead happy, healthy lives.  Unfortunately, many of us still lack access to basic services and all of us are at risk from the challenges associated with resource constraints, the effects of climate change, increasing urbanisation and a global population that is rapidly expanding. Engineering has a pivotal role to play in the solution to every single one of these challenges and underpins the responses needed for us all to pursue a sustainable future.

Our vision is a world where people, everywhere have equal access to the benefits of engineering and work towards this by leading a movement that inspires, enables and influences global responsibility through engineering.  We work with the education sector to drive the creation of a new generation who have the knowledge and opportunity to be globally responsible citizens today and the globally responsible engineers of tomorrow.  We work with partner organisations by providing technical support and appropriately qualified people for development projects around the world and we are a key influencer of the wider engineering profession to promote, encourage and reward a culture of collective action towards addressing global issues.

The role of our Trustees is vital to ensure effective governance of the organisation and also to provide advice and assistance to our growing staff team. As Treasurer of Engineers Without Borders UK, you will be responsible for ensuring that the financial administration of the charity is compliant with charity law and our governing document. You will also support the development of our financial strategies to help us deliver against our strategic objectives.

We would expect the successful candidate to attend the first Board of Trustees meeting after their appointment. Routine Board meetings are held quarterly, in March, June, September and December.
