London     Trustee - unpaid

For over 30 years, ARTICLE 19 has worked for a world where all people everywhere can freely express themselves and actively engage in public life without fear of discrimination.

Through eight regional offices, our staff  have played a critical role in protecting civic freedoms at the international and local level, and gained recognition for their fight against restrictions on expression from civil society and governments alike.

As an international NGO, governance of our work is delivered by an active Board of Trustees, with diverse professional and cultural backgrounds.  In the near future, after many years of dedicated service, our current international Treasurer will step down, and the Board are inviting applications from qualified individuals seeking a challenging voluntary role in the international NGO sector.

Among the many qualities required of our Treasurer, is a willingness to speak openly, and to shape outcomes through dialogue and discussion.

Our new Treasurer will be a committed and insightful individual who has an understanding and empathy with ARTICLE 19’s mission, values and human rights work.  As a qualified accountant with at least 5 years post qualification experience in a leading finance function you will also possess a commercial mind-set and have worked at a strategic and senior level within a large organisation.

Although we are an international NGO, it is essential for our Treasurer to have experience in the UK charity or voluntary sector gained within a grant-funded organization.

If you have also worked with overseas partners in developing countries, and are excited by the prospect of a governance role with a diverse, innovative and effective organisation,  we would like to hear from you.

For an informal discussion about the role,  please contact us by email using the header: “Initial conversation, Hon Treasurer”.
