We are seeking to recruit a voluntary Treasurer and voluntary Honorary Secretary to join the Board of Trustees.

We are looking to recruit a Treasurer and Honorary Secretary to join our Board of Trustees. Both are voluntary roles and will involve working with Chairman, Professor Nigel Lewellyn, and the NHSF administrator to whom operations are outsourced.


Our Treasurer has traditionally been appointed from within our Board of Trustees but as we move to a smaller trustee body with a more strategic focus, we are now looking for someone with a financial background or previous experience as a Treasurer to join the Board. The role involves oversight of finances, budget preparation and reporting. Day to day financial processes are outsourced and managed through QuickBooks.
