Index on Censorship, one of the world’s leading freedom of expression organisations, is looking for a treasurer to join our board of trustees.
Registered in 1971 with the Charities Commission, the Writers and Scholars Educational Trust is known as Index On Censorship and is chaired by Trevor Phillips. The charity has a strong history of protecting free speech and standing up against censorship at home and around the world.
We are strengthening our board with this new role during this important time as freedom of expression faces new challenges, such as the regulation and oversight of digital platforms.
If you have strong financial skills, a keenness for good governance and a passion for free speech you may well be the person we are looking for as we move into an exciting phase of our development, with new projects launching in the USA and the UK.
The treasurer will be expected to attend board meetings, which take place in central London, once a quarter and other ad-hoc meetings as required (usually an additional 2-3 per year, such as auditors’ meetings, events etc.)
The treasurer will work alongside our chair and other board members to ensure good governance and viability of the charity. You will also work with our head of finance, CEO, accountants and other relevant parties. As part of the board your tasks include:
