Since 1935, The Ramblers have been doing everything they can to make sure everyone everywhere can enjoy nature. Today, they’re Britain’s biggest and most vibrant walking community too, leading the way, and the walks, for a community of 100,000 walkers. The Ramblers are committed to campaigning to keep our countryside open to all and to fighting for the things that matter most to walkers, so everyone can enjoy over 180,000 miles of paths, tracks and trails across England, Scotland and Wales.
The Ramblers fought to establish National Parks and National Trails – and won. They successfully campaigned for everyone to enjoy Britain's coastline. They've helped open up vast swathes of the British countryside, which was out of bounds, and made sure laws were amended and added to keep it that way.
We are now seeking an Honorary Treasurer to join the Ramblers following a period of rapid transformation. You will bring experience in commercial and financial management and oversight gained at a senior, strategic level, ideally as a finance professional, as well as strategic vision, independent judgement, and an analytical approach to the role which oversees a registered charity with an annual income of nearly £10 million.
The successful candidate will initially become an Independent Member of the Finance Risk and Audit Committee, before being appointed as Honorary Treasurer following the General Council AGM meeting in April 2024.
If you believe you offer the skills and qualities we are seeking and are motivated by the vision of a country where everyone enjoys the outdoors and benefits from the experience, we look forward to hearing from you.
