The Science Council evolved over 20 years ago from an informal network of professional science bodies to a membership organisation of over 30 professional bodies and learned societies from across the scientific disciplines, providing the quality assurance system for those working in science.
Tackling the most pressing global challenges will require a diverse science workforce and ever-deepening interdisciplinary collaboration between scientists and society. As an interdisciplinary membership organisation connecting professional bodies from across science, and upholding the standards across our profession, we play a unique and valuable role in ensuring public trust and confidence in the scientific workforce and transparency in the process of science.
We are looking for an ambitious, financially literate Treasurer who has the vision and commitment to help grow the Science Council into an increasingly respected, influential, and sustainable organisation. They will bring financial knowledge and strategic insight to the role and advise on growth plans and how we can maximise the use of our assets. A financial qualification is desirable but a strong understanding and experience of financial management and accounting within the voluntary, trade or membership body sectors, and strong business and financial acumen is essential.
This is your opportunity to join the Board of a small but ambitious and well-run organisation, and one that is looking to grow a vibrant and diverse professional body community, harness its collective expertise in the pursuit of professional excellence and public benefit.
