Join Our Team as Treasurer at New Economics Foundation!

Are you passionate about transforming the economy for the betterment of people and the planet? Do you possess a strong financial background and a desire to contribute to meaningful change? If so, New Economics Foundation (NEF) invites you to become our Treasurer and trustee, playing a vital role in guiding our strategic direction and financial stewardship.

While long established, we are not a typical think tank. Since 1986, we have been leading progressive thought and action, bringing together economic, social and environmental policy. We research, develop and campaign for radical policy solutions that will transform the economy so it works for people and planet.


We will soon announce the appointment of a new Chair, and have a vibrant, committed Board. With a general election approaching it’s an exciting time to join us.


As Treasurer, you will work alongside fellow trustees to ensure NEF achieves its mission and remains accountable to stakeholders. Your specific responsibilities will include:


Maintaining oversight of NEF’s financial affairs on behalf of the Board of Trustees. Providing guidance on financial stewardship in alignment with our strategic aims. Chairing the Finance, Audit & Risk Committee and contributing to the Board & Officers’ Committee. Overseeing compliance with statutory requirements and the presentation of organisational budgets and accounts. Acting as a sounding board for the Director of Finance & Operations and addressing any major financial concerns. Supporting the review of financial controls, reserves, and risk management policies. Meeting with external auditors as necessary and presenting accounts to trustees. Commitment:


An average of 2 days per month, including preparing for and attending hybrid Board and sub-committee meetings.


The Treasurer will typically serve a three-year term, with a maximum of two terms allowed. Application Deadline: Thursday 25th April 2024 at 9am
