York Humanists Branch Treasurer

York Humanists is a local branch of Humanists UK. All Humanists UK members and supporters in the branch area are automatically part of the branch.

York Humanists aim to provide a range of activities for non-religious living in York to meet, socialise, campaign, raise awareness of humanism, participate in local civic life and support each other. The branch represents Humanists UK and the local humanist community at public events and in public forums.

As Treasurer, will keep an overview of York Humanists’ financial affairs, ensuring viability and good record-keeping.

Your main responsibilities will be to:

  • Prepare an annual budget and quarterly reports for Humanists UK.
  • Ensure that York Humanists’ programme of activities is financially viable.
  • Process invoices and expense claims.

You may also be asked to:

  • Develop and deliver the fundraising aspect of local activities, and ensure income-generating activities are managed in line with best practice.
  • Provide support to other members of the team in the delivery of events and other activities.

This application pack contains all the information you will need to decide whether the role is right for you, including what you would get out of the role and what we expect you would bring to the role.

Whatever your background, or prior experiences, if you’re passionate about creating an inclusive, effective humanist community in and around York, we’d love to hear from you.

To apply for the role, please email branches@humanists.uk by Friday, 26 May 2023 letting us know:

  • Who you are, including a little bit about yourself
  • Why you are interested in the role
  • What do you think you’d bring to the role (e,g. your skills and experiences that would be particularly relevant)
  • What you’d like to get out of the role
  • Any concerns, or extra support you’d need in the role

This need not be a long essay, it’s just to help us understand who you are, and why you’d be a good fit. If you have a current CV, that would also be helpful but isn’t essential. You are welcome to contact Colin, the York Humanists Coordinator (coordinator-york@humanistbranches.uk), or Humanists UK (branches@humanists.uk) to discuss the role before applying.
