Board of Trustees - Treasurer
Malaria No More UK

Job Description

Malaria No More UK has a straightforward objective – to end malaria. MNMUK believes this is achievable by building on the successes of the last 15 years and by bringing new resources to the challenge. In a rapidly changing world where fashionable issues come and go, the global community must be relentless in pursuing the end of a disease which is believed to have killed up to half of humankind.

Although a relatively small organisation, Malaria No More UK is recognised as a strong voice and thought leader in the global malaria campaign. Core support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has significantly increased over the last five years as our niche role of convener and catalyst for malaria funding has become even more critical.

MNMUK is privileged to already have some key individuals and organisations as partners in the commitment to end Malaria, but recognise the need to develop additional partnerships in order to mobilise new resources. The 2019--2023 strategy is to inspire the world to act; it is ambitious, exciting and achievable. Over the next year this will manifest itself in building on the achievements of our high-profile advocacy and communications campaign from 2018 which generated of $4.1 billion in commitments.

The departure of the existing Treasurer, after having completed two full terms in office, means that MNMUK is recruiting a new Board Treasurer from July this year. While primarily focussed on finance and governance aspects of the charity, successful candidates will support MNMUK and work actively with other trustees. The Treasurer’s expertise will help MNMUK drive influence, income and ultimately impact in ending malaria. The successful candidate will have a strong finance background, high-level experience of complex decision- making, and be able to both support and challenge our finance team.

If you are inspired by our ambition and think you can help guide the acceleration of the malaria campaign, then please read on.

Thank you for your interest.
