Job Description

The Mammal Society, established in 1954, is a small UK wide charity advocating science-led mammal conservation.

One in four of our native mammals is threatened with extinction and many others are in decline. With Britain now recognised as one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world, urgent action is needed. We are working to give our wildlife a better future by:

1. Keeping a constant watch on the conservation status of our mammals and making this information freely available.

2. Making conservation more effective by providing guidance on what  to do and where to do it.

3. Educating the public and professionals about wild mammals, training people to survey them and and sharing the latest research.

4. Working in partnership to restore native mammal populations and re-establish functional eco-systems.

We are seeking a qualified accountant, preferably with some experience of the charity sector, to replace our retiring Honorary Treasurer. The role is well supported, as the charity's part-time Finance and Membership Officer is a part-retired Chartered Accountant. She has a wealth of finance/business experience, including some in the charity sector. Thus, the new Honorary Treasurer will be able to concentrate on the strategic aspects of the role, rather than being partly hands-on, as may be more usual in a small charity.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
