Republic is recruiting directors and a new treasurer. Could that be you?

2 August 2017

Republic is looking for people with proven experience to join our board of directors or become our new treasurer. Could that be you?

Republic’s board is made up of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds. Together we set the overall strategy, monitor progress by reviewing reports from the CEO and others and ensure the organisation is financially sound.

That doesn’t mean you need to know everything about strategy or the issues we campaign on. We need a diverse range of insights and skills, and we’ll provide briefings and training to all directors, to get you up to speed and to support you in the role.

Equality and diversity

Republic is committed to equality and diversity. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and we're particularly keen to hear from women, BAME, disabled and LGBT candidates. However, all applicants will be welcomed and recruitment will be based on merit, skills and a commitment to the role.

Campaign skills and experience

A few directors have come to the end of their terms recently and we're keen to replace them as soon as possible. We'd like to co-opt a number of new directors who can bring professional or proven campaign skills to the role.

Have you worked for a campaign group or charity? Have you been heavily involved voluntarily in running a successful campaign? 

We’d like to co-opt some new directors who have a good understanding of the principles and practice of campaigning. Whether that’s strategy, media, fundraising, storytelling or any of the skills and techniques used by campaigns.

We're also looking for a new treasurer

Republic is also looking to recruit a new treasuer. The treasurer is there to support the board in scrutinizing the accounts and ensure probity and accuracy. As a small non-profit group with big ambitions our financial position needs the sharp eye of a financial professional in the role of treasurer.

If you're a qualified accountant, someone with experience as a treasurer, or have the relevant qualifications and experience to fulfill this role, we want to hear from you.

Republic is a democratic organisation and any member is entitled to nominate for election. However, experience, skills and expertise in campaigning are particularly valuable - so we use vacancies to actively recruit new directors.

The deadline for applications is Friday 1st September.
