Job description

Fair Trials is looking for an Honorary Treasurer to offer robust and responsible financial oversight and to guide our strategy, as we work to advance the right to a fair trial across the globe.                                                            

Fair Trials is a unique human rights organisation that works to improve respect for the right to a fair trial. We believe fair trials are an essential part of a just society; that each person accused of a crime should have a fair legal process; and that fair trials make societies safer and stronger by building trust in criminal justice.

We have grown gradually over the past ten years and are proud to have achieved major legal reforms in Europe and beyond, which are protecting people against miscarriages of justice and building fair and effective justice systems that benefit everyone. We employ a team of committed and experienced staff across offices in London, Brussels and Washington D.C and work with a global movement of fair trial defenders and with many of the world’s leading law firms.

We are looking for a Treasurer who shares our commitment to fair trials and who is eager to help guide our strategy and oversee its delivery. The Treasurer will support the Board of Trustees in ensuring the sound financial management of Fair Trials and by offering financial and business input as it develops and oversees the implementation of the charity’s strategy to grow its global impact.

You don’t need to be an expert in human rights or criminal justice to apply. We are looking for someone who can demonstrate a sound track-record of interpreting financial information and using it to inform sound strategic decisions, ideally in a multi-national context.

We recognise the enormous benefits of a diverse board and encourage applications from a range of backgrounds and experiences.

This is not a paid role, but Fair Trials will cover your reasonable expenses.


Applications should be made by way of a short cover letter and CV via the button below by 10 January 2020 with “Honorary Treasurer” in the subject.


For more information please see the Treasurer role description on our website or you can contact Fair Trials’ Chief Executive, Jago Russell.
