Job Description

London-based conflict monitoring NGO Airwars is looking for a new volunteer Treasurer to assist its small, high impact team.

About Airwars

Airwars is a non-aligned, not for profit organisation monitoring local allegations of civilian harm from international military actions in multiple conflict zones - which presently include Iraq, Syria and Libya. We publish our findings in an accessible, open-source database. And we work where possible with militaries to help them better understand civilian harm - with the aim of reducing battlefield casualties.

Airwars was set up by professional researchers and journalists to help us better understand the true effects of airstrikes on the modern battlefield. Headquartered at Goldsmiths, University of London we have quickly become a globally respected independent voice on this key issue. Airwars is able to focus on improving both transparency and public accountability of militaries - while encouraging a healthy public debate on the issues.

Treasurer role

The volunteer Treasurer is one of four legal directors of Airwars, and has oversight of an annual budget currently in the region of £350,000, which is expected to grow. The Treasurer also supports the Airwars Directors through the provision of financial information, advice and budgeting guidance. The role is supported by a part-time bookkeeper and our chartered accountants.

The Treasurer post would suit someone with solid finance experience either in the private or third Sector, who would relish the challenge of helping advise and grow a NGO doing vital work aiding vulnerable people in conflict zones

Expected duties would be as follows:

  • Oversight of bank accounts and bookkeeping work

  • Advising where necessary on statutory reports to funders

  • Oversight of the preparation and provision of information for accountants, to enable drawing up of annual accounts.

  • Attendance at the AGM and monthly Executive Board meetings.
