The UK country group of Peace Brigades International is currently seeking a
Treasurer. PBI is an international human rights organization
dedicated to nonviolence and conflict transformation.
The role of the Treasurer is to assist the coordinator in all aspects of the
organisation’s financial management and to take specific
responsibility for the oversight of all financial transactions. The
treasurer is also required to carry out general bookkeeping duties
including regular bank balance reviews, maintaining petty cash
records etc. PBI UK is a small organisation, so the number of
such transactions is minimal.
PBI is an international NGO with four decades of experience working alongside human rights defenders, opening and protecting space for peace, conflict transformation and the defence of human rights in 8 countries. We are a life-saving international presence in areas of conflict and repression, and a powerful global advocacy network protecting those
on the ground.
PBI envisions a world in which people address conflicts nonviolently, where human rights are universally upheld and social justice and intercultural respect have become a reality.
