Remuneration: N/A this is a volunteer role
This is a volunteer non-executive opportunity to help ensure the stability and success of the leading voice for a liberal, open society. The successful candidate will help to influence resource strategy and approaches to compliance.
The Party Registered Treasurer (PRT) role is a key statutory role within all political parties and comes with specific legal responsibilities covering various areas including finance, compliance and data protection. Alongside specific responsibilities for the Party, it also takes on non-executive director (style) responsibilities for a number of associated entities. The successful candidate will become a co-opted member of the Federal Finance and Resources Committee (FFRC). For more details on the FFRC and its function see Article 12 in the Party constitution.
This is effectively a non-executive role, though it does not share the legal accountability of the Registered Treasurer. The Deputy Registered Treasurer will support the PRT as required, including but not limited to:
- Leading special projects
- Deputising for the Party Registered Treasurer
- Managing communications with key Party stakeholders, e.g. the Parliamentary Office
- Attending FFRC meetings (via Zoom)
The Party is seeking an enthused, capable individual who is keen to familiarise themselves with the role and responsibilities of the PRT, more information about which can be found on the Electoral Commission website.
This role would suit someone looking for a first non-executive position. Experience of managing finances is desirable but may have been gained in a variety of contexts. Applicants must be able to pass a fit and proper persons test. A commitment to the Liberal Democrats is required but evidence of substantial prior involvement is not and induction will be available. The Party is keen to encourage new talent.
The Liberal Democrats are committed to diversity and inclusion and we welcome applications from candidates from all walks of life.
