Vacancies: BGS Finance Committee

This is your chance to join the BGS Finance Committee and help shape the Society’s financial future.

Are you interested:
  • in what it takes to maintain charitable status and the basics of corporate finance and good governance,
  • in helping to shape BGS financial and governance strategy and policies,
  • in being part of a committee, recommending key financial and governance decisions to the BGS Trustee Board?
Do you want to acquire transferrable financial and governance skills you could use in decision-making processes within your hospital or workplace?
 
Extensive experience of finance or budgets is not necessary. We’re looking for someone who has an interest in how resources are managed, and the ability to think in a strategic way, asking probing questions of the executive team. We’re encouraging multidisciplinary members of the Society to apply, and we’ll provide an accessible induction for all new committee members.
 
Members serve for two years; the committee meets four times a year (currently virtually) and is chaired by the BGS Honorary Treasurer. Each meeting lasts around two hours and committee members need to allow some time beforehand to review papers, which cover financial matters, HR, IT infrastructure and other governance issues
