Closing date
28 Feb 2023

The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) is a major UK professional engineering, environmental and scientific institution, a registered charity and governed by a Royal Charter. With a membership of around 15,000 in the UK and overseas,  IOM3 supports professionals in materials, minerals, mining and associated technical disciplines to become champions of the transition to a low-carbon, resilient and resource efficient society. The IOM3 head office is in London, with a regional office in Grantham.

We are looking for leaders who have a passion for our community and a strong financial background to volunteer to serve as the IOM3 Honorary Treasurer. In this Board role, you will have the opportunity to influence the strategic direction and governance of IOM3, and to shape the future of the Institute. You will be able to develop your Board-level experience and skills whilst giving back to the wider materials, minerals, and mining communities. The role is for an initial four-year term of office. 

We expect the successful individual to have:
•    a strong understanding of commercial and not-for-profit sector financial reports;
•    experience of strategic financial planning;
•    ability to present financial information clearly to a range of audiences.
•    experience of the governance of budgetary and contract management; 
•    experience of risk management;

Ideally, the successful candidate will also have an understanding of the financial dynamics of a professional body, but this can be learned ‘on the job’. Our active supporters and volunteers are offered access to training on the roles and responsibilities of a charitable Trustee, committee chairing and other training opportunities as appropriate.
