Trustee vacancy – Treasurer, Royal Society of Sculptors

The Royal Society of Sculptors is a registered charity governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board holds responsibility for the values and strategic direction of the Society. The Society’s strategic plans, annual business plans and risk assessments are considered and approved by the Board. Progress against the plans is monitored by the Board.

  • To keep the Board informed about its financial duties and responsibilities
