Transform seeks new Treasurer

2012 was an historic and exciting year for drug policy reform, with two US states voting to legalise cannabis and a host of eminent public figures – including incumbent presidents – declaring that the war on drugs has been lost.

To capitalise on the growing support for the end of the war on drugs, we have been expanding our capacity at Transform – in particular our Board of Trustees. The Board now includes experts from a range of fields, including the former Deputy Director of Oxfam, internet entrepreneur Paul Birch, and the former political editor of the Mirror. (More details on the board can be found here.)

We are now looking for an experienced Treasurer to join our dynamic Board.

Transform’s Board meets three times a year (twice in Bristol and once in London). The treasurer will also be expected to attend meetings of the Executive Committee in between these dates (usually held in Bristol).

The main duties are to oversee the financial administration of the organisation, review procedures and financial reporting, and to advise the board on our financial and fundraising strategy.

Now is a great time to join the drug policy reform movement, so if you think you have the required skills and would like to apply, please send your CV and cover letter to by 15th February 2013.
