‘Positive Action’ refers to a range of measures and initiatives that organisations can lawfully take to actively encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to apply. The selection procedure itself is no different and is based solely on merit. Due to the nature of our work, we strongly encourage applications from trans, non-binary, gender-fluid and gender non-conforming people. We particularly welcome applicants from minority ethnic backgrounds as they are under-represented within the organisation. If you have a disability and would prefer to apply in a different format or would like us to make reasonable adjustments to enable you to attend interview, please contact email@example.com.
If you are interested in applying for this role, please send over a little bit about yourself, along with any supporting documentation of experience found in the person specification to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title ‘Treasurer Application’. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries, or require assistance in your application.
