The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute (Martin Lewis charity) seeks new Trustee with a legal background

Closing Date
7 February 2021
Time Commitment
Quarterly board meetings + AGM

The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute is an independent charity set up by Martin Lewis, and committed to breaking the link between financial difficulty and mental health problems. We conduct research, develop practical policy solutions and work in partnership with both those providing services and those using them to find what really works.

We are recruiting two new members to our Board of Trustees, which plays an essential role in guiding the organisation, shaping our strategy and ensuring that we meet our statutory obligations:

  • We are looking for a new trustee with an accounting qualification and experience in charity accounting to fulfil the role of treasurer.
  • We are also recruiting a new trustee with a legal background and experience in charity law.

The successful candidates will join a passionate and committed group of trustees, drawing from business, politics, regulation and the third sector. The commitment required for both roles includes attendance at quarterly board meetings, attendance at our annual general meeting, reading papers in advance of meetings, availability from time to time to support the senior management team through correspondence or ad-hoc meetings.

The successful candidate for the treasurer role will also be expected to attend quarterly finance committee meetings and an annual auditors’ meeting.

These roles are unpaid voluntary positions, but reasonable travel expenses can be claimed when attending quarterly meetings in person.

The Board always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health conditions. We are also committed to improving diversity in the charity sector and are particularly keen to receive applications from members of minority ethnic communities.
