Situations Vacant

Hon. Treasurer and Membership Secretary

It is with regret that the Society has received notice from Dr Carmen Levick that, due to other commitments, she is unable to continue as Hon. Treasurer and Membership Secretary. We send our sincere thanks to Carmen for the hard work, and time, she has given to the Society.

Mr Peter Close, the STR Minutes Clerk, has very kindly agreed to step in as a Membership Administrator, but the STR now needs to recruit an immediate successor for the role of Hon. Treasurer and Membership Secretary as a matter of urgency. The chair, Professor Michael Gaunt, will be pleased to receive further enquiries/expressions of interest (

In accordance with Charity Commission regulations the Hon. Treasurer is not remunerated, though travel and office/administration expenses are met, but the Membership Secretary carries a stipend of £4,000 per annum. The two posts are customarily, but not necessarily combined.

Much Society business is conducted ‘on-line’ (computer supplied by STR). A level of computer literacy, experience of database administration and simple desktop design would be useful.

Support will be given, and there will be a transitional period alongside the current Hon. Treasurer/Membership Secretary.

Do please give serious consideration to offering your help.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
Dr. Jenny Bloodworth
Honorary Secretary STR
