PBI Ireland seeks Treasurer to join the Board of Directors.
The Irish country group of Peace Brigades International (PBI) is currently seeking a Treasurer. PBI is an international human rights organization dedicated to nonviolence and conflict transformation.
The role of the Treasurer is to assist the coordinator in all aspects of the organisation’s financial management and to take specific responsibility for the oversight of all financial transactions. The treasurer is also required to carry out general bookkeeping duties including regular bank balance reviews, maintaining petty cash records etc. PBI Ireland is a small organisation, so the number of such transactions is minimal (fewer than 100 transactions per annum).
PBI is an international NGO with 36 years of experience working alongside human rights defenders, opening and protecting space for peace, conflict transformation and the defence of human rights in 14 countries. We are a life-saving international presence in areas of conflict and repression, and a powerful global advocacy network protecting those on the ground.
PBI envisions a world in which people address conflicts nonviolently, where human rights are universally upheld and social justice and intercultural respect have become a reality.
We provide protection, support and recognition to local human rights defenders who work in areas of repression and conflict and have requested our support. We believe that lasting transformation of conflicts cannot come from outside but must be based on the capacity and desires of local people. Our work is effective because we take an integrated approach, combining a presence alongside human rights defenders on the ground with an extensive network of international support.
