The Thomas Hardy Society
Added: 28 November 2017
The Thomas Hardy Society is famous worldwide and few in Dorset will be unaware of the importance of Thomas Hardy to Dorset and tourism. As well as promoting the author’s life, his novels, short stories and poetry, we have Hardy-based events: lectures, walks, concerts, plays etc. and a week-long international festival and conference every two years. 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the Society. It also produces publications and works in close association with the Dorset County Museum and the National Trust, which owns Thomas Hardy’s birthplace and his house, Max Gate. Registered Charity no. 254248.
Your colleagues are a friendly and enthusiastic group of Hardy fans and academics. We are looking for a Treasurer who will be able to come into the office three or four days in a month at times to suit you (during Museum opening hours), although if you live at a distance and can suggest ways of working remotely, we would consider this.
You will be responsible for payments made to and by the Hardy Society, for keeping all ﬁnancial records (mostly on computer), and for preparing the annual ﬁnancial report for the Charity Commission. You will be a signatory on the THS chequebook. And you will sit on the Society’s Council of Management which meets 6 times a year on a Saturday.
There are two ‘downsides’ to the position: (1) it is voluntary (ie unpaid) and (2) the office is on the top floor of Dorset County Museum in Dorchester and there is no lift.
But the ‘upside’ is that you will be working (and playing) with a great team, to perpetuate the gift to the world of Dorset’s great writer, Thomas Hardy.
