Commitment

  • We are currently looking for a new Treasurer to advise our Board of Trustees on financial concerns and assist on preparing budgets for funding applications.
  • The successful person will need to attend Trustee meetings present at our AGM (approx. 6 meetings a year). In addition, there may be ad hoc meetings with the Chair/Finance Director/CEO and book-keeper. We would like someone with an understanding of Charity finance, but this is not essential.

What else do I need to know?

  • The Board meets at least 6 times a year and the Treasurer is expected to be available 4 times in a year

    The job is a part-time job at the moment requiring 2-6 hours a week on average. The amount of hours depends on the time of the year, eg for year-end & preparing financial accounts the hours will be a bit more.

Expenses

  • Expenses will be paid to cover travel to meetings etc.

Background checks

  • No background checks are required
