We are looking for a new Treasurer to join our Board of Trustees. We have strong financial skills on our Board, which we now need to complement with the expertise of a chartered accountant who will work with us to inform and monitor our finances. You will provide oversight of our annual income and expenditure, and work with Trustees and our Finance Manager to ensure good governance. We have a Finance Committee that oversee our Finances and report to the Board.

Our Board of Trustees are ultimately responsible for our Foundation. Each Trustee brings their individual expertise and experience to the operation of our Board and collectively this drives our strategy and our progress. The contribution of each Trustee is valued by all associated with us and they tell us that it is a rewarding experience that contributes to their own development.

As well as a passion for your own specialist skills and a willingness to apply these to support and shape our work now and in the future, we are looking for people who have:

  • A passion and belief in our work and values.
  • Educated to degree level with a recognised accountancy qualification.
  • A strong connection to Cornwall either through living here or working here.
  • A keen interest in the work and impact of charitable Trusts and Foundations and in learning about Community Foundations’ and our unique role in social change.
  • Enthusiasm to undertake training to build skills and knowledge.
  • An ability to listen to the different views and unique experiences of others and willingness to reflect their perspectives to the rest of the Board.
  • Strong and respectful communication skills and commitment to diversity of knowledge and experience and working in a team.
