What will you be doing?

Charity trustees play a very important role in making sure that the charity is run in the interests of the people it is there to support. They strategically oversee the management and administration of the organisation. As well as fulfilling the duties of a Trustee, the Finance Trustee has a supervisory role over all aspects of financial management, working closely with other members of the Board of Trustees and finance team to safeguard the organisation's finances.

  • Accountancy experience (desirable).
  • Knowledge and experience of current and fundraising finance practice relevant to voluntary and community organisations (desirable).

What difference will you make?

You will be part of an organisation that is making a real difference to individuals and communities – being a Trustee is one of the most powerful ways in which you can contribute to your local community or to a cause you really care about.

 

Time commitment

  • The time commitment for this role is estimated to be approximately 4-6 hours a month.
  • The board meet bi-monthly. Remote attendance can be supported and we can be flexible to fit around board members other commitments.
  • The Finance Trustee chairs the Finance Committee which also meet bi-monthly for 1 hour remotely.
  • Attendance at the annual AGM in September is optional but preferred.
