Trustee with finance experience - LHA
For 80 years LHA London (LHA) has provided affordable accommodation for young working people and students living in Central London.
LHA operates 13 Central London hostels providing nearly 2000 bed spaces. With 70 paid staff and over 170 volunteers providing support services, the charity offers accommodation services which provide a steppingstone to enable young people to advance their careers and education, whilst meeting the reasonable needs and enhancing the well-being of residents.
LHA’s trustees are responsible for the governance and delivery of their services to young working people and students. Trustees work through the Board of Trustees, through sub-committees of the Board, and often through individual input into aspects of their work.
The charity is looking to appoint a trustee who will also serve on the Finance, Audit, and Risk Committee (FARC).
As well as having a commitment to the organisation and a willingness to devote the necessary time and effort, LHA is specifically looking for the following skills/experience:
- Finance, perhaps from experience as a Finance Director or as an auditor
- Experience overseeing audit processes
- Be a qualified accountant
- Prior experience serving as a trustee, school governor, or similar
- Experience of digital transformation would be helpful although not essential.
