This is an exciting opportunity to become a key trustee of Andrews Charitable Trust, both chairing our finance & investments committee (FIC) and taking up a charity-nominated position as a paid Non-Executive Director on the company Board of Andrews Property Group.
As Chair of the FIC you will have the relevant financial skills and experience to consider, assess and make recommendations on the suitability of all financial matters of the Trust, in order to make recommendations to the full board. The key functions of the FIC are laid out in Terms of Reference covering their responsibilities in the following areas: Investment Policies – including policies relating to our stance on ethical, social and programme-related investments ; Financial Risk Assessment and mitigation; Financial Management of the charity’s operations including the provision of financial information to the board of trustees; Audit committee functions; Investment in Andrews Property Group; Cash investments; Property investments, including those used by the Establish programme; and Advising and assessing business plans for potential programme-related or mixed-motive investments.
The role will also be nominated to represent the interests of the Trust on the Board of Directors of Andrews Property Group. Acting as a Non-executive Director, the role is remunerated as a NED, but will ensure that ACT as the sole shareholder, is well represented along with the ACT Chairperson, who is also a NED on the company board. Details of this role will be separately communicated and discussed with candidates during the interview process.
The Trust is seeking a qualified accountant with experience of governance at a board level, with experience in one or more of the following areas:
- Residential or commercial property services in either regulated, public and/or private sectors.
- Investment services, including venture and early stage investments, property and multi-asset investment management
- Property development
- Housing management and/or accommodation-based support, especially working with young people (e.g. with housing associations or other social housing providers).
- Entrepreneurial business skills and successful experience of setting up new enterprises – commercial or not-for-profit.
ACT is a Christian organisation that requires trustees who are Christians themselves or who are willing to work with Christian organisations who are explicit about their faith.
