From our office

Age UK Gloucestershire’s vision is to make our county the best place in the UK in which to grow older.

 

We are seeking a new Treasurer to join our board of trustees /directors and help us achieve our vision.

 

We are a small, independent Charity based in Gloucestershire with the aims to challenge negative stereotypes of ageing, create positive age-friendly communities, help older people retain a sense of purpose, and offer help and support to older people and their families.

 

 

Overview of the role:

 

The Treasurer supports the Board with maintaining an overview of the charity’s financial affairs, as well as fulfilling the role of a Trustee/Board Director. The Treasurer assists the Chair and the CEO in ensuring that the board of trustees fulfils its duties and responsibilities for the proper financial governance of the charity; by ensuing effective and appropriate financial measures, controls and procedures are in place, reporting to the Board at regular intervals about the financial health of the Charity.

 

In addition to the above, the Treasurer will also have the responsibilities and qualities of all trustees.

 

This is a voluntary position, but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. Our trustees service for a 3-year term of office with the potential for re-appointment for a further term to a maximum of 6 years.

 

What we are looking for

 

We are looking for people willing to bring energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to the role, and who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our board.

 

  • A finance professional. A knowledge of charity finance is an advantage. Otherwise, an enthusiasm to learn, drawing from sound commercial experience and an understanding of SMEs. A strategical thinker with an ability to balance risk and opportunity. Clear communicator with the ability to bring the financial information alive to non-finance specialists. Willing to play an active role in areas such as forecasting, setting budgets, liaising with auditors. Commitment to striving for better for older people across Gloucestershire.

 

You’ll need to be able to commit to attending six board meetings a year, as well as the potential for some further working group. In return we can offer training, a chance for someone who is maybe looking for their first board experience to get involved, and a supportive environment for anyone who wishes to join us.

 

If you are interested, or know anyone who could be, please contact our people manager at sscrivens@ageukgloucestershire.org.uk

Please email your CV or and supporting statement explaining your interest in the charity, and how your experience and skills meet the requirements of the role to sscrivens@ageukgloucestershire.org.uk

 

The initial deadline for applications is 17 July 2024.

 

 

Applications will be reviewed and selected candidates invited for further discussion and interview, including the opportunity to meet the Chair and CEO.

 

References and DBS checks will be undertaken before formal appointment.

 

We are committed to having workforce including our Board that is representative of the community we serve. We therefore welcome applications from all backgrounds and all sections of the community.
