We seek a Treasurer for our growing charity. The candidate will be asked to provide financial oversight for us as we manage our funds in an increasingly complex funding environment. Our existing Treasurer is content to stay on board to offer day to day book keeping support but does not want to undertake the higher-level tasks such as investment, pensions, and other strategic matters. The new Treasurer will be joining a new cohort of board members who have been recruited in order to ensure that we govern with the skills and experience that will enable us to face challenges with the tools we require.
The new trustee will be an active member of the board of trustees and, in addition to attending board meetings, will be involved in committee work, task groups, and keeping us abreast of financial developments in the not for profit sector.
High level finance and financial oversight skills. It is not crucial that they have worked in charities before, there is training and advice available for this. What I important is that the successful appointment is happy to work with teams of skilled volunteers (the board of trustees), the small staff team and, annually, the auditor/independent examiner.
