Who we are looking for, to join the Board as Treasurer
The last 2 years have been a challenge for the Trust as it has been for everyone in the country. We have had to face the difficulties of working remotely and adjusting our existing practices. Coupled with that, our long term Chairman and Treasurer both retired in 2021.
We are determined to look on these challenges as an opportunity to evolve and are looking at how we can fulfil the aims of the Trust by recruiting Directors with relevant experience and from diverse backgrounds to help us meet our aims and key performance indicators.
In a Treasurer we are looking for someone with financial expertise, knowledge of financial packages and procedures and who is computer literate. Of great importance to us is the commitment any applicant has to the aims of the Trust and a willingness to work with the other Directors to take the Trust forward to ensure that we access funds to ensure the continued good work the Trust carries out and to widen the scope of its activities.
Role of the Treasurer
The Treasurer must formally become a trustee and the duties include the following:
- Monitor the income and expenditure and prepare figures for board meetings
- Manage the grants scheme
- Report on grants given and current applications at board meetings
- Prepare annual accounts and summarised versions
- Prepare and supply accounts for Companies House and Charity Commission
- Write the financial aspect of the Annual Report
- Manage Trust members’ finances. The vast majority of members pay by direct debit.
We are a small charity but the role of the Treasurer complies with the requirements of the Charity Commission and guidelines can be found at www.honorarytreasurers.org.uk .
