We are looking for a new Honorary Treasurer to join our trustee board.
Do you share our belief that supporting Chairs to be the best they can be makes a big difference to the impact and effectiveness of the organisations they lead? Do you have the skills and knowledge to support the board in overseeing the finance of the charity?
You will have the chance to join a highly motivated group of trustees who, working with our Chief Executive and her small team, have made a big impact in our six years of operation and punch well above our weight.
We are working to build diversity of thought and constructive challenge on our board. So, if you’ve taken a look at us, and feel you might not ‘fit’, do still please apply!
The role is unpaid, but we will pay reasonable expenses such as travel to board meetings (we don’t want distance to put you off), and/or if applicable, childcare costs.
How to apply
Please send your CV and a covering note setting out why you are applying, what you feel you can bring to the Association’s board and what you might learn from us to help you in your personal development. Please email it to Amrita.Chahal@AssociationofChairs.org.uk
If you have any queries about this opportunity, you can also email the Chair of Trustees, Danny Curtin, DannyCurtin@associationofchairs.org.uk.
The closing date is 9 am on 17 February. Interviews will be held late February or early March. The successful candidate will be invited to attend a Trustees meeting on 10 March as part of confirming the appointment.
