Job description

We need enthusiastic and committed people on the Board to shape the direction and development of the charity and ensure that it can continue to attract and develop the talent the not-for-profit sector needs now and in the future.

Charityworks advances education, in particular, but not exclusively, the provision of training and development programmes for the benefit of the voluntary not-for-profit sector. 

Our vision

An impactful not-for-profit sector that is connected, collaborative and capable, supported by excellent leadership and management, and that is representative of the society it serves.

Our mission

To support our vision, our mission is to - 

  • attract, grow, and retain future leaders and managers for the not-for-profit sector.
  • ensure that sector leadership is representative of a wide diversity of characteristics and backgrounds.
  • promote the value of recruiting, developing, and retaining talented people.
  • support the development of cross-sector, supportive networks of current and future leaders.

Who we are

We are a Board of committed individuals who bring a wide range of skills and experience to the charity. We are looking to appoint a Treasurer who will be a trustee and one further trustee. With those roles filled, we will have a total of nine trustees. We wish to draw on a diverse set of backgrounds and skills with a more specific skillset for the role of Treasurer – as described below. 

The Board works closely with Koreo who have delivered the charity’s programmes for many years. 

The charity itself has no staff but engages contracted, project-based support from time to time. For that reason, the work of the trustees is more hands-on than might be typical for a charity of our size. Therefore, we need trustees who are willing to get involved but who also have the perspective to stand back, think strategically and take a longer-term view. Our trustees also need to be able to adapt their role and contribution as our work progresses.

Who we are looking for

For both roles

We are open to considering applications from anyone who feels they can fulfil what we are looking for. We are looking for people who have some experience working with/for a Board in the not-for-profit sector e.g. giving reports to or presenting to a Board or as a Board member.

We are particularly keen to hear from you if you can bring one or more of the following –

  • experience in either a paid or voluntary capacity of the world of work and the career and life aspirations of young people.
  • commercial acumen and business knowledge
  • marketing/networking that would be relevant and insightful for our business.
  • legal skills and experience in areas related to our sphere of operations.

While we have limited resources, we will endeavour to provide induction, orientation, and support to help you accept a Board role with us effectively and with confidence.

Additionally for the role of Treasurer

We are looking for someone who has charity sector financial skills and experience which may have been acquired in a paid or voluntary role. Our Treasurer will need to work collaboratively with finance colleagues at Koreo and with the charity’s accountants as well as reporting to the Board on all financial, financial governance and indemnity matters. The Treasurer compiles a draft charity budget for the Board to consider and reports quarterly against that budget and programme budgets prepared in conjunction with Koreo. 

Until now, the role has been undertaken in its entirety by a single individual. The Board is happy to continue that arrangement or consider a shared arrangement such that the duties are split. This could be done in one of several ways e.g., one role-holder is responsible for the budget and forecasting and the other for the accounts and reporting. Please state in your application which arrangement (undertaking the entire role or sharing the role) you would prefer.
