Anawin, Birmingham’s Centre for Women
Unremunerated, expenses paid
West Midlands, Birmingham
Anawim works to provide an outstanding service to women. We exist to support women who are vulnerable, providing them and their children with opportunities to reach their full potential, and our aim is to enable them to move their lives forward by improving their mental health and wellbeing. To achieve this, we work with our partners in the community to challenge anything which degrades and diminishes some of the most marginalised members of society.
As the Treasurer you would, in conjunction with the Chief Executive Officer and Finance and Contracts Manager, monitor our financial situation and provide quarterly assurance reports to the Board of Trustees and you would be the Chair of the FAIF Committee. The Committee meets at least six times a year and its key responsibilities include:
- Reviewing the draft annual financial statements and related reports and recommending their approval to the Board of Trustees.
- Reviewing the effectiveness and operation of the accounting policies, financial management processes and internal controls.
- Monitoring financial risks
- Reviewing the performance of Anawim’s investments
- Reviewing progress of the Anawim’s fundraising.
We are looking for someone who, in addition to the general qualities we’ve described above be a qualified accountant; have knowledge of charity SORP and who is able to communicate and explain financial information to Trustees and to other stakeholders. Although we would want you to Chair the FAIF Committee we don’t expect you to have experience as a committee Chair as training and support can be provided
Don't miss this opportunity to get involved in Anawim. Being our Treasurer, you will help us to provide an outstanding service, to support women who are vulnerable and to provide them and their children with opportunities to reach their full potential. Trustees are unremunerated but travel and other costs associated with carrying out the role may be reimbursed and all trustees can expect to receive training and support.
