Age UK Gloucestershire is seeking a trustee Treasurer to join its Board of 8 trustees
Would you like to join us in making Gloucestershire the best county in which to grow older?
Due to the end of term of office, a vacancy will shortly arise on our Board of Trustees for a Treasurer. In order to support a smooth and effective handover, we are looking to appoint a new Trustee now to give them time to work alongside our current treasurer for a period before their time on the Board comes to an end.
Our Board of Trustees meets 6 times a year to agree the strategic direction of the charity and monitor delivery by the staff team of agreed plans. The Treasurer has a particular focus on our financial performance and scrutiny.
The position is voluntary for a period of 3 years, renewable for further term (subject to re-election).
We aim to have as wide a range of skills as possible on our Board. As Treasurer you will of course bring finance and accountancy skills. In addition, if you have legal knowledge, fundraising experience or insight into community action and social movements we are particularly keen to hear from you.
At Age UK Gloucestershire, we understand the positives that come from hearing a wide range of voices, so we actively encourage applications from people from the following groups who are currently under-represented on the Board to help broaden the Board’s diversity:
- People from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds (BAME)
- LGBTQ+ people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and other identities)
- People with personal experience of financial hardship or claiming welfare benefits
Learning and Development Support
Although our starting point is to look for people who have experience at Board/Treasurer level in other organisations, we realise that circumstances may mean that you haven’t had the opportunity to acquire that experience. So, if you believe you can help address the priorities of the Board, but may need extra support and development from us then please don’t let your lack of Board level experience stop you from applying.
