Homeworking / Norwich, Norfolk

Part Time
Contract Type

Our client is the county’s largest environmental charity, committed to the protection and enhancement of Norfolk’s wildlife and wild places. They are supported by more than 35,000 members and have 1,300 active volunteers. 

They are looking for a new Honorary Treasurer to join their dynamic and affable Board. Their current Treasurer retires from the position after a very successful 15 years.

This voluntary role will suit a person who likes to work as part of a team, can demonstrate active listening skills and feels comfortable giving considered opinions during their council meetings. They are looking for someone who is responsible, committed and will be striving to help this charity reach its strategic goals.

The role of Treasurer is to monitor the financial administration of the charity and report to the board of Trustees at regular intervals, in line with best practice and in compliance with the governing document and legal requirements. It is a voluntary position and works closely with their Head of Finance and Support Services. The current Treasurer holds a place on the board of their wildlife consultancy, whose profits are gift aided to the Trust. It provides a further opportunity for someone with a keen interest in the strategic direction of the business.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong understanding of financial management and reporting at a strategic level and have up to date working knowledge of accountancy, business development and strategy. Ideally they will be a qualified accountant and have an understanding of the Charity's legal obligations, governance and the duties of a trustee board.  Members of the board are required to attend five to six council meetings per year and to be available at other times to for specific sub-groups with their experienced senior managers and their CEO. They anticipate a twelve-month probationary period and hope their new Treasurer will be able to commit to a five-year term with the opportunity for renewal.

Expressions of interest would be gratefully received by 5pm on Friday 8 February.
