Avenue supports people in Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, and Morayshire, occupying two sites with a large team offering a range of expertise.




Their mission is to encourage personal development, strengthen relationships, promote family wellbeing, support children, and enable healthy environments for all.

We are now looking for a Treasurer to join the board – this is an exciting opportunity to join an ambitious charity as they strive to grow their services.




The Role of Treasurer:




The role of Treasurer is critical to both compliance and viability. As the Treasurer, you will provide support and advice in relation to board and financial matters. You’ll monitor Avenues financial activities and performance, ensuring that proper accounts are kept, and financial resources are spent and invested in line with good governance, legal and regulatory requirements. Working closely with the CEO, Chair and Trustees you’ll provide reports, advice, and clarity of the financial performance of Avenue with the aim of ensuring long-term stability.


We are seeking a highly experienced individual with a strong background in a finance-based role such as an accountant, financial controller/director or similar. The ideal candidate will have a pragmatic approach to robust financial management, with the ability to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.


You should be committed to Avenue’s mission, impact and have a genuine empathy for their cause. Knowledge or experience within the third sector would be advantageous, while good communication and interpersonal skills are essential.


The Board of Trustees meet four times a year, normally for two hours in the evening, this includes an AGM. The time commitment for the incoming Treasurer will be approx. 4 hours per month. Board meetings are held in person, however virtual attendance can be accommodated.
