Tibbs Dementia Foundation is seeking a Treasurer to join the Board of Trustees.  The Treasurer will be responsible for overall oversight of the financial functions of the charity and for developing, with the trustees, the financial framework required to deliver the charity's business objectives.  The Treasurer will also take responsibility for advising the Board on legal and financial matters as they affect a small charity and for fulfilling the legal requirements such as completing the returns to Charity Commission and Companies House.  With the support from the management team, the Treasurer will be responsible for the preparation, and presentation to the Board, of monthly management accounts and for preparation of the annual accounts.

Tibbs Dementia Foundation is the lead provider of dementia services in Bedfordshire.  It is estimated that around 5,000 people across Bedfordshire are living with dementia and that figure is set to grow considerably over the coming years.  At Tibbs Dementia Foundation we firmly believe that helping those affected by dementia to remain integrated in the community has a major impact on their quality of life.  We provide a range of services and activities which help them, and their carers, to remain active and respected, breaking down barriers to create a dementia-friendly community.  The charity has an annual turnover of around £200,000, made up of income from service contracts, charity grants and private donations.  The charity is growing rapidly on the back of its reputation for excellence in service delivery.  It has a core management team, including a Chief Executive and Operations Manager.  Alongside the recruitment of a Treasurer the charity will be recruiting a Finance Manager or Bookkeeper to carry out the day-to-day financial activities.
