Job Description

ICARE is a small local charity providing rehabilitative care for people who have had a stroke, and support for their carers, at our day centre in Green Street Green, Orpington.

We are looking for someone to join the ICARE Board of Trustees to oversee our finances. This is an important role, keeping track of ICARE’s finances and making sure that we maintain high financial standards.  As well as specific financial responsibility, the Trustee will also contribute to the general running of the charity. 

The person does not need to be an accountant but must be comfortable dealing with financial matters and maintaining sound financial procedures.  They will need to be able to use Excel spreadsheets, as well as standard software such as Word and email. The formal annual accounts are prepared by a local accountancy firm.  Day to day book-keeping is done by the Centre Manager or Deputy and the Trustee will need to work closely with them and with the Company Secretary.  

The role, which is voluntary, will mean visiting the Centre regularly for monitoring and reconciling figures; preparing financial reports for, and attending, quarterly meetings of the Board of Trustees. It also involves preparing budgets and dealing with Gift Aid.  While the various aspects of the role do involve some commitment by the Trustee, it is a very varied, interesting and worthwhile role for the person taking it on, supporting our work at the Centre.
