The Greenbank Project
Vacancy for Honorary Treasurer
The Greenbank Project is a registered charity, situated alongside the picturesque Sefton Park in Liverpool. It provides a variety of educational, sporting and leisure activities for people from within and around the Liverpool City Region. We understand the difficulties and prejudices that people living with a disability face and we work hard to support them by providing a variety of opportunities that otherwise would not be available, in education, sport and recreation. It is exciting times for Greenbank as we are currently developing our strategy to take us through the next five years. Our vision is to transform lives through challenging perceptions and inspiring self-belief.
The present Honorary Treasurer has been a Trustee for over fifteen years and whilst wishing to continue to serve as a trustee on the Finance Sub-committee, now wishes to hand over the role of Chair of the Sub-committee. Greenbank has grown to such a size (£3.5 million turnover) that we have identified that this role ideally now needs to be undertaken by a qualified accountant. An understanding of FRS102 is highly desirable, with a knowledge and experience of the Charities SORP would be advantageous. Previous experience as a Charity Trustee is desirable, but not essential.
As is usual for Charity Trustees, this is an unpaid role. The Trustees are the legal Directors of the charitable company. Bi-monthly Trustee Board meetings are scheduled for 6-8p.m. every other month on a Monday evening. The Treasurer chairs the Finance Sub-committee which meets every other month, usually within business hours but this could be changed to evenings to suit an incoming Treasurer if required.
This is an exciting opportunity to help a successful, well respected and expanding Charity in times of a challenging political and economic landscape, and in the face of increasingly complex social issues. The successful candidate would be supporting The Greenbank Project with its continued development by using their time and talent in the pursuit of social change.
Training and induction will be provided as required to the successful candidate.
Expiry date: Monday 25th November 2019
