    South Tyneside Citizens Advice

South Tyneside Citizens Advice is seeking a Treasurer to join our Board of Trustees. We are a registered charity which has been operating for over 50 years. Based in South Shields and Jarrow we run a busy office with 26 staff and 12 volunteers and offer drop-in sessions, telephone and webchat, casework and representation at tribunals. Last year we dealt with over 42,000 issues. Our main work centres around Welfare Benefits and Debt but also Finance, Housing, Employment, Immigration, Consumer, Taxes, Family, Utilities, Education, Health and Community Care. Our Minority Ethnic Project is the only one of its kind in the area. We have close working relationships with the Local Authority, Age Concern, DWP and the local food banks.

 We are seeking a candidate with relevant accountancy or finance sector experience to support the CEO and Board. We presently have a part time Finance Officer who looks after the day to day transactional issues and our Treasurer has an oversight role and also acts as one of the signatories on our bank account.  This would require 2-3 hours per month in addition to  Board meetings which take place once a quarter. 

This role represents the opportunity to support the CEO and the staff to provide an invaluable service to the residents of South Tyneside. We would be happy to meet any prospective candidate to discuss the role in more detail.
