Worshipful Livery Company of Wales
Founded in 1993 as the Welsh Livery Guild to promote education, the arts, science and technology in Wales, in 2013 the Guild was presented with a Royal Charter and incorported as the Worshipful Livery Company of Wales (WLCOW).
WLCOW is dedicated to helping young people throughout Wales to develop their talents and skills by means of an annual awards programme of scholarships and bursaries to students in schools, universities and technical colleges, as well as to apprentices and young people in the armed forces.
More information can be found on the Company's web site www.liverycompanywales.cymru
Each year the Company, through its associated charity, The Welsh Livery Guild Charitable Trust, distributes bewteen £40,000 and £50,000 in awards, mainly to young people with a Welsh conneection who have already shown outstanding acheivement in their education or career to date.
The current Treasurer will become the Master of the Company shortly and cannot act in both roles.
The Company is therefore seeking someone with an interest in the Company's ethos and objectives who would be interested in becoming a Liveryman and serving in the honorary role of Treasurer to the Company and becoming a Trustee of the charity.
The Company employs a clerk and assistant clerk who carry out most of the booking keeping and accounting roles. The endowment funds of the Charitable Trust are managed by Brewin Dolphin. The role of the Honorary Treasurer is to ensure that adequate accounting records are being kept and financial controls are in place, to present financial reports to the Court of the Company and Trustees of the Charity, in comjuction with the Company's/Charity's external accountants/examiners produce annual accounts for presentation to The Company, Trustees and Charity Commission.
If this interests you please give Stuart Castledine, the current Treasurer and Junior Warden, a call on 077 689 77 875 to discuss.
