Job Description

We are looking for a qualified Finance professional, who has experience at a senior level to become the Treasurer of our Board of trustees as we transition from a CIC (Community Interest Company) into a CIO (Charity Incorporated Organisation) enabling us to be more sustainable and also scale our impact.

Our Treasurer doesn’t need experience as a Trustee, but significant experience of Charity Finance is essential - this role could suit a CFO, Head of Finance or similar who is seeking their first trustee role. It would also be an exciting role for someone who has previous experience of being a Treasurer and would like to volunteer with a more dynamic and innovative organisation.

We hope that our Treasurer will volunteer 6-8 hours per month with Chayn, which will include quarterly meetings (virtual), some administrative tasks, training/induction and calls with the team.

Trustees will build strong and supportive relationships with each other and with the executive team, and will have fun working with one of the most innovative and dynamic charities in the UK.
