HFHGB (Homes) is the charity which delivers housing projects in London and the South East on behalf of the Habitat for Humanity family. Habitat for Humanity is an international development charity whose mission to make sure that everyone has a decent place to call home within a thriving community.

We are a charity with 6 full time staff and a turnover last year of slightly less than £1m and we employ a number of strategies to achieve our mission. Using support from corporate partners we run a corporate engagement programme which refurbishes and maintains community facilities and housing. We also assist partner charities to maximise the use of their buildings and land through a project management consultancy. Lastly we actively build and convert underused property into homes for people in housing need.

The role we are looking to fill is that of treasurer and a member of the board of trustees. The key role is the oversight of the financial performance of the charity and also to assist in the preparation of reports for the board to understand this performance. 

The board of trustees meet 4 times per year in either Peckham or Central London and meetings are usually held in the early evening. 

We are looking for the new treasurer to be in post by the end of June so that they are able to assist in our year end which is processed during July and August. The preparation of these accounts would involve working with the outgoing treasurer and form part of an orderly handover.

Applicants should submit a cover letter explaining their suitability for the role and also a copy of your CV. These should be submitted via email to our CEO Gareth Hepworth (gareth.hepworth@hfhhomes.org.uk). Any questions regarding the role should also be addressed to him.
