Job Description

Amazing opportunity to join the Board and shape the future direction of an incredibly creative, newly registered charity making dreams come alive for children across Dorset.

Our partner is a creative writing and mentoring centre for young people in Dorset, inspiring 7-18 year olds through the power of storytelling, unleashing their imaginations, building their confidence and enhancing their communication skills. 

They are seeking a Treasurer to be part of this incredibly inspiring and creative new children's charity and to help build it from its inception.

The Treasurer will oversee the financial affairs of the organisation and ensure they are legal, constitutional and operate within accepted accounting practice. They will ensure proper records are kept and that effective financial procedures are in place as well as monitor and report on the financial health of the charity. They will also oversee the production of necessary financial reports/returns, accounts and audits.

They are looking to appoint someone with knowledge of financial management, good financial analysis skills as well as, ideally, knowledge and experience of fundraising within voluntary and community organisations.

The estimated total time commitment is approximately 1 to 5 hours per month. The board currently meets monthly (moving to bi-monthly from next year). They are very open to remote working and board meeting attendance can be online.

Please note that this is a volunteer role and there is therefore no remuneration.
