Job Description

Our partner commissions disabled artists and companies, across all art forms and scales. They aim to embed work by disabled artists within the UK and international cultural sectors, reach new audiences and shift perceptions.

Their activities have been delivered by disability-led arts organisations since 2013, but are now transitioning into being an independent organisation from 2022.

As they prepare for independence, setting up the new CIO and formulating finance systems, they are looking to appoint a Treasurer, to take over from the interim post holder. They need someone with both operational management accounts experience and an interest in overview of major funding bids as we begin to implement our financial strategy.

The Treasurer will maintain a strategic focus on the organisation's financial resources and their financial management, and work closely with the Chair and other Trustee, Finance Officer and auditors.

The Board meet six times a year. Three of these are formal meetings, and the other three take various formats from small group meetings to an annual away day, with remote attendance possible. The focus of the role is strategic and the Treasurer will not need to be involved in the organisation's operations on a day-to-day basis.

Please note that this is a voluntary position and therefore unremunerated.
