Job Description

ICARE Stroke Rehabilitation Day Centre

The ICARE Day Centre Trust ("ICARE") is a small local charity running a day centre providing rehabilitation for people who have had a stroke.    The Centre is in Green Street Green, Orpington, welcoming up to 20 clients each day.  A dedicated team of staff and volunteers create a friendly environment where, through speech therapy and physiotherapy, social and creative activities, and mutual support and friendship, we aim to help our clients reintegrate into society.  We also provide support for their carers.

The Trustees have overall responsibility for our activities, while a Centre Manager looks after day to day operations.  ICARE is incorporated as company for operational purposes, so Trustees also act as Directors of the company.  All Trustees are volunteers.

We are looking for someone to join the Board of Trustees as Treasurer from April 2020. This is an important role, setting budgets, keeping track of ICARE’s finances, making sure we maintain high financial standards, follow sound procedures and comply with the relevant statutory requirements.  As a member of the Board, the Treasurer will also contribute to the general oversight of the charity. 

The Treasurer does not have to be an accountant but must be comfortable dealing with financial matters and maintaining sound financial procedures.  We have a computer based accounting system.  The Treasurer will need to be able to use Excel spreadsheets, as well as standard software such as Word and email, and will need to work closely with the Centre Manager and Chair/Company Secretary. 

Being Treasurer will involve a commitment of probably 2 – 3 days a month, including both the regular involvement with the financial aspects of the charity and quarterly Board meetings. It will be a very varied, interesting and worthwhile role, supporting our work at the Centre.
