Job Description

RDA (Woodbridge & District), a charity that provides equine centred activities for children and adults with physical and/or serious learning disabilities in East Suffolk is looking to recruit a new treasurer.

This is a voluntary role that involves maintaining a record of the organisation's finances, administering payroll and reporting on financial matters to the Trustees. The role also involves membership of the Board of Directors and Trustees. Other specific responsibilities are:

  • Liaising with the external accountants and ensuring all necessary information and documents are provided to allow them to prepare Annual Accounts and Returns.
  • Based on accounts prepared by the external accountant, preparing and presenting a financial statement at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
  • Ensuring that the group has an appropriate reserves and investment policies.
  • Making annual financial filings to Companies House and Charity Commission.

What difference will you make?

As an entirely self-financing organisation the board of trustees rely on a clear picture of the organisation's finances to inform many of the decisions made (e.g. capital projects, running cost budget, employee recruitment, horse purchase, etc.) all of which are essential to offering our service to as many people as possible within the constraints of available income. A clear financial picture is also vital as we plan for the next few years. We see strong demand for our services and have a real opportunity to increase the reach and impact of our work by efficiently utilising the resources available to us.

What's in it for the volunteer?

Volunteering with RDA makes a difference to the lives of others and it’s great for your well-being too. You’ll get a warm welcome, make new friends and become a valued part of our community where disabled and non-disabled people come together with a shared purpose, build friendships, a sense of belonging, confidence and self-esteem.

Please contact us know if you have any questions or would like an informal chat about the charity and the role.
