    North London Action for the Homeless

Trustee at North London Action for the Homeless (NLAH) – Treasurer

NLAH is a grassroots homeless charity based in Stoke Newington. We have a 28-year history in the community running a drop-in centre that is open to all who are homeless or in need, providing a healthy 3-course vegetarian meal in a welcoming environment and offering advocacy services and practical help.

NLAH creates a space for people – our services users and volunteers - to feel valued, respected, where they have a voice and feel safe.

Trustees play a key role in supporting NLAH to achieve its aims and objectives. We are seeking to appoint a Treasurer. As a small charity, this is a very hands on role, with the responsibility for all the financial tasks and oversight, requiring the Treasurer to spend approximately 5 hours per month on finance tasks, prepare the annual accounts and attend Committee meetings in the evenings (approximately every 6 weeks).

We would like our board to serve and represent our community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, those who have experience of the issues surrounding homelessness, and neuro-diverse and disabled candidates.

We also welcome applications from first time trustees and can provide support and training for trustees joining a board for the first time.

The newly appointed Treasurer can expect to be given a full handover on Finance tasks and be supported on ongoing basis by the Chair and Co-Chair.

 

To Apply

If you think you can contribute to the work of NLAH, please submit a brief statement of interest and send it with a copy of your CV to jessica.hodge@nlah.org.uk

Closing date for applications 12 December 2021
