We are looking for a treasurer to join the board at an exciting point in the charity's life. With a new CEO and 3-year strategy in action, we are looking to strengthen the senior lay leadership team with a driven and committed treasurer.

Mavar is a charity that seeks to empower individuals who choose to explore opportunities beyond the Strictly Orthodox Jewish world to fulfil personal goals. We provide a toolkit to enable the user to achieve independence and minimise the obstacles they may encounter as they explore options to live, work or study in the wider world. Mentors provide 1-to-1 support to our members, who empower them to achieve their goals, provide an empathetic ear, and signpost to counselling, grant-giving, tutoring, social networking, educational guidance, and other specialist services.

Treasurer’s Responsibilities include:

  • Setting the overall financial direction of the charity by developing and reviewing strategic goals, policies and services to implement the mission.
  • Deciding on annual budgets and how funds are spent and raised.
  • Ensuring the prudent financial management and oversight of the charity.
  • Ensuring the charity keeps appropriate accounts, including occasional bookkeeping responsibilities.

Mavar is a small but growing charity, with a strong sense of purpose and values. We have a close culture - we're a family - and it's important that our trustees understand this. We are informal, but professional, in everything we do. Trustees are expected to take an active role in the charity’s development.
