VOLUNTARY ACTION EPPING FOREST
Voluntary Action Epping Forest is a charity in the Epping Forest District of Essex. We are seeking a trustee treasurer. VAEF’s aim is to promote, support and develop services to support those in need including direct delivery of services. The work of our chairty is best described on our website vaef.org.uk. We would really like our Treasurer to be a qualified accountant or to have good financial experience as we do need some strong financial steer.
We are going through challenging times but they are also exciting as we are changing our strategy and have just moved to a remote flexible way of working, precipitated by Covid but it was something we wanted to do anyway. We need help and support as we are working in partnership with other local organisations for larger funding bids and to develop our services further. Our Treasurer would be involved in this. We work very much as a team and you would be part of the trustee board, the role is challenging and rewarding.
It is difficult to put a figure on the time commitment, we have generally said about 3 hours per week. As we are working almost exclusively remotely at the moment all meetings are video. In non Covid times there is a Board meeting 6 times a year which is held during the day. As the Treasurer would work closely with the staff any meetings again would need to be in working hours. This does mean that someone working full time would need to have the facility to make time in working hours.
