Would you like to have a real impact and help our children reach their full potential by using your finance and strategic skills to help us meet this mission.
At Cirencester Opportunity Group we provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for all families. We work in partnership with parents and other agencies to promote inclusive care and education and to respond to the ever changing needs of the community.
We are currently seeking a Trustee Treasurer who is willing to work as part of a team to oversee and support the future development of Cirencester Opportunity Group (COG), an independent Children's charity. We feel that individuals who would approach this vital work with integrity, objectivity and openness would be best suited to leading our charity into the future.
The leadership provided by all of our trustees makes a real difference to the lives of the children and families that attend our Specialist Early Years Centre (Ofsted registered).
What can you expect to be doing?
Working closely with our dedicated staff (Centre manager; Business Administrator; Charity Fundraiser), you will help us to:
- Oversee the financial affairs of COG and ensure they are legal, constitutional and within accepted accounting practices
- Help prepare budgets and management financial reports, and present these to the Board
- Ensure that the charity keeps accurate financial records
- Be part of a team which ensures COG’s financial resources meet our needs now and in the future
What are the benefits to you?
You will develop your skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of our children and their families. You will also meet new people, enjoy new experiences and be part of an energetic and committed board of trustees.
We’re looking for someone with
- Experience of charity accounting and good Excel skills
- The ability to collect and present information clearly and logically
- Good written and verbal communication skills
- The ability to use own initiative and contribute to the strategic direction of the charity
You can expect to spend around 12 hours a month in this role (home working). The Board currently meet every 6 weeks (virtual 2 hour meetings in the evening), but will revert post Covid to meeting at our Cirencester Centre.

COG is committed to promoting equality and diversity and it is embedded in all we do. Our goal is to build a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
