We are recruiting a number of voluntary positions to join our Board of Trustees and also our Audit and Risk Committee.

We want everyone in our community to thrive, but sometimes things get in the way or they're too overwhelming to handle.  Whether it's the everyday or exceptional, expected or out of the blue, we're there for our beneficiaries, whether they're an ACA student, an existing or former ICAEW member or a close family dependent.

We do this through offering innovative solutions in supporting our membership in all aspects of their wellbeing be it physical, mental or financial, and also relationship, carers and careers support.

Whether you're an experienced Trustee or wanting to take your first step at Board level, we want to hear from you.  Further information on becoming a Trustee can be found here:

We are currently looking for:

  • Two trustees (one of whom will also chair our Audit and Risk Committee)
  • A Committee Member for our Audit and Risk Committee

The Audit and Risk Committee supports the Charity in fulfilling its responsibilities to monitor the integrity of CABA's financial statements, review the internal controls, governance and risk management systems and monitoring and reviewing the external audit services.  We welcome candidates who are currently working in this field and may wish to consider the role as part of their wider career development.

As a Trustee or Committee Member you will have:

  • Induction, training and reasonable expenses reimbursed
  • Opportunities to make strategic decisions and develop new skills

The expected time committment for Trustees is 6 meetings a year, with 10 desirable, which includes joining one of our committees.  For Committee Members we look for a minimum of 5 meetings including our full day strategy day.

With the exception of our Investment Committee, which meets in London, the majority of meetings are held at our offices in Rugby.  Attending some meetings by video conference may be an option.

All successful applicants are subject to a satisfactory enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Closing date for applications:  6 December 2021

Interview Date: 15 or 16 December 2021 via Zoom video
