Job Description

Northern Society of Chartered Accountants wishes to appoint a future leader of our Society. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Chartered Accountant based in our region.

We are a membership body for circa 4,000 ICAEW Chartered Accountants and ACA students who work across business and the finance profession in the North East, Teesside, Northern Yorkshire and Cumbria. The Society is run by a General Committee of circa 20 members. We arrange courses, networking, annual events and conferences in collaboration with the ICAEW regional team.

The Society is led by a presidential team; President, Deputy President and Vice President each of whom serves a 1-year term. The Vice President role is developmental, providing support and assistance to the President with a view to succeeding them over the following 3 years. This is therefore a 3-year commitment with the expectation that the person appointed to this Vice President role on 20 May 2021 and eventually become Deputy President in May 2022 and ultimately President in May 2023 for 1 year.


Here are the duties of the President and this is the role we will interview for:

  • Committee chair:

Chairing the General Committee ensuring good governance, financial stewardship and decision making

  • Strategy setting:

Leading the strategy board in agreeing and delivering the annual strategy appropriate to the Northern members and aligned to ICAEW strategy

  • Effective management:

Ensuring the objectives of the Society are carried out by the various office holders within the Society and in collaboration with the regional ICAEW team

  • Representing Northern Society:

Communicating effectively to the wider membership, representing the views of members and the society committees to the ICAEW and stakeholders, and speaking at and hosting Northern Society events


This role is voluntary and received no remuneration. The time commitment varies and so may best suit those with control over their own diary.

Duties are currently all virtual. Meetings under normal conditions are principally in Newcastle with occasional travel to Cumbria, Teesside, and London.
