Job Description - EXPIRED

Are you passionate about changing the world for street children? Do you have the skills which could support and enhance the Board here at Toybox? If "yes", then you are the person for us!

Based in Blechley, Milton Keynes, Toybox is a UK charity with a mission to end the injustice of street children, one of the world's most vulnerable groups. The United Nations estimates the number of street children around the world to be in the hundreds of millions.

Established in 1992, Guatemala City was the first place Toybox started working. We are still there today, working with children who are living or working on the streets. Our mission is unchanged from those early days. In 2005 the organisation extended its geographical reach and we are now working in five countries in Latin America. In the year to 31 March 2014 over 10,600 children received support through Toybox funded programmes. In these 20 years income has grown to just under £2 million with private donations accounting for 80% of income.

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic financial professional to join our committed Board of Trustees, as Treasurer. With a sound knowledge of charity finance and experience of working at a senior level, you will liaise with the Chairman, Chief Executive, Director of Finance and external auditors regarding all financial matters. As a member of the Board of Trustees you will also be collectively responsible for the charity's governance and strategic planning. Ideally you will also have experience or knowledge of the contexts that we operate within.

The Treasurer will oversee the financial matters of Toybox in line with good practice and in accordance with the governing document and legal requirements and report to the Board of Trustees at regular intervals about its financial health. The Treasurer will also ensure that effective financial controls and procedures are in place as appropriate.

Responsibilities specific to the role of the Treasurer:

*To oversee and present budgets, accounts, management accounts and financial statements to the Board of Trustees after discussion with the finance director where applicable.
*To ensure proper accounts and records are kept, ensuring financial resources are spent and invested in line with the charity's objectives, policies, good governance, legal and statutory requirements.
*To be instrumental in the development and implementation of financial, reserves and investment policies.

In addition to the responsibilities the Treasurer will have in overseeing the financial matters of the charity, all trustees continue to be jointly and severally responsible and liable for the administration of the charity.

The successful candidate will be required to carry out an enhanced DBS check.

How to apply: Please send your CV and covering letter detailing your suitability for the role to or marked 'private and confidential' to Lynne Morris, Toybox, G4 Challenge House, Sherwood Drive, Bletchley, MK3 6DP by 9am on Tuesday 5th May 2015.
