Mind in Haringey (MiH) is looking to recruit a Treasurer Trustee to join its Board of Trustees. This is a great opportunity for a trustee with financial experience to make a difference in the lives of people who have challenges with their mental health and help them to lead fulfilling lives.
Our charity has an ambitious agenda and is committed to reducing the racial and health inequalities that exist in Haringey. We support all people across the borough with mental health issues, providing a range of services to meet the diverse needs of our community.
Our strategy for the organisation is implemented by our committed Chief Executive, staff and volunteers. The Board is also responsible for ensuring that the charity fulfils its responsibilities for the governance of the organisation and financial sustainability.
We are in a sound financial position with a turnover close to £1 million, notwithstanding the challenges of Covid, and have a capable Finance Manager as part of the senior manageent team. The Treasurer will work with the Finance Manager, Chief Executive and Chairman in particular, as well as with the rest of the Board as a Trustee.
There are currently seven Trustees from different age groups and professional backgrounds. As well as being interested in becoming a Trustee, the Treasurer Trustee should have financial experience and preferably a financial qualification and experience in financial management. Experience in charity fundraising would also be helpful although it is not essential. In addition, your commitment, energy and interest in helping those with mental health issues in Haringey, is key to this role.
The Trustee Board meets every two months in the early evening. The Treasurer Trustee would chair the Trustee Finance and Remuneration Committee which meets every three months.
The Trustee role is very rewarding and we offer induction, support and training.
People from our black and minority ethnic community are encouraged to apply for the role.
If you are interested in applying, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 19th April 2021 with your CV and a cover letter explaining your interest and suitability for the role.
