Equally Ours is looking for a new Treasurer
Equally Ours is the UK charity that brings together people and organisations working across equality, human rights and social justice to make a reality of these in everyone's lives. We join up research, policy and communications to shift public opinion and policy in positive and powerful ways.
We believe that a good and strong society is a just and inclusive one. One where we are free from harm and can all contribute and flourish, whoever we are and whatever we do or don't have. A society that is equally ours.
We are looking for a treasurer with relevant financial skills and experience to join our trustee board. We're a small charity, woth a team of ten, so the treasurer will need to work closely with the Chief Executive and our finance team to provide oversight of the quarterly management accounts and annual report and accounts.
We're also an ambitious charity, so we're looking for someone who is strategic and can use their financial knowledge to help us grow and increase our impact in the longer term.
Our turnover is £400-600k, made up of grants from a variety of different funders, members' fees and earned income. The finance system is controlled through Xero and the finance function provided by Excluserv.
Currently chaired by Sarah Veale (whose term ends this year), the board is professional and friendly. Quarterly meetings and the AGM are held during business hours. Our offices and remote-working set up are accessible and we are happy to make any further reasonable adjustments. The term of office is 3 years, renewable.
As with all trustees, this is a voluntary role. We can pay reasonable travel expenses.
Please send a statement of 2 pages of A4 setting out why you would like to be the treasurer and how you meet the requirements of the role and person specification, and your CV (including two referees) to Kamille Leon, Office and Resources Manager, by noon on 11 June. If you have any access requirements please let Kamille know.
If you would like an informal conversation to find out more before applying, please contact Ali Harris, Chief Executive, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interviews will be held by zoom on Tuesday 22 June.
