  • Ensuring that proper accounting records are kept, and that appropriate accounting procedures and controls are in place.

  • Advising on the financial implications of the Redwing’s strategic plan, including overseeing the organisation’s financial risk-management process.
  • Ensuring investments and assets are maximised.
  • Lead on the appointment of, and liaison with, external auditors.
  • Oversee the development and implementation of systems for appraising, mitigating and reporting corporate risk.
  • Ensuring that the accounts are prepared and disclosed in the form required by relevant statutory bodies, for example, the HMRC and the Registrar of CICs.
  • Keeping the board informed about its financial duties and responsibilities and liaising with the Chief Executive to develop the financial understanding of the Board of Trustees.
