A prominent role within this vibrant charity as it strives to support more children and young people who have Down Syndrome. We advocate strong stewardship and value for money. Making a real difference.
We employ a finance administrator who deals with the day to day financial tasks and pay roll. They also prepare the annual accounts ready for auditing. The treasurer role is about having an overview and ensuring clarity for the board.
We seek someone with a strong background in finance able to support budget setting, monitoring and reporting, financial strategic planning, willing to work alongside our paid finance assistant and assist in the preparation and presentation of our annual accounts.
Grant/bid writing a plus but not essential. An interest and understanding of the challenges faces by families where there is child with Down Syndrome.
Able to attend regular board meetings in Somerset and provide an up to date report with support from finance assistant. Also be willing to input to the strategic vision and direction of the charity and its services as a whole.
As a charity we are very reliant on public funds and to this end wish to ensure responsible stewardship and value for money whilst striving to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people who have Down Syndrome. As treasurer, you will have a complete overview of our finances and how they are spent and will work closely with the Director to explore funding streams, social enterprise opportunities and expansion of our work. We have 21 years experience and are recognized as the 'Go To' service across the South West for families and professionals.
This is an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people who have Down Syndrome. Working alongside a small but dedicated team of family support workers, youth workers and trustees, this is a great opportunity to either gain skills with a mid-size charity and/or offer your expertise, knowledge and skills to help us sustain and develop over the coming years.
