The role will involve:
- contributing actively to the Trustee Board by giving strategic direction, checking effective financial governance, providing a financial conduit between the senior leadership team and the Board, and ensuring the organisation operates within Company and Charity law;
- attending six Board meetings a year, participating in sub-committees, and devoting some additional time to the OnSide mission including attendance at events where practicable;
- providing advice and support on an ad hoc basis.
We are looking for an individual who is ideally a qualified accountant or has a very strong background in financial management, has experience of the financial challenges facing charities and who genuinely cares about young people and the issues they are facing. You will be dynamic and motivated, able to contribute actively to the Trustee Board, can apply good, independent judgement and act with integrity and strategic vision.
We strive towards improving the diversity of the Trustee Board with regard to ethnicity, gender, age and socio-economic background as we seek to be representative of the diverse population of the young people we serve, and we encourage applications from all backgrounds. However, the one thing we must all have in common is our desire to raise the aspirations of young people across the country.
