Could you help shape the future of Citizens Advice Camden?
Do you have the financial expertise to provide expert financial governance to Citizens Advice Camden?
Citizens Advice Camden is seeking a Treasurer with the financial skills and acumen to help us secure a sustainable future so we can continue to provide free independent advice services to Camden residents.
Citizens Advice Camden provides independent advice services to people who live, work or study in Camden. We are governed and managed locally but with the benefit of being part of the influential national organisation, Citizens Advice. We deal with over 11,000 clients a year and help with over 36,000 issues. We have an annual turnover of £1.1 million, over 30 paid staff who support 120 volunteers.
This is an exciting opportunity for a treasurer to join our experienced and committed board of trustees. You will be a qualified accountant, ideally with some experience in the charity sector. You will have held the role of finance director or equivalent in an organisation with a turnover in excess of £1 million. You will have experience in delivering change and developing new business models. You will bring innovative ideas, enthusiasm for our values, and excellent judgment to help us deliver quality advice services to many of Camden’s most vulnerable residents.
This is a voluntary, unpaid appointment, although reasonable travel expenses will be paid.
We seek candidates who can bring innovative ideas, enthusiasm for our values, and excellent judgment to help determine our objectives. You will be prepared to spend time working with us attending at least four Board meetings a year and the Finance Audit and Risk Standing Committees that meets each quarter.
