Job Details

Our partner works to improve access to free legal advice in the UK, training lawyers, trainees and students in legal advice and social welfare law before placing them as volunteers at Law Centres and advice agencies.

They are looking to appoint someone with financial expertise who will join the Board of Trustees as Treasurer.

The Treasurer will advise Trustees on all financial matters and regulatory requirements and update them on the financial status of the charity at regular intervals, recommending necessary actions where applicable. They will maintain budgetary oversight with the Executive Director, and ensure the effective and efficient administration of the charity and its resources by maintaining sound financial management and ensuring expenditure is in line with the agreed budget.

Trustee meetings are held every three months, currently using video-conferencing but traditionally in central London and commencing in the late afternoon or early evening. Trustees are also expected to undertake tasks and responsibilities on an ad hoc basis that are relevant to their own area of expertise. The total estimated time commitment required for the role is approximately 2 to 5 hours per month.

Please note that this is a volunteer role and there is therefore no remuneration.

For more Trustee/Treasurer roles, please visit the AfID website.


Accounting for International Development (AfID) offers every type of accountant, from anywhere in the world the opportunity to use their skills to support a broad range of non-profit organisations globally. Volunteer assignments of between 2 weeks and 12 months, &/or longer permanent placements, form part of our ongoing strategy to build the financial management capacity of charities in over 50 countries. 

AfID have now arranged assignments for over 1000 accountants from over 50 countries, providing over 250,000 hours of one to one support to more than 500 non-profit partners.

Our partners, which are a blend of international charities and grassroot NGOs, such as street child centres, hospitals, micro-finance institutions, conservation projects, women’s empowerment programmes and schools, are all doing amazing work to tackle extreme poverty and inequality but due to limited resources are unable to access vital financial management training.

The main focus of all AfID assignments is to develop the skills, confidence and potential of local people, enabling organisations to ultimately have the financial management capacity they need to deliver more sustainable programmes to their many beneficiaries, whilst maintaining good relations with their donors. Volunteers could be budgeting with a street child centre in Kampala (Uganda), coaching a hospital bookkeeper in Kigali (Rwanda) or financial reporting for a primary school in Kathmandu (Nepal).
