Job Details

Our partner commissions disabled artists and companies, across all art forms and scales. They aim to embed work by disabled artists within the UK and international cultural sectors, reach new audiences and shift perceptions.

Their activities have been delivered by disability-led arts organisations since 2013, but are now transitioning into being an independent organisation from 2022.

As they prepare for independence, setting up the new CIO and formulating finance systems, they are looking to appoint a Treasurer, to take over from the interim post holder. They need someone with both operational management accounts experience and an interest in overview of major funding bids as we begin to implement our financial strategy.

The Treasurer will maintain a strategic focus on the organisation's financial resources and their financial management, and work closely with the Chair and other Trustee, Finance Officer and auditors.

The Board meet six times a year. Three of these are formal meetings, and the other three take various formats from small group meetings to an annual away day, with remote attendance possible. The focus of the role is strategic and the Treasurer will not need to be involved in the organisation's operations on a day-to-day basis.

Please note that this is a voluntary position and therefore unremunerated.

Company

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).
