Trustee Treasurer

With a long-standing board member reaching the end of their term of office, and with an expansion of projects placing more emphasis on our fundraising strategy, we are now looking to recruit a Treasurer to help guide us through the next chapter.

We are looking for individuals who have a strong interest in Tackle’s work and a passion for supporting men’s health and improving user involvement in cancer care. Candidates should possess a positive, ‘can-do’ outlook as well as a good sense of humour. You will be joining us at a pivotal point in our history, with the potential to make a real difference to people living with and affected by prostate cancer.

The Treasurer will

  • Oversee Tackle’s financial affairs and ensure they continue to be legal, constitutional, and within accepted accounting practice.
  • Ensure proper records are kept and that effective financial procedures are in place relating to the charity’s core operations, including budgeting, cashflow management, and payroll.
  • Lead on appointing and liaising with auditors/an independent examiner.
  • Make recommendations on changes to banking systems, financial procedures, investments and reserves to support the development of Tackle’s work.
  • Monitor and report on the financial health of the charity and its projects.
  • Oversee the production of necessary financial reports/returns, accounts and audits.
  • With the Secretary, co-ordinate the submission to the Charity Commission and HMRC
    Regularly oversee regular reconciliations by the Executive Team.

Qualities

  • Knowledge and experience of current finance practice relevant to charity organisations.
  • Knowledge of bookkeeping and financial management (as necessary).
  • Good financial analysis skills.
  • An awareness of finance within the context of theatre productions.
  • Ability to communicate clearly. Familiarity with video-conferencing (via Zoom or Teams) would be advantageous but appropriate training could be arranged
  • Knowledge of our current accounting system (Xero) would be advantageous but appropriate training could be arranged

The charity has grown considerably in terms of reach, funding and output in recent years. We have robust financial procedures in place, and we are looking for an individual to help us to maintain and advance these as our organisation develops. This is a key role in our organisation and one that is crucial to our development going forwards. As our reach grows, we want to ensure that we remain on track of our finances and a model of best practice within the charity sector.

Application Instructions

As a user-led organisation, working in areas of low cultural opportunity, we are particularly keen to hear from candidates with no prior trustee experience and from those with experience of living or working in prostate cancer.
