Honorary Treasurer required by Milton Keynes-based national charity

The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) is a leading national user-led charity for people paralysed by spinal cord injury (SCI). Being a user-led organisation, we are well placed to understand the everyday needs of those living with paralysis arising from a spinal cord injury and are here to meet those needs by providing key services, by sharing information and experiences, and by campaigning for change to ensure all those living with this impairment can lead a full and active life. We are here to support individuals from the moment their spinal cord injury happens and for the rest of their lives.

We are seeking an experienced Honorary Treasurer (ideally a qualified Accountant) to join our board of Trustees. In addition to fulfilling the usual duties, obligations and responsibilities of a trustee, the Honorary Treasurer will monitor the financial matters of the charity and report to the Trustee board at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation in line with good practice, and in accordance with the organisation’s governing documents and legal requirements. A knowledge of Charities SORP would therefore be advantageous.

The successful candidate will be required to prepare for and attend quarterly meetings of the Trustee board (held on Saturdays) and the organisation’s Annual General Meeting, which are held at the Charity’s offices in Milton Keynes. They will also be expected to participate (either face-to-face or via teleconference) in periodic meetings of smaller sub-committees, including the Audit & Assurance sub-committee.

The role is voluntary and therefore unremunerated; however, all approved expenses incurred whilst on SIA business will be reimbursed.
