Whitchurch Silk Mill

Job Title: Treasurer
Location: Whitchurch Silk Mill, Hampshire
Time Commitment: 4 meetings per year
Contact Details: https://whitchurchsilkmill.org.uk/opportunities/
Closing date: 2024-02-18

Could you be our new Treasurer? We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic, prudent individual to oversee the finances of Whitchurch Silk Mill Trust.

Our current Treasurer is retiring from the Board of Trustees; the Trust will lose a long-serving member who regularly provides the Board and Mill Director with valuable advice on various matters. So, we are now looking to appoint a Trustee to provide expertise in this field.

You do not need to have held a formal Treasurer role before (though if you have – great!). However, you will be good with figures and familiar with accountancy and financial management basics. You may be an accountant or bookkeeper or run your own local business.

Specific Skills and Experience

  • Knowledge and experience of current finance practice relevant to charity organisations.
  • Good financial analysis skills.
  • Knowledge of financial management in a small/medium-sized enterprise.
  • Ability to communicate clearly with all members of the Mill Team.
  • Previous fundraising experience would be a bonus, but a willingness to be involved is essential.

Additional information

Number of meetings per annum/time commitment: Four board meetings, each lasting around 2.5 hours, held on Saturday mornings. Approximately four other hybrid meetings per year.

Daytime or evening meetings: Daytime

Closing date for applications: The deadline for applications is 18 February 2024
