Trustee Treasurer vacancy Posted on Monday, 20 February 2023

We are delighted to announce that a new Treasurer has been appointed.

VASL is a local charity based at Torch House in Market Harborough. We provide a range of excellent services to the communities of Harborough District, and support for family carers across Leicestershire. Our services aim to reduce loneliness and isolation, improve health and well-being and provide transport for the less mobile.

Volunteers are key to the way we deliver our services. One key volunteering role is that of Trustee. Our Trustees have responsibility for the longer term development and planning of the organisation, financial planning and oversight, and ensuring our services continue to be developed and delivered to a high standard. Our Board of Trustees meets every two months; it is made up of people with a range of experience and skills.

Our Treasurer of 12 years is now standing down and we are looking to recruit a new Trustee who is willing to take on the role of Treasurer. VASL is a medium sized Charity, with an average turnover of £500k per annum. Whilst not essential, it would be helpful if applicants had financial experience, and experience of charity finance and fundraising. The charity employs a book-keeper to manage the charity’s accounts. The successful applicant would be supported in the role by our Charity Manager and the Board’s Finance subcommittee.

We are committed to diversity, equality and inclusion in all we do and aim to ensure that the composition of the Board of Trustees reflects our local communities.

This post is unpaid but reasonable expenses will be paid. Applicants will be asked to submit a CV, complete an application form and a short skills audit.
