We are looking for a Trustee Treasurer who shares our values and vision and has the skills, qualities and expertise to provide oversight of the charity’s finances, including annual budgets, annual report and accounts. We are in the third year of implementing our five-year strategic plan (to 2020) which envisages significant growth in the charity from our current annual income level of around £4 million. Our aim is not growth for its own sake, but so that we can better respond to the enormous challenges facing our Christian partners across the Middle East.
Board meetings take place four times a year, at our head office in Amersham (Buckinghamshire), plus committee work four to five times a year. The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance, monitoring and strategic direction of the charity. It works with management to ensure that the charity fulfils the objects defined in its articles, acts in accordance with the charity’s vision and mission, and complies with relevant legal and regulatory requirements. Trustees are appointed in the first instance for a period of three years renewable.
As a Christian charity, and in accordance with our Articles of Association, trustees must be practising Christians.
N.B - In line with the charity’s Safeguarding policy the successful applicant will be asked to undertake a disclosure check prior to confirmation of appointment.
