The following organisations are seeking an Honorary Treasurer:
St Lukes Hospice
Closing Date: 6 February 2019.
Formal Interviews: Week commencing 18th February 2019
St Luke's Hospice looks after people in Harrow and Brent whose illnesses are no longer curable. We help and empower them to enjoy the best possible quality of life, knowing their family and carers are supported too. We aim to care for and support people in the place of their choice, whether it is in their own homes, supported by our Hospice at Home and Community Teams, in our Woodgrange Day Centre, or in our In Patient Unit.
We work in partnership with, and provide education and support to GPs, community teams, nursing homes, and other healthcare professionals to ensure the highest levels of care for patients, whatever the setting.
Joining St Luke’s provides a great opportunity to use your skills for a worthwhile cause, to give something back to the community, and be part of the leadership of a prestigious local charity. You will influence the quality of life of people in the last phase of their lives and support our 900 volunteers and 180 staff in delivering our exceptional care.
In order to deliver against our ambitious strategy, we have plans to grow our net income from retail and fundraising above £3m in the next few years. We are working in ever closer partnership with clinical commissioners, increasing our statutory income and reaching more local people and their families with specialist end of life care and support.
For the Main Board we are particularly seeking applications from people with skills and experience in finance and accountancy, healthcare, health policy and law – particularly commercial property, as well as anybody with a strong interest in end of life care.
Our independent Shops Board is looking for people with current expertise in retail strategy and planning.

Communication Matters is a UK-wide organisation committed to supporting people of all ages who find communication difficult because they have little or no clear speech. We are also the UK Chapter of ISAAC (International Society of Augmentative and Alternative Communication).
We run events throughout the year that are of interest to everyone involved with AAC: families, AAC users, teachers, therapists and other professionals. Our touring AAC Information Days showcase all the latest technology and we have a Study Days too. The main event of our year is the International AAC Conference which is held each September in Leeds.
Typically, the Treasurer’s duties include managing and overseeing the financial affairs of the organisation as well as Budgets, Reports, Policies and Financial Liaison. As a Trustee of Communication Matters (CM), you share, with the other members of the Board, the responsibility of deciding how the charity is run. Decisions made by the Board of Trustees will have an impact on what CM is able to achieve. We need your experience, skills and knowledge gained in other areas of life (personal or work) to support us to meet our aims. The Board of Trustees meets at the University of Leeds four times a year in March, May, September and November. These are usually two-day meetings and so overnight accommodation can be arranged for those living a long way from Leeds. Trustees are expected to attend all the Board Meetings and the Annual Conference. They might also be asked to represent CM at a small number of other meetings and events during the year. As well as these face-to-face meetings, Trustees communicate with each other frequently by email, phone and Skype. There’s a lot to do to keep us running smoothly! Trustees do not get paid for their role, but you can claim reasonable expenses.
The Board is currently made up of 11 Trustees. CM is a charitable company whose Trustees are also Directors. Trustees are usually appointed for a three-year term of office (the terms being staggered so that a small number change over each year). The Board can also co-opt Trustees from time to time as needed (the co-opted term is up to 12 months).
We are primarily looking for someone with an interest in finance or strategy/business, or who has a personal experience of AAC – i.e. an AAC user, parent or carer. However, if you have a different skill set, we would still encourage you to get in touch.
For further information on the role contact Emily Campbell
Please write up to 200 words on why you think you would make a good Trustee, including what skills you can bring to the Board and email it to email@example.com
