Added: 10 August 2018
Time Out Group (North West) has been working in the Wilmslow and Macclesfield areas of Cheshire for over 15 years. It has from the beginning been a members’ led organisation and has therefore developed in line with the interests and needs of its membership – adults with learning disabilities.
Each year more adults with learning disabilities contribute to improving lives with the support of Time Out Group. Together we work for greater independence, so that our members have a bigger say in what happens in their lives and increased opportunities.
Our Trustee Treasurer will think strategically, have independent judgement and be able to work effectively as part of a team of committed Trustees to deliver a sustainable business.
As Trustee Treasurer you will be committed to the principles of effective governance and financial management in charities. You will have an accountancy or financial qualification, experience or awareness of charity accounting practice is preferable but not essential.
As Trustee Treasurer, your role is to oversee Time Out Group’s financial matters, ensuring we use our resources effectively to achieve our strategic aims. In common with all Trustees, your role is to be collectively responsible as a Board Member for the business of the Charity generally. Your specific duties as Trustee Treasurer are to:
- Report to the Trustees at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation, ensuring good practice and adherence to legal requirements
- Ensure that effective financial and accounting policies and procedures are in place and appropriate
- Oversee the development and presentation of budgets, accounts, financial statements and financial reports to Trustees liaising with staff as appropriate
- Bring your financial knowledge and experience to bear creatively as support, advice and challenge in Board decision making
- Contribute to strategic development and planning, providing advice and guidance in support of Time Out Group’s objectives
What we need from you
You will be willing to meet the time commitments and to accept the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship. Board meetings take place every other month in the evening. This is an unpaid voluntary role however all reasonable expenses incurred will be reimbursed

All Saints' Church, Banstead
Added: 6 August 2018
All Saints’ Church, Banstead, is a relatively small but active parish church (Church of England) in the Diocese of Guildford, with an annual income of around £160,000. It is a registered charity, no. 1133791.
We are fortunate to have a full-time Vicar assisted by a curate in training and supported by the Church Council, in working with the local community pastorally and socially. We have the care of a Grade II* listed church building and a large churchyard, expensive delights but helpful for engaging with local people.
Banstead, still known as a village but now a substantial one, is in Surrey, just outside Greater London and within the M25 circle. The church’s postcode is SM7 2NN.
Much of the day-to-day work of cash handling, book-keeping, payroll, etc. is dealt with by other members of the Finance Team, but we need someone to coordinate and deal with the larger picture - preparing the Annual Accounts in accordance with appropriate SORPs, working out budgets, making investment decisions and dealing with large project costs, reporting regularly to the church council and annually to the Charity Commission and Guildford Diocese. We believe a qualified Chartered Accountant is most likely to meet our need.
Support is available from the Finance Team, and the Parish Office has computing facilities and copier available. The Diocese advises on many aspects.
Hours worked would be generally under the Treasurer’s own control, and vary according to the stage of the financial year.
The Churchwardens are Alan Clarke and Susan Major, who would welcome enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org

Human Appeal is a faith-based charity inspired by Islamic values. We started in a small flat in Manchester in 1991 and this year we have worked in 24 countries around the world. Our aim is to abolish poverty by providing humanitarian aid, sustainable development programs and championing advocacy for our beneficiaries worldwide.
We are currently recruiting for committed individuals to join our Board as a Trustee and expand our range of Trustee skills and expertise. Our organisation has flourished due to the hard work, passion and professionalism of our team and we are now seeking new Trustees to aid our continued development.
The Ideal Candidate
- We are specifically looking for Trustees with experience in the Financial Sector.
- You do not need to have prior Trustee experience but we are looking for someone who at least has a good degree of management and governance experience in a business or charity setting, and who is familiar with the responsibilities of a Trustee and the Charity Commission Guidance for Trustees.
- Our organisation works primarily in Africa, Asia and the Middle East and we have International Field Offices in Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Palestine, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey and Yemen so it essential that our new Trustees are passionate, knowledgeable and well-informed about the issues faced by our beneficiaries in these parts of the world.
- Human Appeal is currently undergoing a very busy period of innovation and we are reviewing our strategy so we are looking for people who are willing to donate the necessary time and effort to assist with this at Trustee level, particularly over the next 6 months which will be key for our organisation. Following this, our expectation is for your involvement to reduce to Trustee meetings on a once per quarter basis.
Becoming a Trustee is a fantastic opportunity to play a key role in the strategic leadership of Human Appeal and really make a difference to the lives of our beneficiaries worldwide. It is a really rewarding position and will also provide you with vital further skills and experience in management and governance.
NB: This is a Voluntary position and does not demand any monetary Trustee investment
