The Orchard Project
Closing Date: 5 June 2019 Based: Nationwide
The Orchard Project is the only organisation solely dedicated to the creation, rejuvenation and celebration of community orchards in the UK. Our team of 17 staff across England and Scotland work with communities to develop thriving and productive community orchards, supporting groups to grow, harvest and enjoy their own local fruit. We have a track record of working with communities in deprived areas and 75% of the orchards we have planted are in the top third of areas in the UK with the highest indices of deprivation. We also run a social enterprise in London producing cider made from community sourced and waste fruit.
We need you!
After ten years of success and growth we are looking for a new Honorary Treasurer to join our board. We are seeking an individual with substantial experience of financial management in the charity, commercial or public sector. Currently our Board consists of nine trustees with varied experience and skills including global food supply chain directorship, procurement, environmental policy, charity management, and business development. We are a lively and friendly Board and we enjoy welcoming new people and talents to support our exciting journey.
This is an amazing opportunity to get under the hood of our ambitious and dynamic charity and help us achieve our mission. As a national charity we have reach, but are also small enough to be very agile with decision making. Your input will make a huge difference to our development.
The role is unremunerated, although reasonable expenses are paid. The annual commitment will be based around 4-6 Board meetings. Other internal and external inputs lead us to anticipate that the Treasurer will need to commit a minimum of 12-15 days per year in fulfilling their role.
