Anne Frank Trust UK
Closing Date: 18 November 2019 Based: Kentish Town, London
This is an exciting time for the Anne Frank Trust UK. With a new management team and forward strategy, we are enhancing our highly regarded education programmes, and launching innovative pilot projects around empowerment, creativity and voice. We are seeking a new treasurer to lead the financial oversight and guidance that will be fundamental to these ambitious developments. Board meetings of 2.5 hours take place four times a year on weekday evenings in central London or at our office in Kentish Town.
Every trustee is linked to one of the Trust's regions across the UK or to the prisons project. The link trustee undertakes to visit projects in that region once a year, and to meet staff and service users, in order to gain insight into the charity's frontline work.
The treasurer is a member of the Board's Finance and General Purposes Committee, which meets 4 times a year, usually 2-3 weeks before each Board meeting. The 1.5- to 2-hour meetings are held at times and venues convenient to trustees. As well as monitoring the charity’s finances, the committee reviews risk and organisational policies and infrastructure. It makes recommendations to the Board around budget-setting and policy decisions.
