The following organisations are seeking an Honorary Treasurer:
Equity Charitable Trust
Added: 26 January 2018
Since its inception in 1989, the Equity Charitable Trust has provided myriad industry professionals with Education grants to retrain, re-qualify and obtain valuable new skill sets for those wanting to leave the profession or develop a second income stream.
In addition to our Educational arm, we offer one-off Welfare grants to industry members who are experiencing an unforeseen health or professional setback. We are also here to discreetly aid those who need help in ‘unpacking’ the benefits system.
We deliver occasional career development workshops to help our clients ‘up their game’ and enhance their skill set so that can earn between acting jobs.
With our years of experience and strong network of collaborating with our fellow theatrical charities, we are here to show you the way forward when you think you’ve reached a dead end.
A charity which supports members of the acting profession, is seeking an Honorary Trustee from a financial background to oversee our part time Financial Advisor, working alongside the Chairman and Vice Chair. We are seeking someone who has experience in monitoring the charity’s external investment managers as well as providing advice on the charity’s property and management of associated leases.
He/she will join the Management Committee, which meets every eight weeks. He/she will also be in a position to advise on the annual Financial Statements and maximising interest earnings from the charity’s surplus cash.

Monty's Community Hub
Added: 10 January 2018
Monty’s Community Hub is a community development charity, social enterprise and fresh expression of church – all rolled into one. Monty’s started life in 2013, when a group of volunteers from the local community came together to save the old council youth centre from closing due to funding cuts. Based at the heart of our community (one of the most deprived area in the UK), Monty’s was soon reimagined as an inclusive ‘community hub’ open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and has since grown to include over thirty volunteers running a dozen weekly activities (youth clubs, community café, groups for young parents, older people, and many others) and regular community events for hundreds of people. We also run a social enterprise based around bikes and cycling, and are host to a small church community. We are now seeking to grow our Board of Trustees, and are looking for people with the vision to support our creative work in enabling transformed lives within a flourishing community on the edge of Southampton. We are particularly keen to find a new Treasurer before our current Treasurer retires this Spring.
Our new Treasurer will need to oversee all our finances - including payroll for two members of staff, HMRC, pensions, gifts aid, paying bills/expenses, and preparing financial reports. Our retiring treasurer spends up to two hours a week on these tasks - often less, sometimes more (eg, if we have a Trustees meeting).
You will be supported in this roles by the chair of trustees.
Our board of trustees meet quarterly, usually under two hours on a weekday evening. Our trustees and treasurer are also often invited to Monty’s events and activities; you are welcome to join in, but your participation is entirely optional. We take our responsibilities as trustees very seriously, but our meetings are reasonably informal, with lots of laughter and very real friendships.
